Kirby’s Epic Yarn. What to Expect.

Kirby finally returns to Home Console gaming in an all new form. Kirby has made it into the world of cloth and his abilities have changed to match. So the question remains how Epic will Kirby’s latest Yarn of a story be?

It’s been 7 years since Kirby was on a home console and even longer since his last home console platformer. All Kirby stories follow a fairly basic story, and Epic Yarn is no different. Kirby is walking along Dreamland one day when he comes along a mysterious looking tomato. Kirby decides to think with his mouth and eat it. The tomato belonged to an evil-wizard called Yin-Yarn. Yin-Yarn wasn’t happy when he finds out about Kirby eating it though so Kirby is sucked into a magic sock. This sock teleports him to Patch Land, a world made entirely of cloth. But it also changes Kirby himself. Now made of string his normal, suck in powers are worthless. Yin-Yarn has separated Patch Land into pieces, so Kirby decides to help save Patch Land.

Since Kirby can no longer suck in enemies, he now uses part of his own body to whip his enemies. Kirby can change his form into things like a car for example. He’s lost his float ability since, obviously, he now has nothing to hold air in. The game’s graphics are as colourful as a Kirby game has always been, although obviously with a more textile appearance now due to being set in a world of cloth and string. The game features 2 player co-op with special areas of levels designed to utilise this to its full extent.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn has already been released in America and Japan last year, so many sites already have their reviews up if you want more convincing on if it’s a good purchase.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is due for release in Europe on February 25th 2011 for Nintendo Wii systems.
