E3 2010 Trailer:



Platform: Wii™
Launch Date: October 17, 2010
ESRB: RP (Rating Pending)
Game Type: 2-D Platformer
Players: 1-2
Developer: Good-Feel



General Information:

Kirby’s first console platform game since the Nintendo 64™ days introduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the game play and allows the ever-morphing Kirby™ to take on a variety of new forms. It’s a one-of-a-kind platformer that lets players explore high and low for hidden objects and fun adventure

FEATURES:

• The look of the world is stunning, but it’s also interactive. Pulling on stray threads might reveal hidden areas. When Kirby literally goes behind the scenes, the virtual fabric warps and bends to show his location.

• Thanks to his versatile yarn composition, Kirby can take on a variety of forms both in his common actions and when he transforms into powerful vehicles. When Kirby dashes, he zips around as a car. In water, he turns into a submarine. At times he can even transform into a massive robotic tank, a UFO and other vehicles.

• Two players can play through the entire game together*.

• Gems and collectible items are scattered throughout the environments for players to find.

Looks like fun. I'll definitely at least rent it. Lots of side scrolling from nintendo this year.

I wasn't expecting much when I saw the first couple seconds, but it looks enjoyable. The music tracks sounds VERY familiar though and can't place it.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

Inb4 someone says, "Moar like Kirby's Epic YAWN"

But, I'm interested in this title. Time to watch the trailer posted in the first post now.

Edit: Wow, that's impressive. Reminds me of Paper Mario, except with Kirby and yarn. Definitely looks awesome and unique.

I'm interested in it, but I wonder if it'll be long enough to justify a full price purchase?

Also, it looks like they took away a couple staples of most Kirby games: flying and copying abilities.

Paper Mario, Toon Link, and now Yarn Kirby.

Not really interested in Epic Yarn. I agree with the above poster that it looks like Paper Mario, in terms of visuals. Never been a big Kirby fan, and I too was surprised to see that copying abilities seems to have vanished.

It looks more like Yoshi's Story from the N64. I also think this game is absolutely beautiful, and I'm simply glad to see another 2D game coming out. Not going to proclaim it as an Earth shattering game - just a fun one. I mean c'mon man - unzipping/crumpling the landscape? That's awesome.

Yeah, I thought that was really creative.

I think this game looks incredible. The creativity on display is off the charts and the game play looks fantastic too. A preview commentary, if you can call it that, I think at gamespot.com but don't quote me, was very positive on it after having played it on the floor. Said they couldn't wait to play more of it. I can't wait for it!

What the Fuck? This is not Kirby. Why can't you suck enemies up and swallow them and gain their powers? That is Kirby, not this tripe.

Kirby didn't have that ability when he began on the GB. He didn't have it in Kirby's Pinball Land. Or Kirby's Dream Course. Or in Canvas Curse. Probably a few more of his titles don't have this ability (someone else would have to say). You can hate on the game of course but if that is your only reason, it's kinda weak.

I think this is the second Kirby game that I've been legitimately interested in (the other being Kirby Canvas Curse). Really looking forward to hearing more!

Really? I did only play 2 Kirby's on GB (plus pinball but obviously it didn't have that feature), so I was going off that. That's not my only gripe, just one of them. It still doesn't interest me though.

That's fine. I'm just saying people on the other side of the spectrum are calling it a rehash. In the world of gaming, this is about as common a no-win scenario as there is when it comes to trying to please people.

Looks interesting. I don't like that Kirby is an outline though. He should at least be a solid color. I like Kirby games so I'll probably get it.

I think this is my favorite Wii game showing out of the event, and I don't even really like Kirby. The influx of side-scrollers is very welcome.

Holy crap at the commercial. I wonder what else Nintendo does that's been preempted by old stuff only they remember.
