About The Game

Kirby Like You've Never Seen Him Before

Do you have the magic touch? Then guide Kirby as he sets off on grand adventures in a hand-sculpted clay world. Draw lines on the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller to create rainbow-colored clay ropes to move Kirby around freely, or tap him to attack enemies or blast through obstacles. Transformations include a submarine, rocket and tank. In underwater levels, Kirby dons a swim mask. If his power level gets too low, a clay bandage appears on his head.

FEATURES:

  • Kirby comes to life in a world of clay, which creates a beautiful backdrop for Kirby's adventure.
  • You take control of Kirby with the stroke of a stylus and draw on the GamePad touch screen to guide Kirby through the world.
  • Use the GamePad to control Kirby's many transformations in unique new ways.
  • The intuitive drawing mechanic is a spiritual successor to Kirby: Canvas Curse for Nintendo DS that builds on the game play and takes it in a new direction.
