This game looks amazingly kawai. Do want.

Anyone else find it amusing that the game is set inside a sock?

Edit: I just noticed the awesome boxart.

Oh man, Season 6 of Bleach and the new Percy Jackson book are coming out the same time as this? Man, my wallet's gonna be empty soon!



DrCruse said:

Looks good. The only thing I don't like is that every Kirby game now is either a remake or gimmick-based. Why can't we just have some pure Kirby awesomeness?



Corbs said:

I can't WAIT for this one to come out in October. #1 on my most-wanted list right now.

That looks like pretty much the greatest thing ever. I think it's more of a rent then a buy though.

First reactions:
Aww he's so cute and original.
and he just grabbed someone with a whip made of yarn and threw them against a wall.

Just goes to show how creativity and style can trump processing power. Excellent.

Wow, this game continues to look more amazing with every little bit of it they show, especially the ways in which new levels unlock on the map screen (Lines extending to new stages? Pah! Where I come from, we wake up hibernating bears with alarm clocks and make genies blow tapestries open!)

On another note, the NL font makes "Epic Yarn" look like "Epic Yam" at the top of this page

This looks very, very cute! There's no doubt that this will be simply beautiful.



Fuzzy said:

The trailers seem to get better and better! Day one for me. Now the question is- when is day one?



LuWiiGi said:

@NL Is this trailer on Because if it is, would it be possible for you to use the trailer on that website, because Youtube is blocked on my and other peoples' computers.

I love Kirby and grew up playing on GBC and N64 but this just seems "too adorable" lol. Maybe my heart will change in 30 days T_T



Punny said:

This is just about as cute as kittens and puppies. Any game that manages to look awesome even with a teddy bear level and a yarn look deserves praise.

Every trailer I see has Kirby's Epic Yarn looking ever more epic! Cannot wait for this game to release!!!



SMW said:

Every Kirby game is a must-buy for me, but Epic Yarn is truly amazing.



Crunc said:

This is such an amazing looking game. I can not wait for the release. Alas, I'll have to wait until xmas to be able to give it to my kids (and me). Sigh.



grumblebuzzz said:

Can't wait for it. Still kind of puzzled as to the lack of a health meter in the videos and screenshots though. I wonder if it's one hit deaths? That would certainly pose a good challenge to the game!

Edit: Wait... Just read in an article that you can't die? O_o Um... I don't know about all that. Still stoked and excited for the game and all, but no deaths is kind of weird for a Kirby game. Makes me worry that it will be too easy.

Man this is even cooler than I thought before! Those new vehicles are awesome too! It makes me not even care that he can't suck up enemies and eat them. It was time for a much needed change anyway, as Kirby was the one series aside from Animal Crossing being worse that had games that felt the exact same from its predecessors.

The level transitions are genius though! Get items and their effects open new ways. I love it!
