Kirby, Your New Game Deserves Better Than This

UK launch is... underwhelming

It's been out in North America for what seems like forever, but today is Europe's chance to take home Kirby's Epic Yarn, and to celebrate Nintendo went all-out to recreate the game's sugary-sweet atmosphere in London's beautiful Elephant and Castle area.

The official press invite promised:

For one day only Elephant and Castle will be decked out in a colourful array of knitting to bring the feel-good vibe of Kirby’s Epic Yarn and replace grey with colour.

Sadly the grey British weather prevented the event from fulfilling its potential, lending the whole thing a slightly grim and grisly atmosphere at odds with the super-cheery game it served to promote.

Still, at least the game is a winner, so that's something.
