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.
