Kirby and the Rainbow Curse has been out in North America since 20th February, providing Wii U gamers in the region with their first major retail release on the home console of 2015. Until now gamers in Europe were simply told it was coming later in the year, with the expectation - oddly - that it'd arrive in the second half of 2015.

Thankfully some sanity has prevailed, and Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that it's now a little under two months away; Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush - as it'll be known in Europe - will arrive on 8th May.

This title primarily uses the GamePad and stylus controls to draw lines on which Kirby can roll, though another three players can join in and help with more conventional platforming. This is a game some are regarding as possibly the best-looking on Wii U yet, with a gorgeous clay aesthetic to enjoy on the TV - if you can drag your eyes up from the GamePad screen.

We enjoyed this one in our Kirby and the Rainbow Curse review which, despite a few areas that we felt didn't deliver to their potential, received a 7/10.

How many of you Wii U owners in Europe are planning to pick this one up on 8th May?
