Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn unravels onto 3DS today and Nintendo has shared a launch trailer to celebrate. You can check it out for yourself above.
This 3DS rerelease's Ravel Abilities, new mini-games, and optional harder difficulty make this a very solid purchase indeed; we praised its focused gameplay design, creativity, and strong art direction in our review earlier this week, going on to say that this is the best way to experience the game and absolutely worth it for those who missed out on the original Kirby’s Epic Yarn on Wii.
Of course, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is also interesting in that it could well be the final major 3DS game released by Nintendo. This is purely speculation on our part, we should point out, but with zero games officially on the horizon from the Japanese giant, we wouldn't bet against this being the console's final hoorah, despite Nintendo's supposed commitment to it going forward.
In fact, there are only two games scheduled to launch on the system going forward at all, unless more get revealed soon. Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth is set to launch this June, and Shovel Knight: King of Cards is expected to arrive at some point this year, although this was recently delayed.
