Revealed during yesterday’s Nintendo investor meeting in Japan, there’s a new Kirby game headed to the Nintendo Wii, and this time around the pink puffball is a bit more substantial than he was in Kirby’s Epic Yarn.
Another Kirby game due out in Japan a little over a year since the last? The strong critical and fan reaction to last year’s Kirby’s Epic Yarn must have really proved the power of the pink to someone at Nintendo.
The new, currently unnamed game looks to be a return to Kirby’s classic side-scrolling, super power-sucking ways, which should surely please fans that were happy with Epic Yarn but felt it didn’t capture the true essence of a traditional Kirby game.
Kirby. He sucks to be you.
