Kirby

We all thought that Paperbeatsscissors had already conquered the Internet with this Hulk/Hulk designer t-shirt, but it turns out it was just getting warmed up. Now it has gone and made a new Tamagotchi-style virtual pet for y...
I hate to ruin the magic, but it's not too difficult to make Kirby snacks. Is it round and pink? Yes? Then it's a Kirby snack. Is it not round and pink? Yes? I don't know what the hell you just did. How did you screw this up? It's like an "If, then, else" statement if I knew how to do that. Someone do it for me, and then I'll show you my attempt, which was probably hilariously off.
The first episode of Game News Haikus went over pretty well with people who watched it. If you're one of those people, thanks for taking the time. If you're not, maybe watch that one and the new one and every future episode?...
We've all been there, Kirby. It gets better. It has to get better. @haraguccho [Twitter]


Let's take a quick look at the history of videogames with clay-based graphics. Skullmonkeys is a one-off that most people don't even remember. The ClayFighter series has been dormant since the N64 days. Armikrog has been in d...
Curses aren't anything to scoff at. Anyone that's played Castlevania II: Simon's Quest knows that. So do Chicago Cubs fans, all too well. But, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse makes jinxing hijinks look so tolerable. Ma...
Tales of Zestiria was the best-selling game in Japan last week, netting over 340,000 sales in its domestic debut, according to data compiled by Media Create. For reference, here's how previous entries in the series fared in t...
This is the good stuff right here. HAL Laboratory has a delightful little website with making-of photos for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and a video showing how to create your own clay Kirby. Between this, The Neverhood, Skullmonkeys, and The Swapper, I find myself wishing that more developers would pick up a clay set. These handcrafted games will forever feel special. [Via NeoGAF]
This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute. This is out exclusively for Wii U on February 20, 2015. Who's in?
[Swery is the man behind Deadly Premonition and D4. The latter has kept him busy over the last year, so he hasn't been able to finish every game he loves. But love is not finite, finished, and with an eyebrow game this o...
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is out in a couple months, so Nintendo is starting up the hype train for the clay puffball's adventure. We had previously heard that multiplayer would involve additional players platforming as Wad...
The last three times I've written about Club Nintendo rewards, Kirby made his way onto the list. That trend continues today with the new set of game offers available until January 19, 2015: Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Wii U) - 200...
Nintendo has revealed the Japanese boxart for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and hot damn it looks delicious, er, I mean beautiful. That stylus is just drawing all over that delicious cake, which kind of pisses me off, but ...
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for Wii U has a release date: February 2015. The Canvas Curse inspired line-drawing game will also have four player multiplayer. Three other players will be able to play as Waddle Dee and...
In Europe, Club Nintendo members can spend their points on the 46-track Kirby: Triple Deluxe soundtrack. The CD costs 2,000 Stars and listening to it will make you feel good, I bet. Not exactly relevant to me as an American, ...
Here's a new Smash assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Let's let Sakurai explain. "Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up."
The French Super Smash Bros. site has a nice little gallery up with Wii U and 3DS screens of everyone's favorite Brawler, Meta Knight. Hoping for any other stragglers to get announced, or new characters? ALSO: Sakurai's Miive...
Like the DS before it, the 3DS is becoming one of my favorite platforms. Now that we are several years into its life, it has a pretty great selection of first and third-party games. There are enough now that I have fallen beh...
It's about time we saw some more Kirby 3DS XL accessories, and these are far too cute to pass up. I thought I was going to have some difficulty passing up that Kirby keychain puzzle, but now I'm practically throwing money at ...
Kirby: Triple Deluxe was a pretty great game, due in part because of its two well crafted mini-games -- a rhythm game involving King Dedede, and its Smash Bros. like Kirby Fighters Z. Well in Japan, they're apparently do...
One of my favorite parts of Kirby: Triple Deluxe was collecting all of the adorable little keychains. I've been hoping to see an entire set of them released for purchase, pixelated goodness and all, but I've not seen them jus...
How's Destructoid wrapping up E3? Frantically cranking out previews from the press room? Hustling around the show floor to see as much as possible? We probably should be. Instead, we're drawing pictures of Kirby. Really really good pictures of Kirby.
Nearly ten years ago, Kirby: Canvas Curse graced our original Nintendo DS handhelds, showing us (once again) that Kirby games could be about things other than floating around, ingesting bugs, and vomiting stars. Canvas Curse ...
We just can't get enough Kirby, it seems. Nintendo announced Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for the Wii U today, which looks to be a clear follow-up to the DS title Canvas Curse. Not much is known at this point, but it looks like Kirby will have a ton of different forms to morph into, and the same stylus gameplay will be present.
You can never have too many Kirby figures, and this Kirby Tsumu Tsumu set includes 5-10 figures of Kirby doing what he does best: being freakin' adorable. The tiny Kirby figures can be stacked on top of each other, and if you...
Kirby: Triple Deluxe has landed in Europe, and Nintendo wants you to celebrate the event with the Pink + White 2DS, an adorable slice of fluff that's Kirby pink. Oh, and it's not available in the US. And it doesn't come with ...
The Japanese weekly sales charts ending on May 11 reveal 14 of the top 20 spots have been overtaken by various 3DS games, including Mario Golf: World Tour, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Yo...
European gamers who buy Kirby: Triple Deluxe from the 3DS eShop prior to July 13, 2014 will receive a free download code for Kirby's Dream Land 2, Nintendo has announced. This 1995 Game Boy title is a reminder of that phase w...
Kirby Triple Deluxe is out (and good) and this trailer -- the full version of this one -- is so well done I might just buy two copies. If you want to see more Triple Deluxe, there's a few other cute trailers out there (below). GoNintendo also has a complete video walkthrough, the final boss, and so on.
Have you ever noticed how Kirby has mean-looking eyebrows on box art in the US? It's one of those things that can't be unseen, like the little arrow in the FedEx logo. Anyway, I've never understood it -- Kirby is such a feel-...
Whenever a new Nintendo system is released, it's inevitable that a Kirby game will appear on it. Whether it's a console or a portable, or that game is a racing, golf, or standard platformer is uncertain, but you will&nbs...
HAHAH! Wow, Nintendo. Intense much? Gotta love those lyrics, too.  By the way, I'm playing Kirby: Triple Deluxe and it's fantastic. You'll see when it comes out next month for 3DS.
NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic...
Guess what guys -- there's another 2DS/3DS variant coming out! Not that I'm complaining of course, but Nintendo of Europe has just revealed a Pink + White 2DS variant that will be released alongside of Kirby: Triple Del...
During today's Nintendo Direct, president Satoru Iwata announced that Kirby: Triple Deluxe will launch on May 2nd, 2014 in North America. That's the exact same date as Mario Golf: World Tour, also launching on the 3DS. In the meantime, enjoy the new trailer above!
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is looking great. There is still no word on a release date outside of Japan, but in its first week of Japanese availability it has already sold 214,208 copies. That's more four times as much as the number...
It's only now hitting me how much I want a proper Kirby on 3DS and Kirby: Triple Deluxe appears to be exactly that. While the game released in North America and Europe yet, it's out now in Japan. Wasting no time, NintenDaan ...
The newest Super Smash Bros. 2014 cast member has been confirmed -- and it's none other than Kirby's rival King Dedede. He'll sport his signature hammer once again, and there's plenty of screens showing him in action, as...
Fact: Kirby games have always been fun no matter what. Even Crystal Shards had its moments! So I'm not surprised that Kirby: Triple Deluxe is looking like a ton of fun. This four-minute video gives us a great overview of wha...
