After what has felt like an eternity of waiting, I have finally gotten my hands on Kirby's Epic Yarn during PAX Prime. Both myself and the esteemed Jonathan Holmes took on the roles of Kirby and Prince Fluff for some co-op patchwork antics. So, here's the burning question -- has Nintendo just been stringing us along? 

The answer, from what I have played, is no. Kirby's Epic Yarn is an absolute delight. It's not a challenging game (losing points rather than dying is the penalty for getting hit by enemies) but it's a game that just makes you grin from ear to ear. The co-op works surprisingly well, with Kirby and Fluff throwing each other around the screen and even combining to form ludicrous gestalt tanks that fire rockets and big fists. 

One thing that I really must emphasize is just how gorgeous this game looks. I'm not even going to say it looks good "for a Wii game." It looks good, period. The wonderfully bouncy animations, the effects of the scenery being ruffled and pulled, and the beautiful bright colors make this a complete visual treat. 

This game is simply lovely. Fun and varied gameplay, adorable characters, and surprisingly appealing graphics makes this a definite Nintendo game to watch. I have a feeling it's going to make gamers of all ages smile.

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...more

You won't believe these Kirby pics that Dtoid drew, they will blow your mind and restore your faith in humanity

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.more
