Make your very own clay Kirby

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]

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer

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?

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is fun, on sale on 3DS

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse recently launched on the Wii U eShop, and while I haven't played through the whole thing yet, I can attest to the consistently charming comedy in its first few hours or so. It's clear that the ...

Tri-Strip is another game that has a classic Game Boy look

Have you been itching for a monochrome style game outside of Joylancer? You can have your fill later this year with Tri-Strip, from developer Form Up Studios. It's a lot like Tetris, and involves manipulating triangles to remove them from the board. I dig the style but it's a bit too bright at the moment. As expected, Off-TV play is supported. There's no set release date yet for the game.

Duck Hunt amiibo files allegedly found on-disc for Smash Wii U

Splatoon came out of nowhere, and it shot into my most anticipated list of 2015. As an unconventional shooter it looks pretty great, and the constant morphing from human to squid looks like it has a lot of value on a tactical level. Although this trailer isn't new, Nintendo has uploaded another version of it that runs at 60fps, so give it a go!

Sonic and friends save a real life cat in this Sonic Boom commercial

Although I know it's not cool to like Sonic in just about every context, this new commercial for Sonic Boom is pretty cute. It basically involves Sonic and his crew rescuing a cat in real life in over-the-top fashion, which reminds me of the gloriously cheesy '90s commercials I grew up with. I'm half-expecting Crash Bandicoot to jump out and say "booyah grandma!" at any point.
