Product Description


From the Manufacturer

You can guide Kirby through a vibrant claymation world!

You can guide Kirby through a vibrant claymation world by drawing Rainbow Ropes for him to roll along in this all-new adventure! You can even mold your clay self into a Tank, Submarine, or Rocket to wreak havoc. Up to 3 friends can join in to explore levels with you.*

You can use the stylus creatively and tactically when drawing Rainbow Ropes to help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat bosses. Make loops, launch Kirby into the air or stop up waterfalls that get in his way. If a stage gets too challenging for any one Kirby to handle, call in some Waddle Dee allies for backup. Players can easily drop in and out of the main game at any time. So when things get tricky, one of the Waddle Dee players can carry Kirby to the goal while the other players collect items and stars. Need even more firepower? Tap the Kirby, King Dedede, or Meta Knight amiibo to the Wii U GamePad daily to give Kirby fantastic power-ups.

*Additional accessories required for multiplayer mode; sold separately.


Creative levels filled with hidden items and collectibles


Transform Kirby into a variety of clay objects: a Tank, a Submarine, or a Rocket!


Up to 3 other players* can easily drop in and out of the main game at any time

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking The Mold February 22, 2015
By Elias
I always feel bad for reviewing Kirby games. Not because they're not fun to play, or because I don't like them. Quite the opposite, actually. As a whole, I love the franchise for all of its various entries and incarnations, almost to a fault. That is to say, there isn't a single entry in the series that I dislike, and so, I feel bad, because anybody reading a review will immediately see my subjective bias towards the cute, cuddly and inventive worlds that various developers always seem to cook up. This time, HAL Laboratory picks the reins back up and takes the series back to the gameplay of 2005's "Canvas Curse," but also brings two new things to the table: claymation and GamePad-snapping difficulty.

You read that last part right. "Kirby & The Rainbow Curse," the pink puff's first go at a Wii U title, steers the series in a completely unexpected direction. Historically, the Kirby games have been satisfying little romps that are none too difficult to complete, unless one is trying to 100% the title. Usually, players are able to set their own difficulty, go at their own pace, and play how they want to play. If you're expecting more of that here, you're out of luck, buddy. "Rainbow Curse" has a very specific way it wants you to play, and if you don't play by its rules, be prepared to send Kirby careening into chasms, spikes and to a multitude of other grisly ends.

Well, grisly to an extent. It's still a Kirby title, meaning that everything is adorable, right down to the sugary sweet story. Kirby's world is attacked by Claymia, who sucks the color out of everything, meaning that the world is a colorless wasteland, and more important, the apple Kirby's about to dig into turns into a grey sphere. Heavy stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Type Of Platformer February 20, 2015
I spent the last couple of hours playing this game at the dorm room of my college friend and let me say that though I do not own a wii u myself, this is one of the games that make buying the console worth it. Here is my review of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and I will aim to be as unbiased as possible in retelling my experience of this game.

STORY: The plot is basically bare bones here but that is what you can really expect out of Nintendo games but they are basically the king of making absurd simple stories into incredibly fun games so no complaints here. Basically the story starts of with Kirby goofing off and a hole in the sky appears and rids dreamland of all its color creating a black and white world and everyone else is frozen in place. It is up to Kirby to bring color into dream land again and beat the evil force who had taken away all the color. Basically the plot sets into motion how the rest of the game plays out so let's get into the game already.

GAMEPLAY: The basics of the game is that it is a 2D platformer but instead of actually controlling Kirby, you use the stylus to make rainbow strings to move Kirby along the level. This time of gameplay is both unique and creative and you don't really get to see these types of manipulation on other games that do not have a stylus input. The rainbow strings allow for you to not only manipulate Kirby, but the world around Kirby as well allowing for even more creative gameplay.

The levels themselves were different and allowed for one to think creatively on how to get past certain obstacles and take down certain enemies. Some parts were exceptionally hard so this game is definitely not for children but more for adults who are seeking a platforming challenge.

Verified Purchase
First and foremost it's important to note that this game requires the stylus to play. About 95% of the negative reviews this game receives is because people purchase this game without knowing that (despite the fact that it's advertised everywhere) and they get upset when they realize it does not use traditional controls. If the idea of using the stylus to draw lines on the game pad to control Kirby does not appeal to you then turn away now.

Personally I think it's tons of fun once you get use to it. For completionist like myself the game will offer plenty of playtime as there is lots to collect and lots of challenges to complete. Collect stars and treasure chest in each level to unlock trophies, music and secret challenge levels which are really fun and addicting to play and add a new set of difficulty to the game. For people who don't care about collecting stuff and earning gold medals and would rather just get to the credits the game can be finished fairly quickly and perhaps a rental would be more suitable in that case.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Type Of Platformer March 3, 2015
Again Nintendo shows it power and talents with this game as they have with all their title games(Mario/Zelda/Donkey Kong) and the price is incredibly reasonable for this vastly entertaining game. While you can use the gamepad the game itself wants you to use the stylus as well so you use the functionality of the gamepad during gameplay. The graphics are cute but excitingly detailed and the music goes incredibly well with the game with a nice tempo to match the action. Co-Op works great in the game like with Mario of course having cohesion with other players depends on the players. So for any Wii U owner and Kirby fan this is a great addition to add to the Wii U game library today. Update 2-21-2015 Some have asked if you can control Kirby in the game or if you just use the stylus pen? and the answer is you use the stylus pen to draw rainbow lines for Kirby to progress through the levels. It does seem a little redundant to have your t.v. on as you'll be more viewing the gamepad screen to see where to draw the lines and such through out the game. Some people are somewhat understandable annoyed at this but the game demo and trailers show that's exactly how the game is played. So if you don't like using the stylus as your only means of gameplay then this game isn't going to be for you but if you can look passed this then you'll have an entertaining game to play on your Wii U.
