Kirby's first console platform game since the Nintendo 64 days, Kirby's Epic Yarn introduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the gameplay and allows the ever-morphing Kirby to take on a variety of new forms. It's a one-of-a-kind platformer that lets players explore high and low for hidden objects, experience fun adventure and even join with a second player in a co-op play mode.

Kirby Offers a New Take on String Theory

Kirby's tendency for gobbling up items has set off another chain events. This time it has to do with an odd looking tomato-like object. Looking utterly delicious, down it goes. The problem is that it belongs to an evil wizard who reacts by sending Kirby to another dimension where everything, and everyone, even Kirby, are made of yarn. But that is a decision that the Wizard may yet regret, as Kirby joins forces with new friends in the strange land to unravel the plot of the wizard.

Like all Kirby games, Epic Yarn is a side-scrolling platformer, but gameplay is different in this adventure. In its gameworld, everything is made of yarn or fabric, including Kirby and the game levels themselves. Kirby is of course pursued by the minions of the evil wizard that sent him to the gameworld, but in this world Kirby does not swallow enemies to dispatch them. Instead he uses a whip of yarn to stun them. Curled into the shape of a yarn ball, he can then toss them at additional enemies and/or obstacles. Kirby's movements are different as well. He no longer floats the way he did in previous games. Instead he glides in parachute form, or takes the shape of vehicles such as a train, a top, a truck, a UFO, a tank and others that are appropriate for the challenge at hand. Throughout the gameplay area are hidden beads, that if maintained, maximize points. There are also hidden levels that are revealed as Kirby pulls on zippers and loose threads encountered. Standard level progression is achieved via a series of patches that players receive on completion of levels. These are added to a tapestry by Kirby which results in the next level being revealed. The game also features two-player co-op through the entire game in which the second player takes on the role of an additional character from the game and works together with Kirby to access new areas.

Key Game Features

  • Kirby's first home console platform game since the Nintendo 64.
  • Pulling on stray threads might reveal hidden areas. When Kirby literally goes behind the scenes, the virtual fabric warps and bends to show his location.
  • Thanks to his versatile yarn composition, Kirby can take on a variety of forms both in his common actions and when he transforms into powerful vehicles.
  • A co-op gameplay option allows two players can play through the entire game together.
  • Gems and collectible items are scattered throughout the environments for players to find.

Format: Video Game
I picked up my pre-ordered copy this morning and have spent all day playing it. It pleases me to report that Kirby's Epic Yarn not only breathes new life into the Kirby franchise but also marks a return to Nintendo's roots of stylish graphics combined with innovative game mechanics.

The game is very easy to control and players from ages six to ninety-six should have no problems learning how to play. You hold the Wii controller sideways so that the D-Pad is on the left and the 1 and 2 buttons are on the right. Button 2 controls Kirby's jumping and other movement functions such as turning into a parachute when falling. Button 1 is Kirby's action button and is used for attacking, latching on to various objects, throwing enemies and even shooting projectiles. The controls are very intuitive and responsive. You won't need to think about how Kirby moves and jumps, it really will come naturally to you.

As you most likely know, the graphics follow a fabric theme. After an unfortunate encounter with a sorcerer, Kirby loses his classic abilities and is transformed into a creature made of yarn. He finds himself in a strange kingdom called Patch World. The developers really ran with the fabric theme as the game looks like a big fluffy bed. Backgrounds are made of pieces of fabric. Buildings and other items are patches. You don't so much open a treasure chest as you pull it off of the fabric to reveal the treasure hiding underneath it. Kirby can also manipulate the environment around him. At one point you may be working your way up a tree and pull on a certain button which will cause the whole tree to collapse to a more manageable height.

The game also sounds great.

I have 4 children ranging from 5-12. We are all big fans of Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart. My only problem is that the younger set will cry and fight over little things like who gets the fire flower. Also, the younger one will get left behind on Super Mario, which results in him losing his life. These things cause major tantrums. Not a fault of the games, I know that. The older kids and adults obviously don't have these problems;-) However, Kirby's Epic Yarn solves all these skirmishes with the little guys. No one is left behind or dies. Finally, they can play by themselves without a referee! For this reason, I give it 5 stars!!

I love video games. I work in the video game industry. So with those two caveats out the door, and regardless of if you believe either (not my problem) I will give the short and sweet things that make this title fantastic.

The emotion it breeds in you is one of comfort and genuine happiness. Titles like this are exemplars of how games can be a fantastic artistic medium (and I'm not saying that just because it is cute, Bioshock is a fine example on the uglier end).

The story is told in a great children's book manner.
The characters are incredibly approachable even though they are all made of a few strands of string.
The levels of creative in ways that is often not seen outside of the indie scene.
The storyline is simple and yet you still want to see how it ends.
The gameplay is easy but still engaging enough to keep you playing from end to end, the level of stress this game produces is freakishly low.

If you play this thing late at night it can quite literally put you to sleep. I'm not saying that as a negative, it's that perfectly bound up. It aims to create a "dreamworld" and leaves you unconscious with a wii controller in your lap.

I can be a cynic at times, some titles leave me utterly in awe at how terrible they are. I wonder if the developers had ever even played the title they developed.

But this...I can say with the utmost certainty that if you buy this, you will enjoy it, the odds of you not liking it are so fantastically slim that I would nearly bet money on it.

Nearly ;).

I'll start off by saying this: get this game. No matter what type of gamer you are, from casual to pro, even if you've never picked up a controller in your life, if you own a Wii, you must play this game. Think of it as classic Mario platforming action, amped up to next-gen quality and improved ten fold. Do not be fooled by the game's bright colors and childish look. At the bare minimum, Epic Yarn is an easy game, perfect for casual gamers and Kirby fans. But in order to hundred-percent it, you'll have to navigate your way through dozens of hilariously original platforming levels that test your brain and your finger agility as you slip past yarn monsters, over volcanoes, and even face off against a fire-breathing dragon, and all without losing your coins. You don't die in this game, you just lose coins, and in order to get a gold coin rating, you'll have to meet the required amount of coins. During the first couple of levels, this may seem like a walk in the park, but the game picks up very fast, and soon even the most experienced of gamers will be struggling to earn their share of coins once the level is through.
Kirby's Epic Yarn is a very fun game to rock through solo, but the local co-op is where it's at. You and a buddy can smash, throw, and hit each other to areas previously unaccessible when going through solo. You can overtake bosses and enemies like never before and even sacrifice your friend to save yourself. Of course, you're in this together. If your friend is hurt, you both lose from it. That's right, as you collect coins in co-op, they are added to a single counter, so you'll need to work together with the utmost cooperation in order to earn gold medals there.
