New Kirby Game coming to Wii

Revealed during yesterday's Nintendo investor meeting in Japan, there's a new Kirby game headed to the Nintendo Wii, and this time around the pink puffball is a bit more substantial than he was in Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Another Kirby game due out in Japan a little over a year since the last? The strong critical and fan reaction to last year's Kirby's Epic Yarn must have really proved the power of the pink to someone at Nintendo.

The new, currently unnamed game looks to be a return to Kirby's classic side-scrolling, super power-sucking ways, which should surely please fans that were happy with Epic Yarn but felt it didn't capture the true essence of a traditional Kirby game.

looks like Kirby is back to his roots! 8)

Saw this earlier today. Sounds like it answers my only minor concerns with Epic Yarn (being that it was a pretty different take on the series after waiting so long.)

Guess I get to have my cake and eat it too now.

Lets hope they pull it off correctly this time around. The last game was definitely not for me.

The last game wasn't originally going to be a kirby game anyhow, so I don't think you can anticipate this one based on your experiences with the last one at all.

My kids loved Epic Yarn but I agree with others that it's not a game for me.

Sounds cool, hopefully the Wii drops to an even lower price everywhere by then so I can have it at college.

That's why I said "to an even lower price", not "to a low price". :lol:

Yes! I've been hesitant to pick up Epic Yarn amd now that this has been announced, I can buy epic yarn cheap. I also had a feeling a power obtaining Kirby game was to be released, since there's 3 Kirby games on the DS and 1 on Wii atm.

I wonder if this is that other Kirby game that we'd been hearing murmurs about that supposedly got cancelled?

Did Epic Yarn help de-cancel it?
