Nintendo certainly surprised us with the announcement of several sequels to their most popular franchises this year at E3. One of the most exciting (and adorable) games they introduced to us at their press conference on Tuesday was Kirby’s Epic Yarn, the first Kirby game in 7 years that is on its way to the Wii.
I could not contain my excitement as Nintendo announced this new game, which features a cloth textured art-style, as well as a yarn-like Kirby turning into objects like a car, a balloon, and a UFO. The coolest thing about the cloth look to the game is the way that Kirby seems to interact with the environment. At one point during the game trailer, Kirby started ripping into the stitching of a building using a whip, folding it over and revealing an entirely new area inside.
Not only is Kirby’s Epic Yarn a highly anticipated sequel to one of Nintendo’s most beloved franchises, but it also looks like a beautifully designed game with some unique gameplay in store for its players. Kirby’s Epic Yarn will be available sometime this fall for the Nintendo Wii. You can watch a gameplay trailer for the game after the jump.
