There's a new Kirby game coming to the Wii. And this time, it's far more epic than yarn. Tucked inside Nintendo's quarterly report is mention of a new Kirby sequel, developed by series originator HAL Laboratory.
what are nintendo playing at? we just had a new kirby game. for fuck sake, at least give us a franchise that hasn't already been bled to death... like f zero!
We havnt had a traditional console kirby in years. Im glad this is coming.
kirby epic yarn hasn't even been released in uk yet, and i want to get that. yarn looks brilliant... but another kirby game? why not put the energy into something new? like pikmin.. kirby already has a critically acclaimed game on the wii, no wonder people criticise nintendo for milking their franchises.
What makes you think just one team is working on games? Pikmin team is NOT the same team as the Kirby team and so forth. The R&D team is also looking for new types of gameplay. There goes billions into R&D, its not money they want to be putting to waste. And how is it milking if both these Kirby games [play] differently.
"we just had a new kirby game"
Epic Yarn was not a Kirby game. It was a completely unrelated platformer that Nintendo put Kirby in for brand cred.
Also, this game was in development first.
hell yeah, it's from HAL (Kirby, Super Smash Bros.) .....that is all I need to really say. :)
I wish they would make another Smash Bros instead... I would take a new one of those any day. Maybe a Wii2 launch title... I can dream...
i really dont rate hal. smash brothers gets on my nerves. im playing it now... its a bit boring
HAL is best developer nintendo has IMO, glad to see they came out from under their rock.
I really liked the art-style of Epic Yarn, but this looks great.
no doubt..and it is a big hit with nintendo just announced 1.4m for Yarn in 2 months.
Kirby is one of my favorites. I can't wait to play it.
this game looks great but shouldn't we wait for the next generation kirby
why? Cause next generation kirby is bound to be made right?
epic yarn wasn't a REAL kirby title for me. irby superstar is still the BEST kirby ever made. Kirby 64 wasn't bad too and the nes version is a classic. Just hope that they bring back helper, with 4 player coop, 1 kirby and 3 helper and kirby 64 like graphics. Just like the gamecube kirby game that was suppose to come out in the past.check the link: http://www.youtube.com/watc... that is epic!
Did you play Kirby's Adventure (NES)? Cause that one is the best one for me.
yeah! I still got the original on my nes. I own all kirby games there is, but yeah, kirby's adventure is THE first game of the series, but I liked the helper feature in superstar and the multiple storys in it.
i am not sure this is for the wii, why would they make 2 kirby games on such a short time span? i would understand if it is for the 3DS, that would make sense...
the one thing id like in future kirby is to make them challenging. Thats the one thing i disliked about epic yarn.
