Edge: When Kirby snacks on a magical tomato in Epic Yarn’s saccharine opening sequence, the ensuing transformation from pink balloon to piece of twisty wool isn’t just visual. Granted, he keeps the ability to morph into a ground-pounding block with a tap of down on the D-pad, but that extended floaty jump of his? Gone. As is his ability to gobble up enemies and hijack their abilities. And yet he still feels like Kirby. It’s partly because his new woollen whip works a lot like the vacuum breath he had before, ensuring that enemies within range can be snatched up and flung back at their comrades. But it’s also because the most important aspect of Kirby’s powers remains – the sheer superiority of them.
