We're convinced that the folks making games at Nintendo require their employees to brainstorm while absolutely blazed. An Italian plumber that hops on enemies? A elf-like swordsman that fights magic wizards? A pink puff that fights evil inside of a magic sock? Whatever. We wouldn't have it any other way. Kirby's Epic Yarn continues Kirby's awesomeness on consoles, even if we had to learn way more than we wanted to know about sewing.
FUN FACT: This was the first Kirby platform game for a home console since 2000's Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
