Just like they did for Kirby Star Allies, HAL Laboratory started sharing various details and pictures for Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn on the official Twitter account of the Kirby series, in Japan.
You will find all those details, pictures, videos, etc. in a single post (the one you’re currently reading!), which will be updated regularly as more is shared on the Twitter account, and up until the game is released on March 7th in Japan / March 8th in Europe and North America. Don’t forget to check out this post some gameplay footage!
Since the world of Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn is entirely made of wool, the levels are filled with various cloth-related gimmicks. For example, you can hang on buttons or open zippers to open new paths (either the main one, or a secret one). There’s many ways to interact with wool in the game!
Prince Fluff is the prince of Patch Land, a place where (nearly) every single thing is made of cloth and wool. When Kirby ends up sucked in that mysterious place, he also ends up made of wool… though that does not really seem to bother him all that much! Being made of wool allows Kirby to use various wool-related techniques. For example, he can literally unravel enemies, and turn them into ball of yarn (that ball can then be thrown at other enemies to defeat them).
Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn (3DS) comes out on March 7th in Japan, and March 8th in Europe and North America.
