Everyone’s favorite pink hero is making another appearance on Nintendo’s still productive handheld system, when Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn hits the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on March 8th, 2019.
In a tweet released by Nintendo of America’s official account, the company announced that the hit Wii game is getting a new lease on life on the company’s long term handheld system. Extra Epic Yarn‘s eShop page offers some more info, stating that every stage in the original Wii version is available, along with new features like the ability to craft bigger balls, summon bead-collecting wind and play two new modes featuring familiar faces King Dedede and Meta Knight.
The original iteration, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, released on the Nintendo Wii in October 2010 to positive reviews, averaging a 86/100 on MetaCritic. From the game’s description: players control Kirby, who has been transformed into yarn and sent to a new world, Patch Land, made entirely out of fabric. Kirby must help Prince Fluff by collecting seven pieces of magic yarn that are used to stitch Patch Land together in order to stop the dastardly Yin Yarn.
The announcement comes on the heels of multiple Nintendo updates this evening, including Yoshi’s Crafted World receiving a March 29th, 2019 release date.
