Nintendo has announced that Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, the enhanced version of the acclaimed Kirby’s Epic Yarn that was originally released for Nintendo Wii, will launch for Nintendo 3DS on the 8th of March.
In Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, Kirby is transported into a world made of cloth and yarn to unravel enemies, unzip secret passageways and transform into powerful vehicles. Every stage in the original Wii version is stitched in, but this Nintendo 3DS version has some new features, like Ravel Abilities that power up Kirby in fun ways, new mini-games featuring familiar faces King Dedede and Meta Knight, new furniture to personalize and decorate Kirby’s Pad, and a new Devilish mode that adds an extra layer of challenge to each stage.
Some of the Ravel Abilities include a giant yarn ball used to attack enemies, a wire sword that can slice through anything and the Nylon ability, which can generate wind for jumping higher and collecting beads.
Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn will also feature new amiibo functionality for compatible Kirby series amiibo figures that gives Kirby hats and abilities based on the figure used.
