Disclosure: I attended an event for Nintendo and received a copy of the game for review. This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.
This past weekend we took the kids to the Nintendo Store in Rockefeller Center in NYC. There was an epic event where we were introduced to Kirby and his latest game for Nintendo 3DS- Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. We aren’t new to the concept of Kirby and his adventures, but in Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, even the youngest Nintendo players in your household will be able to play. There are different game play options – normal and devilish mode. In normal mode, you have simple gameplay without any “bad guys” hurting you.
When I first heard the title of this game, I thought for sure it would be identical to Yoshi’s Wooly World. I was wrong in that the game play is completely different and much simpler, although the concept of yard, ball making, and tossing, are the only similarities between Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn and Yoshi’s Wooly World.
Kirby interacts with the world around him by using his yarn as a lasso. With that he can uncover surprises and beat enemies. He can transform into different things like vehicles and objects to help him through each level.
So far, Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn has kept my attention and makes us all want to see what happens next, keeping the family entertained for quite some time. Unfortunately we all have to take turns when playing this game, but there are different slots for saving so each player can track their own progress.
