Kirbys Extra Epic Yarn Review
Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn may be a bit forging for die-hard platforming fans, but it still manages to offer a fun adventure for gamers of all ages. While minor control issues hold that game back from the greatness typically associated with Nintendo platformers, its more laid back approach and focus on straight-forward fun is the perfect entry point for those new to the genre.
Some nine years ago, Nintendo’s then-dominant console - the Wii - was graced with the original version of Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Nearly a decade later, the once-dominant but now waning 3DS is lucky enough to be the platform of choice for this once-great game’s reappearance, for reasons that will no doubt bewilder fans of the much-higher-flying Switch console.
If you’re not familiar with the game, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn sees Nintendo mascot Kirby adventuring in a parallel universe where everything is made out of yarn. Kirby himself transforms into a short loop of pink thread and must then go about his regular shenanigans in a world that itself could masquerade quite handily as a quilt.
