All Articles: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse brings its claymation-styled side-scrolling to the Wii U eShop this week… tomorrow to be exact. The pink puffball (Can clay be puffy? Probably a question for another time…) is joined by Axelay, a Super NES shooter that is now available through the Wii U’s Virtual Console service.
Over on the 3DS eShop, the free-to-play puzzler Pokemon Shuffle is available today along with the Flappy Bird homage Flap Flap and a pair of RPGs: Excave and Adventure Bar Story (and yes, it’s about saving a local bar from a greedy businessman).
Finally, the DSiWare Shop makes a return with a brand new pair of match-3 puzzlers: Fishdom and 4 Elements,
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Do you believe that a secret cabal of soldiers guards the citizenry from an encroaching force of half-human/half-beastly hybrids? And do you believe that these men and women are the only thing standing between the total collapse of society and these so-called werewolves? You do? Great! Because Ready At Dawn and Sony Santa Monica will release The Order: 1886 for the PS4 this week.
It’ll be joined on store shelves by the more colorful Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for the Wii U (no werewolves in that one) and the more vicious Total War: Attila on the PC (the strategy game from Creative Assembly stars one of the most feared warlords of the ancient world).
This video for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was so cute I nearly vomited rainbows out of my eyes. I have to be honest – I much prefer the Japanese title, which is Touch! Kirby Super Rainbow. So much more exciting!
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will be out in North America for Wii U on February 13. Look also for me to cave and get a Wii U around that date.
Can’t get enough Kirby? You won’t have to wait long before you get a play to play the next game in the series. Nintendo has confirmed that Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will be released in February 2015 and that it’ll feature a four-player multiplayer mode:
The newest game in the charming Kirby series finds the lovable pink puffball journeying through a world made of clay. Players guide Kirby along a rainbow line drawn on the Wii U GamePad controller’s touch screen. A new four-player multiplayer mode lets one player play as Kirby and focus on drawing rainbow lines on the GamePad, while the others control a trio of Waddle Dee characters that can collect items or carry Kirby around.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is exclusively in development for the Wii U at HAL Labratory.
Kirby’s at it again in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In the lovely E3 2014 trailer, everyone’s favorite Kirby moves around a world that looks like it’s claymation. The player can use the GamePad to draw rainbows, which Kirby can roll around on. And, of course, he turns into things like submarines, because he is Kirby, and that is how he rolls.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will be out in 2015 on the Wii U.
