Kirby Wii? Actually happening?

What madness is this?

Pink, fluffy madness

This is all I know of the game: this trailer that dropped today. All I know is that I like what I see.

Do take this with a grain of salt though; we all remember what happened the last time we got a promising trailer for a usual-style Kirby platformer for the Wii.

    Kirby's awesome but I was hoping for a Yoshi game for Nintendo's annual 2D platformer offering. They did two last year so maybe there's still a chance.

    Man, I hope so. I've been waiting for a new Kirby game that doesn't suck, and isn't "Prince Fluff and the Kirby tie-in" ever since they cancelled the GC game.

    HAL has to do something with its Kirby 64 ideas and since Epic Yarn sold more than a million copies, this year is as good as any to release it.

    Agreed. I like Kirby in general but 64 was pretty awesome.

    Really? My friend bought it and I watched him beat it in an afternoon. He was really pissed at how short it was. Although generally there is more to do than simply beating the game once.

    EDIT: I do remember it being pretty cool while it lasted, with a colossal amount of abilities to use.

    A return to form, the Kirby we know and love, after the unbelievable (though very pretty) borefest that was Epic Yarn

    Come to think of it, couldn't this just as easily be a 3DS game? It would make more sense since they *just* came out with a Wii one.

    Edit: Then again, I suppose they'd put the HUD stuff on the lower screen if that were the case.

    Hell, if that's ALL they gotta do, that's hardly a hurdle to put it on the 3DS. I gotta say, more than a few of those Kirby super moves would be quite stunning in 3D, and that super-big mook he beat up into little mooks also has a certain shine to it that strongly suggests how striking this would be in 3D.

    Not that the 3DS has any shortage of stuff in development or anything.

    Just by the look of it, I would have pegged it more as a DS game. But we also have no idea how it'll control, so

    If I remember correctly there is a point where the game "ends" but it actually doesn't, and there are more levels.

    Could have imagined it thought.

    I'm sort of crossing my fingers that this one doesn't have the animal companions. I don't know what it is, but I tend to not like the Kirby games that use them. I dunno, it feels like cheating - like they throw in some cute animals to hide the fact that the design is not as good as previous games :P

    It's probably all in my head, I just am not a big fan of Dreamland 2 & 3 :P I should probably check out some of the others (never played Kirby 64 or some of the GBA ones)

    Not really. The old one has a lot of characters and Smash-style combat, but doesn't look like a real platformer along the lines of Dreamland et al.

    The new one shows off way more environmental hazards, block manipulation, moving platforms, slopes etc. It looks like a true Kirby game and not just a retread of Brawl Adventure Mode like the other one.

    The best Kirby is still Kirby's Adventure on NES.

    Basically all I'm asking for is that exact game again with updated hand drawn graphics.

    There is a new one coming for the DS as well. The fourth DS title, after Canvas Curse, Squeak Squad and SS Ultra.
