New Kirby in development for Wii 29 January 2011
Nintendo has posted a small video of a new 2D Kirby game in development for Wii. Following the idiosyncratic Kirby's Epic Yarn, this new one looks graphically- and possibly gameplay-wise in line with more traditional entries in the series, bearing some resemblance to the cancelled GameCube game Kirby's Adventure, and of course the Nintendo 64 title Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Hopefully it plays with a little more urgency than that one, even though I did quite enjoy it.
HAL Laboratory are to head up development duties again: other than that I'm not really sure what else there is to know right now. Looks nice though, so taking a gander at the trailer is probably a good start.
