NintenDaan has managed to secure himself a Japanese copy of the long-awaited Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for the Wii U. As you can see from the adorable video, the game has a lovely clay animation look that suits the franchise rather well. Those of us outside of Japan will have to wait for the game to come to the west. It’s arriving in the United States first on February 20th and Europe sometime shortly after. Be sure to give it a watch.
Can’t get enough of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse? Well, here’s plenty of new gameplay footage courtesy of Nintendomination. The game is out in a couple of months in the United States and has snuck up on us rather quickly. In case you missed it we posted the Japanese overview trailer for the game last night which you can view, right here.
Nintendo has released the Japanese introduction trailer for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. The extended promo showcases how gameplay is executed via the Wii U GamePad, which allows players to draw rainbow ropes to help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat bosses. The touch-screen controller can also be used to make loops and launch Kirby into the air or stop up waterfalls that get in his way. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse launches in Japan on January 22nd and in North America on February 13th.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse might have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $40. This is based on the game’s listing on the Canadian branches of Amazon and EB Games, both of which suggest it will be a budget-priced title. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse has players guiding Kirby along a rainbow line drawn on the Wii U GamePad’s touch screen through a world made of clay. It is scheduled to launch in February for Wii U.
It’s time for some box-art and this time we’ve got the Kirby and the Rainbow Curse North American box-art. The artwork retains the lovely unique clay look of the game which fully utilises the Wii U GamePad. Fans of angry Kirby will be disappointed as this time around the box-art features a happy Kirby figure. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is heading to the US on February 13th.
Online gaming publication IGN managed to get some hands-on time with Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for Wii U at this year’s Gamescom event.
