If you are thinking about purchasing Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush and you live in the United Kingdom then you might want to think about purchasing it from the official Nintendo store. If you pre-order the game then you’re entitled to a free adorable Kirby soft toy. The game and the free toy are £34.99.
An awesome glitch has been discovered which allows you to become Fire Kirby in Super Smash Bros on the Wii U. The fun glitch was discovered by YouTuber MasterOfHyrule. To get the glitch to work you will need to use the hammer and then let go of it as soon as you are being inhaled, then the fun can begin!

You can once again get the Kirby Triple Deluxe and Super Mario 3D World soundtracks on Club Nintendo Europe. They are highly sought after items so I’m not entirely sure how long they will be available for. The Super Mario 3D World soundtrack will set you back 3000 Stars and the Kirby Triple Deluxe soundtrack is 2000 Stars. Will you opt for these with your hard-earned Stars?
Nintendo has released the accolades trailer for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, which is available now for Wii U. The game finds players controlling Kirby by using the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad in a world made of clay. By drawing lines on the touch screen with the stylus, the player creates Rainbow Ropes that will help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat enemies. In addition, compatible amiibo can be used once a day per stage to power up Kirby with special abilities.
Nintendo of Europe will offer three new Kirby themes for your 3DS home menu screen later this week. Available on Friday, February 27, fans of the pink puffball can celebrate his unique style with three different themes; including Craft Paper Kirby, Kirby Sweet Gourmet Race and Smiling Kirby. As per, all of the backgrounds – which you can view above – are priced at €1.99 / £1.79 each. Though Europe has yet to take on Kirby’s latest adventure with the GamePad’s canvas and stylus in hand with Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, we’ll just have to wait patiently and celebrate with 3DS home themes instead.
US Reviews for Kirby’s latest clay inspired adventure have started to pop up on online review aggregator Metacritic. I know a few of you aren’t too keen on the site, but Nintendo seems to love it. Anyway, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse currently has a Metascore of 74 based on ten critics. It’s not a bad score, but it could be better. Here’s a sample of some of the reviews that are currently out there.
By its very nature, it feels more at home on a handheld. Just in this case, it’s a handheld system that’s tethered to your living room console.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse shines because it’s a simple game that delivers superbly on a simple concept. You’re repeating many of the same actions again and again, but with each new stroke it feels more refined, more graceful.
Nothing about the gameplay feels broken, it just feels soulless this time around.

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.
