The Kirby Patch Set, which features Kirby’s Epic Yarn variant of Kirby and Prince Fluff, can be redeemed from the North American Club Nintendo for half the coins until the end of the week. Members who choose to claim the reward by September 15th only have to use 175 of their coins, rather than spending the normal 350.
The other Kirby-related Club Nintendo reward, Limited Edition Kirby Medal, is currently sold out as there were only 1,000 of them available.
Best Buy is offering Fling Smash and Kirby’s Epic Yarn for an incredible $7.99 each. Fling Smash comes with Wii Remote Plus, which is the standard Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus built-in. FlingSmash only appears to be available in store for $7.99, but you can order Kirby’s Epic Yarn for $7.99 from the website.

The lavish visuals that adorn Kirby’s Epic Yarn could well make their way into the Mario series according to Takashi Ikegami, a composer for HAL Laboratory.
“When I first saw them, I thought they were perfect for Kirby. I think there’s a lot of potential for expanding this style to other series, like making a game called Mario’s Epic Yarn. That’s how well I thought the foundation had been laid, so I was really happy that from among all the characters available it was Kirby who was chosen.”
