Behold: Nintendo's custom Epic Yarn room

Ever wonder what a Nintendo demo room looks like? Well, they usually aren't covered in game-specific decorations, but my most recent trip down to Nintendo HQ was brightened up by a surprise makeover that literally blanketed the drab office walls with decorations inspired by Kirby's Epic Yarn.

There were even scenes from the game recreated in fabric and placed in a picture frame, all courtesy of the arists at I Am 8-bit. Have a look!

Above: Intense concentration

Earlier today we put up a new trailer for Epic Yarn, plus there was a recent hands-on as well. Expect the review in the next couple weeks too. More as it comes in!

    @public If by keroppi you mean Minish Cap and by hipster you mean Brett, then yes? (note: this is brett, somehow signed in to Carolyn's account!)

    If my room looked like that I would cry of happiness each time I wake up and see it.

    Rad room... Is that a keroppi tattoo on that hipster?
  • ZiegZeon - October 5, 2010 4:21 a.m.

    damn, I want that room.
  • Ginshi29 - October 5, 2010 4:18 a.m.

    wow, that really is epic.
  • TruckThunders - October 5, 2010 3:44 a.m.

    Very cute room. Kudos to Nintendo for really setting a theme just for a demo. But I hope not every developer starts doing this. Would you really want to play a demo for Gears of War 3 with constant chainsaws going off and the Cole-Train yelling in your ear? All while sitting in a large dusty gray room full of human ash figures.

    You were right on the money with your premonition on TR, Brett. "WHY IS EVERYTHING MADE OF PANTS???"
  • TeslaVonMagnus - October 5, 2010 2:36 a.m.

    That is SUCH a cool room!! :D
  • Strangleme - October 5, 2010 2:06 a.m.

    Wow Brett. I am so fucking jealous of you right now. That room looks so awesome.
