Kirby's next Wii adventure will ditch the yarn

Nintendo's latest financial report has come with a gooey pink (and unfortunately, very blurry) surprise. Amidst its list of upcoming games, the Big N also revealed the first clip of a new Kirby adventure from Hal Laboratory with zero strings attached.

35 seconds is not a lot to work with, but as the clip shows, Kirby will be returning to his traditional look, albeit with some fancy sword action and arguably more powerful abilities added to the 2D mix.

Little else is mentioned of the game except a smattering of Japanese text which, when horribly mangled by Google's transcription service, reads, “for this story turns into Kirby's new smoking vomiting stationary game machines, Imashi to keep you waiting very long or.”

Vomiting stationary game machines!? Oh, think of everything.

    This honestly looks more fun than Epic Yarn.

    Looks like there are power up combinations like Kirby 64. And final smash-esque screen clearing attacks? Looks cool

    GOD I hope Dark Matter Returns, Those Bastards deserve to be beaten again after Raping our childhoods in Kirby's Dreamleand 3, and Kirby 64:Crystal Shards

    Yarn was a refreshing and laid back game, fortunately it was just an appetizer to this main course! (several puns intended)

    One thing I always did not like about Kriby games, they were always way to short, but fun
  • Crabhand - January 28, 2011 7:39 p.m.

    Makes sense, Epic Yarn wasn't originally even a Kirby game. I am excited for the vomiting stationary game machines.

    @theamazingmrpotato sorry, no. Near the 4/5 second mark you can see a wii remote telling you what button to press.

    This reminds me of Kirby 64. But I still need the wii games that came out last year.
  • crazyW01F - January 28, 2011 8:14 p.m.

    I've got chills. That looks amazing, keep on rolling Nintendo!
  • austinthebookworm - January 28, 2011 9:19 p.m.

    Kirby is a demented, evil, pink blob. Looks pretty cool, though.
  • QWERTYCommander - January 28, 2011 9:59 p.m.

    This looks a lot like this cancelled Gamecube Kirby game. youtube(.)com/watch?v=lSjRbufAlC4
  • CrazySmurf - January 28, 2011 10:57 p.m.

    This looks like old-school Kirby on crack. In a good way
  • RandomIdoit - January 28, 2011 11:57 p.m.

    new ability! whip new ability! water ...dang, I guess I owe my little brother $5. he said that there was going to be a water ability, and I said that would never happen. I guess I was wrong.
