Kirby Wii announced

Epic Yarn out this autumn

Nintendo's announced a new Kirby game for Wii, Epic Yarn.

Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai is involved and the new game is certainly visually pleasing, appearing in the form of a sidescrolling platforming in which the world - and characters - are made of Yarn.

The footage showed Kirby's different stringy abilities and the various methods that can be used to get around the world.

Unzipping the walls of a building, for example, so that it flopped to the ground and opened up a new pathway was very cute.
