Do you remember Kirby: Canvas Curse? This was a Nintendo DS title that launched all the way back in 2005. It was arguably one of the best early uses of dual screen gaming, at least in my book.
Kirby would perpetually move forward. You’d guide him around obstacles by drawing a path for him to ride on the bottom screen. It was fun, addictive and borderline magical.
10 years later, and we’re getting a sequel. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was unveiled by Nintendo at E3 this week. Eric had a chance to go hands-on with the game (a piece he’s currently drafting up, I imagine), and we just grabbed a pile of pics and video for the title.
Unless you didn’t notice, it appears the world in this game is made out of clay. It looks awesome, and Eric says it looks even better in person. I’m already excited to read his hands on coverage.
Like so many other games announced and shown off at E3, don’t expect to see Kirby and the Rainbow Curse until 2015. When it shows up, the first thing I’m gonna wonder is how well it plays on the television. Will I be staring at the GamePad the entire time during play?
We’ll find out, I suppose.
