Kirby And The Rainbow Curse Mixes Claymation And Touch Control For Wii U

Kirby: Canvas Curse for the original Nintendo DS is both one of the more innovative games for the DS and one of the best Kirby games in the entire series. When it launched back in 2005, the Nintendo DS had not yet exploded into one of the best selling consoles of all time so you could be forgiven for not remembering this DS gem. The game has actually become more remembered for its advertising campaign which humorously featured Kirby walking around with a large finger that looked like a giant dick. Regardless of its legacy, the game mechanics worked so well that it is surprising that Nintendo never revisited the game.

I'm happy to report that Nintendo didn't forget about this brilliant game and is in fact releasing a new game in the series titled Kirby and the Rainbow Curse exclusively for the Wii U. Making excellent use of the touch screen, you will be tasked with navigating the little pink ball (Kirby) through a variety of challenging levels (it's a simple control scheme but incredibly rewarding). Nintendo has even mixed things up graphically with a gorgeous new art style that features claymation. If you haven't played the original DS title, I urge you to get a copy (it's playable on the 3DS) and prepare for this innovative new Kirby adventure. Enjoy!
