Hallelujah! They've got rid of the gimmicky touch-screen control. Touch Kirby was the worst Kirby game I've played (sorry Mike!)...really didn't like it. This looks back to the norm, though, so hurrah! Smilie

Whaaat?! You're mad, Kirby: Canvas Curse (I refuse to call it Power Paintbrush) was great fun! It just needed more proper bosses and to be a bit longer, that was its main shortcoming.

This, however, has me excited as well. I'm not quite sure how the mixing system will work, but we all know damn well I'll be buying it. It's Kirby, dammit!

wow that looks impresive!! and really fun game!!
there is too much information and too little time.........

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

This is definately looking like a game that will sit snugly in the back of my DS for a whil. Love the idea of the mixing system and how Kirbys powers will affect the envirnoment.

Oh god yes!! ;_; Combining the powers comes back from Kirby 64!! That was awesome! Was that a bear power I saw? And HOLY CRAP the Ninja power!!! *orgasms* Aaah... Man I still need to get a bloody job...

My GOD Jesusraz are you absolutely INSANE!?!?!?!!? Canvas Curse was AMAZING!!! It got more than Hunters (in most places) for God's sake... I really hope they make another one, though I'm gald they've returned to the classic Kirby formula too... they're both just so perfect ;_; The only thing Cavas Curse needed was more powers...

Back to the original Kirby!! Wish it's longer this time though...I quite liked the touch screen control but playing the old fashioned way is way more funSmilie

That looks fun, and I wish it is longer than usual Kirby games.
I really enjoyed the Power Paintbrush, but it seems a bit short (haven't cleared it yet though, on the 7th level).
Maybe I'll have to add this game to my list of games that has to be bought.

Games make people play.

Maybe I AM insane, but hey that's life...My favourite ever Kirby is The Amazing Mirror from the GBA, a game that many sites/mags knocked (~75%-80% maximum scores, me I gave it something like 9.8/10 at the time, down to 9/10 with our new system, though).

And guess why I'm so excited by this new Kirby? Well, you know the Capcom subsidiary company that worked on the Zelda Oracles, plus Minish Cap, Flagship? Well that company did Amazing Mirror and are doing this new Kirby as well!

Sales +1 definitely! Smilie

WHAT!? I know the new NOM gave Nightmare in Dremland (WORST KIRBY GAME EVER) a better score than Amazing Mirror, but at least they still have Mirror an awesome score! how the hell could it get less than a 90 in anyone's eyes!? ... Yeah it's probably the only GBA game I've ever bothered to play twice... And get 100% both times... I loved Mirror Smilie

Canvas Curse was annoying, decent game i'd give it a 7 but having not bought a Kirby game since Kirbys dreamland I was expecting amazing gameplay. I'll be picking this up as Canvas curse just did not cut it for the kirby experiance i was looking for.
