Nintendo announced Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for Wii U during its E3 Digital Event this morning.
Due out in 2015, the touch platformer is set in a stop-motion clay-like world, where everything is made from clay and placed perfectly on the landscape. The game builds on the touch-screen drawing mechanics of the fan-favorite DS game Kirby’s Canvas Curse.
Find the debut trailer and details below. View some screenshots at the gallery.
Kirby Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before
Do you have the magic touch? Then guide Kirby as he sets off on grand adventures in a hand-sculpted clay world. Draw lines on the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller to create rainbow-colored clay ropes to move Kirby around freely, or tap him to attack enemies or blast through obstacles. Transformations include a submarine, rocket and tank. In underwater levels, Kirby dons a swim mask. If his power level gets too low, a clay bandage appears on his head.
Kirby comes to life in a world of clay, which creates a beautiful backdrop for Kirby’s adventure.
You take control of Kirby with the stroke of a stylus and draw on the GamePad touch screen to guide Kirby through the world.
Use the GamePad to control Kirby’s many transformations in unique new ways.
The intuitive drawing mechanic is a spiritual successor to Kirby: Canvas Cursefor Nintendo DS that builds on the game play and takes it in a new direction.
