Will post the video snap shot when I have a chance/someone else cuts it out of the long DS Video. Looks to play a bit like Canvas Curse, with it being stylus only.

Has Tentative 2011 date.

Looks interesting. Kinda weird it was announced for the DS though. I thought for sure Nintendo would be totally finished with the device by now.

Yeah, DS seems odd, but maybe it will be part of a line up of potential 3DS enhanced games? Would be the best bet for maximum sales.

Oh yeah, HAL is making this one.

This was the best thing they announced today. It's all about the games. Also, stylus control for a billion Kirbies? The action takes place on the bottom screen. Will buy.

Is this like Lemmings but with Kirby?
Doesn't really look like the Kirby clones have different abilities. Looks like a cross between Canvas Curse and Pikmin maybe?

Either way, can't wait to get my hands on it. Why is Kirby becoming the star of Nintendo conferences?

Kirby Canvass Curse-ish touch controlled Kirby action? Looks great! Lots of Kirbies, awesome... :)

Yeah, just ignore all of the tens of millions of people who have DSes all at once, great idea... I think it makes sense to make a few more DS games. The Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and GBA all had support continuing after the releases of their successors, after all.

The 3DS isn't cheap, they can't expect everyone to get one day one.

It is interesting timing, and yeah I'm not expecting first party DS support to last too long after the 3DS releases (the DS will be over six years old by the time the 3DS comes out after all, while the GBA was barely 3 1/2 years old when replaced), but it's nice to see something, particularly something as potentially fun as this. :)

A very good point. It seems that Nintendo is angling to have two different products. The higher-end for the core and early-adopters and the regular DS for the kids, as well as the parents who still bought GBA SPs when the DS came out.

Please, please, PLEASE go play it.
Seriously. Pick it up used. And this game looks like a different experience, so you won't be spoiling the new DS Kirby.

Someone said a successor to Canvas Curse was announced, so I came to see. That isn't really what this looks like at all... but I hope it's good.

Not one, but TWO Kirby games in a short span?

What have we done to be so blessed as such?! :D :D

Oh hey, this is a nice surprise

I'd like to see a video so I know how it actually plays, though. I'm certainly intrigued.

There's one for the DS games trailer, but it shows very little.

I am so behind on Kirby releases... haven't played Canvas Curse, The Amazing Mirror, Squeak Squad or the re-release/remake of Super Star. And now there's Epic Yarn and this to worry about.

My bank account = :-_(

As long as it's not made by Flagship, then I'm ready for more Kirby.
1) Flagship is dead. Squeak Squad was their last game before being shut down by Nintendo/Capcom (And the fact they were being shut down is likely part of the reason why it was so poor)
2) The press site those pictures are on has copyright info for just HAL (And Nintendo), unlike Epic Yarn which has it for both the IP holders and Good Feel.

All signs point to HAL, though I still want to know when they are going to make a normal Kirby game. Its been a damn decade since HAL made a new normal Kirby Platformer. They have had two spin offs, and two remakes, and this will be their 3rd spin off, since Kirby 64 came out.

People started complaining there was no Kirby. Same thing happened with Kid Icarus and Mario platformers.

What the fuck does this statement even mean? It seems like what you're implying is that sequels can be spoiled by their prior entries?

If so, holy shit.

Seems HAL have serious troubles programing with 3D graphics :lol (I mean seriously, their last 3D game was Air Ride, and they had development problems with that).

I hope we can see something like the Kirby game they were doing for GC now for 3DS.

Kirby Army? Looks pretty interesting, I think Nintendo thinks Kirby is their experimental franchise where they can just test out any idea they think is remotely interesting.
This has been the case for a long while

That was me. I am going to continue my bitching till Kirby GCN shows up on the 3DS. Then I'll let them off the hook for a few years.

Holy Shit, a Canvas Curse sequel?

I never really into Kirby, but Canvas Curse is one of my favorite game of all time and still my #1 DS game. Such innovative game.
