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.
Judging by old footage of Kirby GCN compared to my experience with Brawl, it seems like a lot of the elements from the cancelled GCN game showed up in Brawl.

Doesn't Amazing Mirror have something like that?
Not really. In Amazing Mirror, while there are 4 kirbys, 3 are controled by other players/the CPU. You can call them to help you with you cellphone though! Otherwise the CPU kirbys wonder around the world doing nothing useful their own thing, unless you can find 3 friends to play with.

On a tangent, Nightmare in Dreamland actually had a pretty robust multiplayer mode if you had 4 copies of the game, and the systems, and the cables...

Would anyone else be thrilled like fucking hell if Kirby Adventure which was headed to GC and possibly Wii ended up on 3DS?

The spiritual successor to 64 with the Melee (Brawl?) engine, how did that NOT own so fucking hard?!

Epic Yarn is an awesome alternative though, so we didn't really lose out in the end! :D

I like how the DS is now the "regular DS" just as the NES is the "regular nintendo"
you're welcome

xbox is "og xbox", but the ds isn't gangsta enough for that.

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.
The way I see it, Canvas Curse basically freed them from this obligation for a goodly long time. And if this game is as good or better... hot damn. They can never look back as far as I'm concerned.

So it's basically Kirby Roco? Er... Loco Kirby? I dunno. Loco Roco with Kirby is the general idea I'm getting at here.

I think you and I are the only ones.

Unless you're being sarcastic (likely), in which case I'm the only one. ;_;

Motion to begin referring to the regular-DS as the "regular-ass DS" on the grounds that it sounds funny.

YES. FINALLY, A KIRBY MADE BY HAL LABS.

This is the best announcement ever this year by FAR (excepting Armored Core 5). Finally Nintendo has given some free reign to HAL so they can make a fricken game. Awesome.

Tell me about it. Or what about just their games in general? I cannot tell how much it infuriates me to see HAL's games canceled time and time again. It's way too frequent and it shits me to the core. Kirby GCN was the last straw for me, I don't care that we're getting Epic Yarn (looks great don't get me wrong), I wanted what was announced and then eons later it gets canceled.

Kirby Air Ride 64, Kirby Tilt n Tumble 2, Earthbound 64, Battland, Luna Blaze and now Kirby GCN. Damn Nintendo, damn them to hell!!!
 
They should make the DS go out with a bang, which so far it looks like they are. Pokémon BW, Kirby, Golden Sun. :)

Also, that second Fire Emblem DS game still has to be released outside of Japan. So I think the DS will get maybe another year before Nintendo drops support of it.

HAL made the first Pokémon Ranger, and I thought that was a wonderful game. They also made Smash Bros. They know what they are doing seriously!

Super Smash Bros. 3DS anyone? (A new game not a N64 remake!)

There's also that Fossil Fighters sequel.

Are Ride 64 was never totally canned, it just had a 8 year development and came out for the GCN, and Earhtbound 64 was ported to the GBA (The First GBA FE was also supposed to be for the N64, and its likely the first GBA Advance Wars game was the never shown "N64 Wars")

I am still waiting for Tilt n Tumble 2, but I think that may show up on the 3DS to. Seems like a good fit.
