Kirby Mass Attack

The Wii U eShop is being updated with re-releases of two Kirby games this week. First up is Kirby’s Epic Yarn, which will be made available as a Wii download. Kirby Mass Attack is also launching on the Virtual Console.

Here’s an overview of both:

Kirby’s Epic Yarn

“When Kirby incurs the anger of a sorceror, he is transported to a world made completely of cloth and yarn! Guide Kirby through uniquely crafted levels in Patch Land, taking on a variety of forms in his common actions and transforming into powerful vehicles. Prince Fluff can also aid in the adventure with a 2nd player!”

Kirby Mass Attack

“Gather a mob of Kirby characters, and then lead them on a crazy adventure where nothing can stand in your way! You can send Kirbys swarming over your enemies, fling them into the air to hit flying floes, and even take on challenges of strength! Be sure to collect medals hidden throughout various stages to unlock minigames.”

Pricing for Kirby’s Epic Yarn is set at $19.99. Kirby Mass Attack will cost $9.99.

Kirby Mass Attack hit the European Wii U Virtual Console earlier today. Take a look at some footage of the title below.

Along with Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby Mass Attack is also hitting the European Wii U Virtual Console on December 3.

Kirby Triple Deluxe is off to a great start in Japan having sold 214,208 copies in its first week, according to data from Media Create. That figure stacks up extremely favorably to the previous three Kirby games released.

Kirby’s Return to Dreamland comes the closet with first week sales standing in at 136,811 units. Kirby’s Epic Yarn sold only 92,280 copies, and Kirby: Mass Attack only moved 74,915 units in its first few days.

Ultimately, lifetime sales are probably what will end up mattering the most. That being said, Nintendo must be pleased with Kirby Triple Deluxe’s performance so far.
