Kirbys Extra Epic Yarn

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn was known to be coming out sometime this year. Today, Nintendo confirmed that the game is launching on March 8.

We also have some news about amiibo functionality. By scanning compatible Kirby series amiibo figures, you can earn hats and abilities based on the figure used.

During the last Nintendo Direct, Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn was announced. The 2010 Wii game will be making its way to 3DS sometime in 2019.

Following the presentation, Nintendo added a listing for Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn to its website. There was some concern that the port would be exclusive to New 3DS as that platform was actually listed on the official page. However, that won’t be the case after all.

Nintendo has updated the Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn listing again, which now has a general “Nintendo 3DS” platform listed. The original “New Nintendo 3DS” part has been modified, so fans can rest easy knowing that Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn will work on all 3DS systems.


The deluxe 3DS edition of Kirby’s Epic Yarn is exclusive to New 2DS and 3DS systems, according to the game’s page on This isn’t atypical for the more recently announced 3DS games, but probably a disappointment to those who never upgraded.
