    A very cute game from beginning to end. If Kirby games are meant for 6 years and above, this one would fall more into the 4 and above category as there is no way to get a game over and would serve as a perfect entry level game for any child. It's child-like charm was not a hindrance to me though, Kirby is Kirby!

    This feels like pants that are pre-ripped for some reason, as opposed to the charming comfort of what came before. [Issue #39 – May/June 2019, p. 70]

    There's enough on display here that, if you were a big fan of Kirby's Epic Yarn, you could get at least get a couple more hours of entertainment out of it. However, assuming you’re not a big fan, than I would suggest waiting for something with a bit more substance to come out, which should be around Metroid Prime 4’s release.

    Almost nine years and Kirby's Epic Yarn is still one of the cutest platforms ever made. And it works very well also on the Nintendo 3DS.
