Nintendo has confirmed that Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush, arrives in Europe on 8th May. The Wii U game includes multiplayer support whereby three friends can hop in and out at any time to assist Kirby, using Wii Remote controllers to play as Waddle Dees. Players can also use compatible amiibo figures once per day on every stage to power up Kirby with special abilities.
Kirby games have often experimented with inventive visual styles and unique gameplay twists, with past games having Kirby ride on hamsters and transforming into yarn. Kirby’s latest outing is no exception, taking place in a beautifully realised world of clay. Dream Land has been drained of all its colour and it’s down to Kirby to bring the colour back by traversing seven planets, defeating enemies and solving puzzles along the way.
