Nintendo planning new Kirby game, “to be announced” for Wii

Buried on page eight of Nintendo’s financial statement released this week (pdf), gamers will find a listing for a new Kirby game “to be announced” for Wii. For the handful of you able to overlook Curby’s sickly sweet, kiddy appeal, only to discover his platforming power-up awesomeness, this is good news.

Excluding the Kirby Super Star remake for DS in 2008, Nintendo hasn’t released an original Kirby game since 2006. And if you really want to get technical about it, they haven’t released a truly innovative Kirby game since 2005.
