Guide Kirby with the GamePad in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Nintendo has promised to take better advantage of the Wii U GamePad in its first party titles, and upcoming Kirby and the Rainbow Curse seems to be one of the company’s ways to make good on that promise. If the trailer is any indication, the player will guide Kirby through side-scrolling levels by drawing paths on the GamePad. Like many of the titles announced at this morning’s E3 pres...

Kirby game headed to Nintendo 3DS in 2014

This morning’s Nintendo Direct ended with a teaser trailer for a new Nintendo 3DS title featuring everyone’s favorite ball of pink puff, Kirby. The trailer suggests the graphics and gameplay will closely resemble those of Kirby’s Return to Dream Land for Wii, so it’ll probably be a very traditional Kirby game. The minute-long trailer shows Kirby switching from the foregroun...

Nintendo Spotting: Mario, Kirby, and Pikachu chalk art

While attending class at DePaul University, Infendo reader Anthony Colon spotted some Nintendo-related chalk art at a nearby street. Anthony stated this in an email accompanying the above photo: “It was definitely a nice reminder of my childhood.” Couldn’t agree anymore, Anthony. Plus, chalk art (especially in college towns) is always a welcome sight.

Kirby 20th Anniversary Collection detailed for North America

Back in April, Nintendo announced that the their lovable pink puffball, Kirby, would be receiving his own game collection to commemorate the character’s 20th anniversary (Side note: Nintendo, just so you know, you never did acknowledge the Metroid series’ 25th anniversary last year. Just saying. But, I digress). Now, the full details of  this Wii-exclusive collection have been revealed...

Kirby’s Just for Kids – A Common Misconception

Being Kirby’s 20th anniversary and all (an occasion Nintendo thankfully intends to recognize with a Wii disc comprising many of Kirby’s exploits), I think the little guy deserves some due credit beyond his upcoming anniversary collection for being a singularly amazing video game character who has starred in some of the darkest games the big N’s ever crafted. That’s right, K...

A Writer Appears! Michael Enters the Fray!

Then again, couldn’t we all just be friends? Y’know, like Kirby and Ribbon over there? Or you could just give me chocolates, and we’ll call it a day. Mmm…chocolates. Er, let’s start over. Michael Fletcher’s my name, and by the look of things I’m going to be writing here every now and then. Which is pretty sweet, considering I live for games of the video va...

Remixed Kirby looks sharp on eShop

Aren’t Nintendo holiday seasons great? The first-party fun kicked off last week with the amazing Freakyforms, continued through the masterpiece Super Mario 3D Land, added a 3D Kirby (well, 3D 2D) today, and continues steamrolling toward Skyward Sword this Sunday and Mariokart 7 in December! Not to mention that there should be some announcement very soon about those ten free GBA games for Amb...

Kirby 3D? Swapnote? Which recent Nintendo announcement are you most excited about?

The end of the week saw a lot of tidbits flooding out of Nintendo regarding Mariokart, new eShop games and the upcoming 3DS firmware update. What did you think? Which ones–if any–got you smiling? In case you missed any of the details, here’s a quick rundown of the highlights:

Kirby Mass Attack: “The closest thing to a Canvas Curse sequel we’ll ever see”

Kirby Mass Attack (out today) is getting really good reviews. Here’s one in particular: There will inevitably be Kirby purists who will baulk at the rather unorthodox gameplay concept behind Kirby Mass Attack, but if they do they’ll be missing out on one of Kirby’s most unique adventures to date. While there are a few extremely minor control issues that pop up from time to time, ...

Worst Nintendo box art ever?

I haven’t hopped on the Nintendo hate wagon that’s been going on around here yet, so here’s my entry: worst Nintendo box art ever. Come on Nintendo! You’d think that a cutey line Kirby deserves to have his happy mug splashed on the cover of his new title Mass Attack! I also have never heard of this developer called TEMP. Seriously, though, I love Kirby and this game looks r...
