    I never really got into Kirby games. I think I also discovered him through Smash Bros on N64. Or my brother’s copy of tilt & tumble which I hated. I pretty much ignored his character. I never got Canvas Cruse despite the rave reviews. I did however get Epic Yarn back in 2010. I loved it. Played through it co-op with a housemate. Yeah you can’t die but the presentation was amazing. Plus scoring in co-op is hard especially with griefing. I wanted to get the Wii Collection and return to dreamland. Maybe I should and visit this franchise. Thanks for the info. Also do you see any interesting ways Kirby could be done with WiiU?
