Kirby and the Rainbow Curse now available

Draw Rainbow Ropes on the Wii U GamePad

Posted on

Nintendo has confirmed the release of the visually striking new adventure Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, that finds players controlling Kirby exclusively using the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad controller in a world made of clay.

By drawing lines on the touch screen with the stylus, the player creates Rainbow Ropes that will help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat enemies. Three friends can hop in and out at any time using Wii Remote controllers to play as Waddle Dees and assist Kirby, and players can even use compatible amiibo figures once a day, per stage, to power up Kirby with special abilities.

Strategy not only comes into play in guiding Kirby, but also in the amount of Rainbow Ink used, as drawing Rainbow Ropes uses precious ink. By staying on the ground or collecting an ink bottle, players can refill the Rainbow Ink quickly. In addition to moving Kirby around, Rainbow Ropes can be used to solve environmental puzzles.

Instead of his traditional copy abilities, Kirby can transform into powerful vehicles. As a tank, Kirby will move automatically and players must tap on the GamePad touch screen to shoot at approaching enemies. When traveling through the depths as a submarine, Kirby will move to the spot players tap on the touch screen. And as a rocket, drawing Rainbow Ropes will help navigate him to the goal.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is available today in North America, exclusively for Wii U.
