Look forward to a brand new, non-yarn-based Kirby game for the Wii. Nintendo of Japan dropped a small mention of a fresh Kirby game in its quarterly report alongside a small video demonstration of the game in action.
The title, which is being developed by HAL Laboratory, doesn’t appear to be a direct follow-up to last year's Epic Yarn. As you’ll see in the video, this is a Kirby game with a wholly different visual style and a different set of powers. As Joystiq notes in its article about the sudden reveal, you’ll catch Kirby swinging around a massive sword and summoning a fire dragon. Also, vomiting enemies.
If or when this is coming to North America is anyone’s guess at the moment, though I’m sure we’ll be hearing much more about this one rather soon. That last Kirby game turned out pretty darn well, after all.
