Kirby goes mobile this week with the 3DS’ Extra Epic Yarn, but that’s about it. This is one of the lightest weeks on the Download this year.
Kirby ate the games
Uh, where are the games this week? There isn’t much at all when you dig into the list of available new titles. And honestly, why that is is something of a mystery.
Yes, it’s winter time, and that’s not traditional a great time for new games, but still. This week’s list looks more like an early January slate than anything else.
If you like Kirby though, and you’ve still got your 3DS, you might want to check out Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. Scroll down of the rest.

- Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn – One ticked-off sorcerer just banished Kirby, warping the poor puffball to a yarn world in need of saving. The twist? Having a yarn body is epic! Kirby can transform into knitted versions of vehicles like tanks and flying saucers. Plus, his new ravel abilities mimic his classic copy abilities, adding something new to every stage of this action-adventure game. The Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn game is available on March 8. Players that want to try before they buy can download the free demo, now available in Nintendo eShop.
