Kirby's Epic Yarn is a Kirby game that was developed for the Nintendo Wii by Good-Feel with help from HAL Laboratory. It is the first Kirby game to be released for the Wii (as well as the first console adventure since Kirby 64) and features a unique gameplay style.
Everything began when Kirby innocently ate a tomato which turned out to be a Metamato belonging to the evil sorcerer Yin-Yarn, who proceeded to magically banish Kirby into Patch Land. He was transformed into yarn in the process and lost his ability to inhale, but he gained new transformative powers at the same time. He quickly used these powers to save a blue yarn boy from a monster. The boy turned out to be Prince Fluff, who told him that Yin-Yard had split apart Patch Land into seven pieces connected by threads of yarn, so Kirby decided to collect these seven pieces of yarn to save Patch Land.
The game is controlled using the Wii Remote held sideways. Kirby's traditional moves are gone in favor of new yarn-based gameplay. Kirby can use yarn to whip enemies, and he can also entrap them within a ball of yarn. Kirby also has the ability to transform into a variety of vehicles such as a car, tank or dolphin, for use in navigating the various types of terrain. There is no type of health meter, but Kirby will drop collectible beads when hit.
The game also has a two player cooperative mode in which the second player controls Prince Fluff.
It was followed by Kirby's Return to Dream Land for the Wii, which returns to the classic 2D platforming style.
