Kirby and the Rainbow Curse coming in February with multiplayer

There's a new release window for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and the pink puffball's latest will also feature multiplayer.


Out of all of Nintendo's lovable mascots, Kirby appears to be the one most open to experimentation. That looks to be the case, once again, with the upcoming Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, which will take full advantage of the Wii U GamePad for its core gameplay premise. During today's Nintendo Direct, however, viewers also learned that the game will feature multiplayer for up to four players.

The main premise will remain the same in multiplayer, with one Kirby making his way through a claymation world. That player will draw platforms on the GamePad touch screen to roll Kirby around and help him move around the world. Three other players can also join up as Waddle Dees, the dopey minions of King Dedede, who can assist Kirby by collecting items or carrying the pink puffball on their backs.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will release in February 2015. While Nintendo doesn't have a new trailer up at the moment, this E3 trailer will explain everything that there is to know.
