Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is an upcoming spin-off title exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. It is an enhanced port of Kirby's Epic Yarn featuring some new content, including extra items, abilities, and game modes. It is slated for release on March 7th, 2019 in Japan, March 8th in North America and Europe, and March 9th in Australia.

New Features

In addition to all of the content from the original game, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn features the following additional content:

Ravel Abilities

These are six hats which operate similarly to Copy Abilities, giving Kirby new ways to attack opponents. They are as follows:

  • A weaving hat which causes any Yarn Balls Kirby makes to become larger when worn.
  • A wire hat and sword that allows Kirby to swipe at opponents.
  • A hard hat that allows Kirby to toss exploding button bombs.
  • Nylon - A blue crown which allows Kirby to create vortexes that draw in beads when used.
  • A bobbin hat that allows Kirby to throw a bobbin on a string similar to the Yo-yo.
  • A pincushion hat that allows Kirby to throw needles at enemies.


  • Devilish Mode
    • An extra game mode which causes devilish creatures to chase Kirby through a given level and try to harass him. If Kirby is hit 5 times by this enemy, he is presumably defeated. This mode will likely play out similarly to the neighbors' mini-games.
  • Two Sub-Games featuring King Dedede and Meta Knight called Meta Knight's Slash & Bead and Dedede Gogogo, having them run through a course and defeat enemies while collecting beads.


New Furniture and Fabric will be available for decorating Kirby's Pad.


Kirby can gain aesthetic hats if the player scans in a Kirby series amiibo figurine. These hats are tied to certain Ravel abilities.


Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn was first announced during the Nintendo Direct on September 13th, 2018. This direct revealed the name of the game, along with announcing several of its new features, albeit briefly.

For a brief period, the North American page for Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn erroneously stated the game to be playable exclusively on 'New Nintendo 3DS' systems. This was later corrected.
