Kirby's Epic Yarn is a sidescrolling 2-D platformer and a spin-off game in the Kirby series, developed primarily by Good-Feel. Despite being in the same genre, the game departs from the main Kirby series in several key ways, chief of which being the setting, art style, and Kirby's move-set: instead of inhaling enemies to gain their powers, Kirby uses a Yarn Whip to unravel his foes or wrap them up into projectiles. As implied by the title, the game is centered around a yarn and fabric aesthetic, and the setting, story, and stage gimmicks play heavily off this theme, from Kirby interacting with buttons, patches, and threads to reshaping himself and other characters by various means.
Another key aspect of Kirby's Epic Yarn is its accessibility and ease of play. Unlike most other platformers, it is not possible for the player to lose the game, with damage to Kirby and his second-player companion Prince Fluff being punished only by losing beads instead of actually having a health meter or extra life counter. As such, the only real difficulty the game presents is entirely to the player's discretion, taking the form of earning medals in stages by completing them with more beads, or by grabbing all of the optional collectibles. These collectibles include pieces of music that can be listened to in a separate area of the game and pieces of furniture and fabric which can be used to decorate an apartment given to Kirby in the game's world of Patch Land.
Originally beginning as a non-Kirby game, Kirby's Epic Yarn would eventually gain the pink puffball as its main character and be shown at E3 2010, to much critical acclaim. The game was subsequently released for the Wii later that same year in Japan and North America and in 2011 in other regions; this game would also be the first game in the Kirby series to be officially localized into Canadian French and Latin American Spanish for the North American market. Kirby's Epic Yarn would later be ported to the Wii U as a downloadable eShop title in 2015 and 2016. In 2019, the game received an enhanced port for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn.

- March 16th, 2023 - Heads up, WiKirbians! Just a friendly reminder that on March 27th, 2023, Nintendo plans to completely shut down the eShops for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. There were a lot of great Kirby games on offer for both of those devices, whether made for the systems or on Virtual Console, so if you were looking to get your hands on any of those games, now would be the time to do it. Don't let the chance to legally own and play Kirby's Blowout Blast slip you by for the rest of eternity! That would be a darned shame...
