Theme Writing[edit]

One reason I wanted to create this wiki is to have a wiki that's fun to read and work on. I'm hoping you all pick up on the style and work in more theme words. This will be easier when we have a plot to the game to work in terms like: "Woven" "fiber" "(un)buttoned" "loose ends" "(un)folds" "fleecing" etc. Set your imaginations free!

points?[edit]

Is the number in the top-left corner the amount of something Kirby has? Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 13:45, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Looking at the game's trailer, the number increases when Kirby collects what this article refers to as "coins"; how much it increases seems to depend on the colour and size of the item collected. (The counter does not increase when Kirby defeats an enemy, so it doesn't appear to be a traditional counter for points.) The colour of the jewel next to it also changes, seemingly whenever an item is collected - from what can be seen in the trailer, it starts at red, then progresses to orange, yellow, green, light blue, medium blue, dark violet, ultra pink, deep pink and finally back to red again.--Vellidragon 15:19, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Not originally a Kirby game[edit]

According to this IGN article Kirby's Epic Yarn was originally its own game, starring a character named Fluff (Maybe Prince Fluff?). It apparently became a Kirby game during development over a year ago. Oh, and apparently this is going to be released in Japan three days before the US. It's Turtwig A!

Yup, it was supposed to be an entirely new series by Nintendo, but it scrapped early in production and became a Kirby game. And yes, it is going to be released in Japan 3 days before the USA gets it...Darn....:(

So should I add it? It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 20:24, 9 October 2010 (CDT)
It's an important part of the game's development history, so I don't see why not. Make sure you properly source it (with ref tags), though.--Vellidragon 20:33, 9 October 2010 (CDT)
Okay then. I'll use the article I found as the source. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 20:55, 9 October 2010 (CDT)

World section[edit]

Shouldn't the world section be condensed, with most of the information going to the Patch Land page? It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 21:46, 16 October 2010 (CDT)

I guess so, just sum it up on the Patch Land section of this page. --Stupid Name Guy, Remino52 22:27, 29 October 2010 (CDT)

Soundtracks[edit]

Should we create an article called "Kirby's Epic Yarn Soundtracks" where all the soundtracks from Kirby's Epic Yarn are listed? I'm trying to think of content to add to the soundtrack articles and it seems to me like all the soundtrack articles would be way too short to work out. So putting them together into one article may be the only way, what do other people think? --Kirbyguy1 (Talk | Contribs)

Assuming this is referring to the CDs one can find throughout the game, those should definitely get an article, and I agree they wouldn't be able to stand on their own as individual articles. I for one wouldn't oppose organising them into a single article like the Ability Scrolls. The title should likely be different though; it should be the (singular) term the game uses to refer to the CDs (I don't quite remember what the game calls them, to be honest. If it actually calls them soundtracks, then the article covering them should just be named "Soundtrack" (and begin with an explanation of its subject before listing anything)).--Vellidragon 19:34, 9 May 2011 (CDT)
When the items are collected in the game, their names are just the name of the level (i.e. in Patch Castle, the CD is called "Patch Castle" - I added the soundtrack part on myself to differentiate them, but if you think there's a better term (I really liked the word "CD" when I saw it, maybe "Kirby's Epic Yarn CDs" should be the title) then I'm open). Sorry for the overload of bracketed text... Kirbyguy1 (Talk | Contribs)
Wow! I was uploading this image for my test page, to begin formatting the new article (whatever the title), when I realized something that I had missed before; in the Patch Plaza, all of the "soundtracks" are labeled (by the game) as "Tunes" (see the image for more details). So I think the new article should definitely be called "Tunes". Kirbyguy1 (Talk | Contribs)
