Kirby's Epic Yarn is a platform video game developed by Good-Feel and HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Wii. It is the tenth installment of the Kirby series and was released in October 2010 in Japan and North America and in February 2011 in Australia and Europe. It is the first entry in the Kirby series on a home video game console since 2003's Kirby Air Ride and its first home video game console platform game since 2000's Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
The game follows Kirby, who has been transformed into yarn and sent to Patch Land, a world made completely out of fabric. He must help Prince Fluff by collecting seven pieces of magic yarn that are used to stitch Patch Land together in order to stop the game's antagonist, Yin Yarn. Kirby's Epic Yarn utilizes a unique craft-based visual style; the game's characters and environments consist entirely of yarn, fabric, and other craft materials. Unlike most games in the Kirby series, Kirby is unable to inhale or fly, instead relying on the ability to morph into other objects, such as a parachute, a car, and a submarine, as well as larger objects such as a tank and a steam train.
The third game developed by Good-Feel in tandem with Nintendo, Kirby's Epic Yarn was originally proposed by Madoka Yamauchi, who came up with the idea of a "world of yarn" as a video game. It began development as "Keito no Fluff", a game starring Prince Fluff as the main protagonist, before the starring character was eventually switched to Kirby. The game's graphical style was created via digital images of real-life fabrics which were placed over polygons. The game's music was composed by Tomoya Tomita.
An enhanced port titled Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn was announced in a Nintendo Direct presentation on September 13, 2018, and was released in March 2019 for Nintendo 3DS. The game features additional abilities, the new Devilish Mode and new subgames. This port also features Amiibo support, as using any Kirby-related Amiibo figure will grant players new hats and abilities.
