Nintendo Kirby and the Rainbow Curse on Wii U Launch Event #rainbowcurse

The Nintendo World Store hosted an event for the launch of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse on Wii U and of course we had to be there! Not only would we get a chance for some one on one me with the video game but we'd also see/meet/get a photo with Kirby!

Launching for the Wii U console, the visually striking new adventure Kirby and the Rainbow Curse finds players controlling Kirby exclusively using the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad controller in a world made of clay.

By drawing lines on the touch screen with the stylus, the player creates Rainbow Ropes that will help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat enemies. Three friends can hop in and out at any time using Wii Remote controllers to play as Waddle Dees and assist Kirby, and players can even use compatible amiibo figures once a day, per stage, to power up Kirby with special abilities.

Using the touch screen was easy for my son, and will be for most children since that's how the game is exclusively played. My son enjoyed transforming Kirby into different vehicles (including tank, sumarina and rocket) and then using the touch pad to get the bad guys.

Meanwhile I liked the rainbow ropes. I didn't get a chance to play the game and make any (since my son was hogging the Wii U pad) but I watched my son make a few. The Rainbow Ropes guide Kirby in the direction you want him to go, and drawing ropes in creative ways like a loop will even give Kirby a quick speed boost.

In addition to moving Kirby around, Rainbow Ropes can be used to solve environmental puzzles, block a waterfall or uncover hidden areas.

After gaming for a bit we headed off to enjoy the other activities happening at the event.

We completed a Kirby mini quiz to entered a contest to win a Kirby Pillow or poster. Sadly we didn't win anything but it was fun anyway.

We tried hula hooping and was surprised when my son actual did it. For a few seconds. He won a bracelet as a a prize.

We made Kirby clay figures. We did need some help from the clay team on how to make Kirby look but my son figured it out. I think his clay Kirby came out nice.

What a fun morning at the The Nintendo World. Overall Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a fun game to play for all members of the family. We recommend it!


Kirby and the Rainbow Curse launched for Wii U on Feb. 20 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The game will also be available for purchase in the Nintendo eShop and at Nintendo.com

  1. We JUST saw a commercial for this yesterday and my 7 year old wants it so bad. The only issue is that he doesn't have a Wii U. I am thinking of maybe getting him one for his birthday.
