Kirby and the Rainbow Curse announced ahead of 2015 launch

Nintendo has unveiled a new Kirby game, with Kirby and the Rainbow Curse unveiled as part of Nintendo’s E3 2014 digital showcase.

One of a number of new Wii U titles announced during the company’s press conference, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will land next year with a heavy focus on utilising the Wii U’s touchscreen hosting GamePad controller.

A follow-on to 2005’s DS release, Kirby: Canvas Curse, the new Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will see gamers use the GamePad to draw lines for your rolling Kirby character to traverse in order to reach the end of the course.

Featuring a number of varying levels  – many of which look very Sonic inspired – Kirby and the Rainbow Curse puzzles can be solved in a number of ways, including drawing lines to stem a flowing waterfalls or destroying blocks to open up a new path.

With Kirby set to once again be pitted against the pesky Whispy Woods, the E3 trailer has shown the little pink character can transform into a tank, submarine or rocket.

A precise Kirby and the Rainbow Curse release date is still up in the air, although Nintendo has confirmed the game will hit the Wii sometime in 2015.
