Kirby’s Epic Yarn is coming to Nintendo 3DS. Originally released on Wii in 2010 and rereleased on Wii U in 2016, Kirby’s Epic Yarn is a side-scrolling platformer that takes place in a world where everything and everyone is made of yarn. The full game will be available on the 3DS.

Every wooly and yarny stage from the Wii version is returning to this handheld version, but new features will be available. Players can use items, craft bigger yarn balls and conjure up wind. If you want to mix things up, there’s also a new mode called “devilish mode,” involving outrunning speed demons.

Additionally, there will be some new minigames with a chance to play as other familiar Kirby characters such as Meta Knight. Keep your eyes peeled for which other Kirby characters will make their yarn-y debuts.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn will be exclusively available for Nintendo 3DS in 2019.
