Pop quiz: what s cuter than Kirby? Nothing, that s what! Kirby is the greatest pink ball of... something that the world has ever known, and his platforming adventures have been sheer unadulterated D awww -fests.

In Kirby s Extra Epic Yarn the Wii hit Kirby's Epic Yarn comes to the 3DS for the first time with (and the clue's in the name) extra content! In it, our favourite circular hero abandons the pink filling in favour of a string diet. His body and the world around him are made out of fabric, and that opens up a whole new thread of possibilities.

You can use your body as a lasso to catch onto zips and pull them open to reveal hidden areas and new ways to progress through the level. Going behind the scenery will result in Kirby bulging through the material as you explore secret passages.

It s not just the scenery you ll be transforming either - Kirby himself can change into cars, dolphins, UFOs and even gigantic battle tanks. Each form has specific benefits that can help Kirby get across certain dangers - zoom past obstacles as a car, glide through water streams as a submarine, and punch things into oblivion as the tank.

You should also look out for new Yarn Hats, special head gear that will give you brand new Ravel Abilities like turning Kirby into a tornado or summoning yarn balls out of thin air!

Every stage from the Wii version is present and accounted for, but the 3DS comes with those titular extra features. When you grab items you can craft bigger yearn balls, or summon a wind to rake in the beads.

There's also the new Devilish Mode, which has a devil chasing after Kirby, chucking spiky balls at him as he tries to get over the finish line or take down a boss. Best be fast or you'll come unravelled! Complete a level with the devil at your heels and you'll earn stamps which you can use to unlock new furniture for the little pink dude's flat.

Plus, there are two new mini-games that see Meta Knight and King Dedede jumping into the fun. Slash and Bead features Meta Knight flying his way through a series of levels, collecting Fuse Beans and slicing and dicing enemies. In Dedede Gogogo the King undertakes a series of speed challenges that see him leaping over, sliding under or smashing through everything in his path!

If you're a Kirby veteran you'll find a fun refresher with plenty of new content in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. If you're new - what took you so long?
