Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush, perhaps better known as Kirby and the Rainbow Curse in the US, has finally been dated for us Europeans. It will launch on May 8th exclusively on Wii U, Nintendo confirms today.
We love Kirby, the adorable ravenous serial cannibal that he is, and Kirby & The Rainbow Paintbrush is a fantastic idea. Using the Wii U GamePad, we'll create clay ropes for Kirby to swing around on and blast enemies away, finally using the touchscreen as a key gameplay mechanic as opposed to just a gimmick.
It reviewed well Stateside, and if you want to pre-order, you can still buy Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush for just £26.95 at The Game Collection.
And yes, before you ask, it is definitely now called "Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush" here in the UK. Not "Curse." "Paintbrush."
