Product Details:

Do you have the magic touch? Then guide Kirby as he sets off on grand adventures in a hand-sculpted clay world. Draw lines on the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller to create rainbow-colored clay ropes to move Kirby around freely, or tap him to attack enemies or blast through obstacles. Transformations include a submarine, rocket and tank. In underwater levels, Kirby dons a swim mask. If his power level gets too low, a clay bandage appears on his head.


  • Kirby comes to life in a world of clay, which creates a beautiful backdrop for Kirby's adventure.
  • You take control of Kirby with the stroke of a stylus and draw on the GamePad touch screen to guide Kirby through the world.
  • Use the GamePad to control Kirby's many transformations in unique new ways.
  • The intuitive drawing mechanic is a spiritual successor to Kirby: Canvas Curse for Nintendo DS that builds on the game play and takes it in a new direction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun reinvention of the Kirby series I love Kirby, :D. I love this game so much so far. It is a little hard sometimes but I love the challenge. It makes it even funner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kirby's off on a roll! Rainbow Curse is a pretty good game. I recommend playing it in separate sessions though. It's pretty great for casual gamers who don't normally play games. In single player, you control Kirby in ball form. While he doesn't play the same as in other games in the series Kirby is still fun and easy to control. You draw the path on the gamepad for Kirby to follow. Especially with it's multi-player mode where the other 1-3 players get to help P1 (Kirby) on his journey. P1 draws lines for Kirby to travel on while the others collect stars. The story is pretty average, but the game play of this title is the main point. The game offers loads of replay value by having collectables in the form of cute figurines, diary entries that tell more of the story, and music tracks. The game is a bit on the short side only spanning 7 worlds (21 levels with 7 boss stages), but is fun delightful little adventure for anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shoulda been a 3DS Game I've always enjoyed the kirby series. So when I saw a new one coming out I was intrigued. I'm always glad to see developers (even the home team) find unique ways to interface with the game and was glad to see that the stylus was going to be featured in a game. However, upon seeing the game play footage, I thought it could go two ways. Be super neat like Okami (ie: like a normal kirby game with stylus being used like a special ability), or.....that I would spend the entire game staring down at my game pad. Turns out the latter was the case. There is no interface BUT the stylus on game pad. No other controls. Now maybe super coordinated individuals have the sense of space to look up at the TV and draw lines down in their lap. I however cant do it. I mean even just an on screen representation of the stylus (like a mouse pointer) would likely solve this problem. No joy however. For what it's worth, the visual style is very fun, but the only way to really enjoy it is to look at your tv screen...which requires you to stop playing. If I had done better research I might have known that this was a "remake" of sorts for a DS game, which makes perfect sense. Why it wasn't released on the "next gen" DS platform is beyond me. If you NEED a kirby fix, I guess give it a go. But I like my Kirby eatin fools and gaining powers. Not rolling around like a doof on a hand held screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a hardcore kirby fan so this will be amazing. I cant believe their remaking Kirby canvas curse. I loved playing canvas curse as a rom but now I can play a remake on a system not my ipod.
