One of the best Kirby games becomes frayed around the edges on the 3DS, with no co-op mode and some poorly thought out extras that would be better off left out.

Extra Epic Yarn stitches new content into a nine-year-old platformer and throws it onto 3DS, creating the best version of Kirby's adventure into Patch Land.

It’s easy to look at Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn and still see the same whimsically inventive game Nintendo and Good-Feel gave us nearly nine years ago. The cherished basic formula is still there and it’s as charming as ever. Most of the new content only adds to what is otherwise a fantastic experience

Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn brings one of the Wii's most underappreciated gems to a new audience on 3DS. In and of itself it remains a great game and the new features are mostly successful additions. The lack of 3DS specific controls does beg the question as to why this isn't on Switch, but if you do still have a 3DS, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn stands up as a system highlight and deserves more success than it found in its previous incarnation.

Kirby Extra Epic Yarn follow the steps from other recent 3DS ports like Luigi's Mansion: pick up the original game, add minor extras... and enjoy a second life. An idea that seems fair to us, if it's nicely done, as is the case. Maybe the new content falls short, but the original game was very enjoyable... and it keeps delivering.

Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is a fun, adorable adventure that's perfect for the Nintendo 3DS.

Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn is not that "Extra" after all, but Patch Land is still a place worth visiting.

Still a good game, but as a port it could have done better in terms of keeping the original game's spirit alive.
