Pretty much the same for me. Though I got my DS for Mario Kart DS, Canvas Curse was my first DS game that made the system's touch screen make sense to me. Also it was my first Kirby game I ever owned as well.
Pretty jealous that you guys get to play it this soon. I could easily have spent spring rolling around as a cutesy, pink ball of clay. Hell, the soundtrack alone should be worth the price of admission.
Kind of surprised Nintendo hasn't done a Paper Mario on Wii U, just because they seem to be getting a lot better with making these materials look like actual materials. up until now, I think Paper Mario has looked just like flat sprites, but now they're making things look like yarn, fabric, clay, etc, and they're getting pretty crazy good at it.
@Guillaume Reminds me of a Giant Bomb (I think?) gameplay video of Kirby's Epic Yarn where the two guys playing couldn't contain their feelings of affection for the cuteness on display, screaming and cursing every time something new popped up.
If Rainbow Curse is even half as cute as Epic Yarn I'm gonna be a very happy man.
I haven't watched GiantBomb's review, but their reasoning was it didn't live up to Canvas Curse...I can respect that. But every other review outlet is praising the game, so...outliers are going to happen.
