Our local Goodwill had a store unload about 100 of these a few months ago. It looked really stupid from the box. Then I played it last month for a couple of hours and was blown away at the storyline, characters, level design. It is definitely a new kirby design that is extremely well done. Def should be going for a lot more than it is on ebay/amazon.

@DarkRPGamer007 Kirby games never tend to sell well in Europe with NA and Japan being where 99% of the sales come from

If Europe would have participated this would easily have over 2.50m

It's quite strange when you look in the price for this game online. It ranges from less than 10 dollars (Walmart) to 30 dollars (Game Stop).

3rd best selling Kirby ever in America, and #2 in "Rest of the World." I'm curious if this is due to the game's quality, the Yarn element, the gameplay, etc.

I started this game a little bit ago. I thought that the fact that you couldn't die would make this game feel a little too easy, but I was wrong. The focus on collecting diamonds (or whatever they are) and the enemy's ability to rob you of them keeps you from feeling too comfortable (in a good way). That combined with this games unique design makes for quite a gem.

No prob spurgeon, I was just relaying that it might be YMMV. I order from amazon most of the time so it's no big deal to me. I just felt embarassed when I sent my buds and it was $10 more expensive than what it was. But, you're right about it still being a deal.

Yup everyone dismissed them, then the good games just kept coming this year!!! Everyone this is like 29.99 at Kmart till the 1st of January 2011. Go buy it while the sale is on, and get this to a million before the end. It will be close. Oh and I dont work for Kmart I just want this to sell well. Remember Walmart matches advertised prices as well!
