Kirby's Epic Yarn



One day in the peaceful kingdom of Dream Land, Kirby was out for a stroll when he spotted his favorite food, a bright red tomato, sitting on top of a bush. As soon as he tried to swallow the tomato, though, a caped sorcerer appeared! "Hey! That’s my magic Metamato!" the sorcerer shouted. But Kirby gulped the Metamato right down! Just then, a white sock around the sorcerer’s neck began to glow…and Kirby was sucked right into the sock! It took Kirby a moment to realize that somehow the sock had transported him to a world made completely of cloth and yarn. And to his great surprise, he saw that his whole body was made out of yarn! Then Kirby noticed a yarn monster chasing a blue yarn boy! Kirby transformed into a car and saved the boy from the monster. Apparently, that strange Metamato gave Kirby the power to seamlessly transform into a car and…who knows what else? The blue yarn boy said his name was Fluff and that he was the prince of Patch Land. Prince Fluff explained that he was on a journey to stitch the continents of Patch Land back together after they had been torn apart by Yin-Yarn the Sorcerer. When Kirby heard this, he decided to help Prince Fluff save Patch Land and destroy the evil Yin-Yarn!
