About Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush

In a control style moulded after the ground-breaking touch controls introduced in Kirby: Canvas Curse for Nintendo DS, players guide and guard Kirby by drawing lines on the Wii U GamePad touch screen using the stylus. These lines become Rainbow Ropes that Kirby rolls along, navigating obstacles and defeating enemies. Drawing Rainbow Ropes in creative ways like a loop will give Kirby a quick speed boost and they can also be used to protect Kirby from enemies and hazards, as well as to solve puzzles. For instance, using a well-drawn rope can block a waterfall or uncover a hidden area. Re-modelling the traditional Kirby format further, Kirby’s transformations into a tank, submarine and rocket in this game all come with their own distinct twist on the touch screen controls.
