Console: Gameboy Advance
Seen most recently among the freebies handed out by Nintendo to placate early 3DS adopters and now available on the Wii U eShop, Kirby & the Amazing Mirror’s already in fine company. The title earns its prestige with a twist on the usual suck-’em-up Kirby formula, one which paid off.
Contracted out to Minish Cap developer Flagship, Amazing Mirror forgoes the left-to-right platforming action in favor of a Metroidvania-style quest incorporating a large game world and multiple Kirbies. Fans of the character – or of anything Metroid-esque and Nintendo-approved – ought to keep an eye out for a copy.
