Kirby's Epic Yarn (毛糸のカービィ Keito no Kābī, literally translated to "Kirby of Yarn") is the tenth platform installment of the Kirby video game series, developed for the Wii video game console by Good Feel, Inc., with supervision from HAL Laboratory. After five years of speculation, it was officially unveiled at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010. It is the first entry in the Kirby series on a home console since 2003's Kirby Air Ride and its first home console platform game since 2000's Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
The curtain that is pulled to reveal cutscenes only half opens for some cutscenes.
When the Wii Aspect Ratio is set to 4:3, the game will add gray-green borders to the top and bottom of the screen to remain in 16:9. Kirby's Epic Yarn was designed to work this way, but if you want Dolphin to stretch the image to fill the entire screen, use the following steps:
- In Config > "Wii" Tab - Set "Aspect Ratio" to "16:9"
- In Graphics Config > "General" Tab - Set "Display - Aspect Ratio" to "Force 4:3" (or use hotkey "4").
This method will distort the image, so it is not recommended.
This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
