Vibrant, colorful, and full of joy, Kirby Wii is exactly the sort of game experience I crave when I power on Nintendo's soon-to-be last generation system.

An alien ship has crash landed in the realm of Pop Star, and Kirby must travel the lands gathering pieces of the broken craft to help stranded aliens get home. It's a daunting task for one little pink puffball, but he's not alone. At any time up to three other players can join in, taking on the roles of Meta Knight, King Dedede and Waddle Dee.

This is the sort of goofy fun I've looked to Nintendo for since the days of the NES. I just want to hug it. I probably will this fall.
