Kirby's Epic Yarn is a game where Kirby is made of yarn. Notable for removing Kirby's inhale ability and being the start of Nintendo IP-related arts and crafts video games. It later received a rather sloppy port for the 3DS in 2019 titled Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn.

To do:
  • Check if there are differences in the English US text between the Japanese and US releases.
  • Some debugging things enabled through text files and unused levels for testing enemies. Specifically, stage998.gfa and stage999.gfa.

Sigh. Yep. This again.

In env/Common/E3.gfa, there's a file called E3.arc that has the unused graphics seen above. These were used for the E3 demo's title screen and are rather different compared to the graphics seen on the actual title screen.

English Text in Japanese Game

"You edit the the dol using a hex editor, you can substitute the "Japanese" string (offset 007E08F0) with "EnglishUS" (or "FrenchUS" or "SpanishUS") to play the game in those languages." - masterchan777.

The audio will still be in Japanese, but the text will be in the new language.
