Today Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata revealed a new Kirby game is in the works for the Wii, and the pink cream puff is no longer made of yarn.

The new Kirby title (which so far doesn't have an official name) is being developed by HAL, and is scheduled to release sometime this year. We don't have any other information right now, but the game looks like it's returning to the character's roots, both in terms of art style and gameplay. Here is a brief video of gameplay via YouTube.
