Two Kirby games form two different platforms are heading to the Wii U's Virtual Console tomorrow.

Kirby's Epic Yarn came out in 2010 for the Wii and was one of the first Nintendo games to adopt a yarn aesthetic. Kirby Mass Attack released for the DS in 2011 and tasked players with controlling a large group of Kirbys (Kirbies?) using the stylus.

Both games will be available on Wii U tomorrow. Epic Yarn will be $19.99 and Mass Attack will be $9.99.

Our Take
I never had a chance to play Mass Attack, but I've always felt Epic Yarn is too simple. I love its art style, but remember it being a chore to complete as I rarely felt challenged. I love its art style, though.
