Kirby's Epic Yarn = Still the Nintendo Sleeper to Watch Out For.

Now that Metroid Other M is out, we await what's next in the fall for Nintendo. Other than the sure big money hits like Donkey Kong Country Returns and even Wii Party (because anything Wii-something will sell other than Wii Music as the exception - then again, its not bundled with anything, so that might flop), the sleeper of Nintendo's lineup is Kirby's Epic Yarn, which comes out in October. Epic Yarn to me is like the "Paper Mario" of the Kirby franchise as its the Kirby formula, but changed up a bit and also very artsy, which is indeed the case. It wowed the press at E3 with its originality and I hope the audience will catch on to it besides hardcore Nintendo fans that have been waiting for a true Kirby game like this since well Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (I played that game and it was okay, but not great). This will be likely my next Wii game after Other M unless I get something else.
