There's 'potential for Mario Epic Yarn' game, says Hal Labs

Hal manager Takashi Ikegami keen on taking the yarn theme to other franchises

Hal manager Takashi Ikegami is so pleased with how Kirby's Epic Yarn has turned out, that he feels there's potential for the 'yarn' theme to continue in other franchises - like 'Mario Epic Yarn', for example.

"When I first saw them, I thought they were perfect for Kirby. I think there's a lot of potential for expanding this style to other series, like making a game called Mario's Epic Yarn," he said during a recent Iwata Asks interview (via ONM).

"That's how well I thought the foundation had been laid, so I was really happy that from among all the characters available it was Kirby who was chosen," added Ikegami.

Kirby's Epic Yarn is already out in US and Japan - and is awesome - but won't be hitting Euro shores until Q1 2011. Bummer.
