    The first details have emerged of a new Kirby game for the DS.

    Due out in Japan before the end of the year, Atsumete! Kirby – which, according to 1Up, translates as Gather! Kirby – sees Nintendo's pink mascot head in a new direction following this year's relatively straightforward Wii effort Kirby's Epic Yarn.

    While it's still a side-scrolling platformer, this time around you'll be controlling up to 10 Kirbies at once, depending on how many items of fruit you've collected in a given stage.

    You'll control your puffy pink herd by tapping on the screen with the stylus, or double tapping to make them run.

    Using this control scheme you'll navigate your way around traditional side-scrolling levels, while sticking the boot into various evil critters. Should one of your Kirbies kick the bucket, you can direct any survivors to grab their spirit before it ascends to the heavens.

    There's no word on whether the game will head West, though it's a rare Kirby title that doesn't make it to these shores at some point.

    This isn't the only outing on the horizon for the pink blob. Nintendo also showed off a trailer for a new Wii platformer earlier this year during an investor report.

    Shouldn't be too bad, at least the DS isn't totally dead.

    When I read "New Kirby game coming to th... " on the Latest Discussions thingy I thought it was going to be about the Wii one. It's nice to see the DS still has schtuff.

    The game doesn't look bad. I don't think it'll be my kind of game though.
    We'll see later on.

    This looks interesting, it's the second Kirby title to make full use of the DS' features and it seems to be somewhat inspired by Amazing Mirror (and maybe Lemmings), though that's just speculation.

    I also speculate that this game won't have powers, though that's just what I'm gathering from the screens, and I hope I'm wrong.

    Best news I've heard today (after the Streets Of Rage remake getting crushed one, reason being - because of it I found out that this game exists xP)

    DS isn't gonna die yet eh? Makes me wonder....why no 3DS Kirby??

    I rather it be on the 3DS.

    I probably won't play it.

    Personally I prefer the fact that it's on the DS, because I can use my DSiXL and even if it were I doubt they'd make the game much different than if it were on the DS.

    It's good to see Nintendo releasing new content for the 3DS even after the release of the 3DS.
