Kirby is transported to Patch Land through a sock by Yin-Yarn, but not before Kirby sucks in a tomato that grants him special ablities in the world of yarn. Kirby soon saves Prince Fluff and learns that Patch Land has been split into pieces that the magic yarn needs to hold together. The duo sets off to find all of the magic yarn and put Patch Land back together again.
The Wii remote is held sideways and uses the D-pad and the 1 ans 2 buttons for the main moves. You can yarn to unravel enemies and jump to get to different heights. There are also special transformations that Kirby and Prince Fluff can undergo to use new powers.
