Not a new video, but yesterday was the first time I saw it.  I think it'll make me step-dad happy.  He was disappointed in Epic Yarn because "It's not a real Kirby game."

Seeing as we've been waiting for it since 2005, this game had better be [darn] good.

I wouldn't get excited for "Kirby's Star", but I would get excited for Kirby Wii!

I thought these were the same thing.

Wait, I also heard about "Kirby's Mass Attack"... is that the 3DS one? In any case, I'm glad to see they're finally getting this one off the ground, though the Kirby series is so vanilla to me at this point that I just don't know if I have it in my to care anymore. Still, those big attacks look pretty cool, and I'm always glad to see "the hats" return.

"Kirby's Mass Attack" is actually for the Nintendo DS, not the 3DS.

I haven't heard anything about it yet at E3 2011.

Ah, a lame duck game. Well, that's four Kirby games on one system now, so I guess less is more.

I just don't get this game. Yeah, I guess Amazing Mirror required multiplayer, but where does this idea still need to go?

Kirby's Star, eh... can he rent out the orbiting planets

Aha but seriously folks

Mass Attack looks more like something I'd play twice... I prefer the less by-the-book Kirby games

Kirby Wii looks great, mainly since it's a spiritual successor to 64. As for Mass Attack, though... Another game without copy abilities? Ehh. And if your clones are as stupid as they were in The Amazing Mirror, coordinating them like that will be frustrating.

It looks more like you control them all as one big mob, so....

Where has it been called Kirby's Star? Nintendo seems to just be calling it Kirby Wii so far.

Anyway, on Nintendo's E3 website, it shows a gameplay video showing 4-player gameplay akin to NSMBWii, only the four players are all different characters with different abilities:
First player Kirby, second Meta Knight, third Dedede, and fourth the waddle dee from Kirby 64. I don't know if you necessarily have to play in that order. This game is definitely looking fun!

Edit: here's a link to the page with the video/pics: http://e3.nintendo.com/games/detail/#/wii/kirby/
