Over the past few months, the Canadian developer Alex Auger has been uploading videos to their YouTube channel showing off a new Kirby fan game, which he's named Kirby & The Eternal Paradise.

The game is meant as a follow-up to the 2004 Game Boy Advance title Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and features a number of familiar abilities such as the cutter boomerang and fireballs. They've also asked Kirby fans for their own suggestions for original copy abilities, with the best ideas likely to end up in the free fangame.

Auger has only shown off the level Green Greens so far, as well as some test rooms, but from what we've seen it looks extremely impressive with tons of color and cute enemies on show.

Kirby & The Eternal Paradise is currently using Auger's own Kirby engine, which they developed inside of GameMaker: Studio, and apparently aims to let players explore "an open environment, solve puzzles, and partake in a variety of mini-games to recover a stolen Star Rod". It's shaping up to be a worthy successor to the Game Boy Advance title, and there's even a one-level demo of the game that is now available to download from GameJolt, so you can try it out for yourself!
