Kirby And The Forgotten Land Releasing on March 25

The next mainline installment in the Kirby franchise was previously slated for Spring 2022, but now has an official release date, along with a new trailer.

The new trailer reveals that many Kirby’s iconic copy abilities are returning, but also two new abilities: the Drill and Ranger. There will also be a co-op mode where a second player join as the spear-wielding, Bandana Waddle Dee. Kirby and the Forgotten Land also introduces Waddle Dee Town, the central hub. The town develops more and more based on the number of Waddle Dees you rescue as you progress. Minigames will unlock as the game progresses which includes the Waddle Dee Café, where Kirby needs to quickly prepare customers’ orders to keep them satisfied and aim for a high score.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the first 3D mainline Kirby game and is releasing on March 25 for Nintendo Switch.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Kirby series. Developer HAL Laboratory has created a special wallpaper to celebrate. More activities are also planned.
