Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Nintendo’s adorable pink puffball, the next mainstream game, will be released on March 25th.
The game’s sugary post-apocalyptic setting, some of Kirby’s new abilities, several old characters, and the game’s two-player co-op are all shown in action in a new teaser.
Also noteworthy are the new drill ability, which allows Kirby to sink into the earth and hit enemies from below, and the Ranger ability, which allows Kirby to attack enemies from a distance. Apart from that, the film shows the “Forgotten Land” turnstile and some of the mini-games that will be available there, such as fishing and running a shop.
A second person could play Bandana Waddle Dee, a dude who wields a spear and gets a lot of attention in the new teaser.
There’s a Kirby for every occasion
Kirby and the Forgotten Land was due out in the spring of 2022 (between March and June), although many fans were hoping for a release date in April, which coincides with the series’ 30th anniversary. However, a release date in March is acceptable to us. After all, Kirby Star Allies was released nearly four years ago, and it has been almost four years since the franchise’s last flagship release.
This future release should breathe new life into the character as well. Forgotten Land will not only be an open world adventure, but also the first completely 3D Kirby game. This newly discovered physical component should possibly give a new twist to the mascot’s platform and puzzle solving.
The setting of the new game is perhaps the strangest and most intriguing feature about it. In Kirby’s post-apocalyptic world there are no monsters or radioactive devastation, just overgrown shopping malls and accordingly enchanting ways to inhale.
