Publisher Nintendo and developer HAL Laboratory have announced that Kirby And The Forgotten Land will launch for the Nintendo Switch on 25 March 2022.
Kirby has a flair for inhaling air, so he’ll have his work cut out for him when he arrives in an unknown land and discovers that Waddle Dees are being kidnapped in droves by the Beast Pack. To rescue the Waddle Dees, Kirby heads out on a journey with the curious Elfilin, whom he meets in the new world.
In this sweeping adventure, you’ll make use of a range of Kirby’s abilities to combat foes and navigate vibrant 3D environments. Progress through a world in which nature and a past civilization have fused in a series of areas packed with platforming challenges. When you set out to free the Waddle Dees from being held captive at the goal point at the end of each stage, you’ll want to explore every nook and cranny to rescue as many Waddle Dees along the way too.
The game also features co-op with a second player joining the journey as Bandana Waddle Dee. He can launch a variety of attacks using his spear.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land also introduces Waddle Dee Town, which will be the central hub of your adventure. The town will develop more and more based on the number of Waddle Dees you rescue as you progress. You will notice different shops opening and be able to enjoy some of the townsfolk’s favourite games. Kirby can even help out in the Waddle Dee Cafe.
