For those who don’t know Kirby and the Forgotten Land, it represents the first mainline Kirby game playable in 3D. The game sees Kirby transported to a mysterious new world, alongside the other inhabitants of Dream Land. The Waddle Dees have been kidnapped by a new group of villains known as the Beast Pack, and Kirby must defeat them to save his friends. In his quest, Kirby must use his mark copy abilities, but he also has the new Mouthful mode. This option allows Kirby to ingest larger objects, including road cones, soda machines, and more. The new game world includes locations such as abandoned malls, broken bridges, and empty amusement parks; a sorry Target store would fit in pretty well!
So far, reception at Kirby and the Forgotten Land seems strong enough. The game was released to high praise from critics, and fans seem to be very happy with the game so far. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the first Kirby game, and it looks like Nintendo has found a great way for gamers to celebrate the occasion.
