Kirby and the Lost Land

Kirby and the Lost Land has an official release date, revealed in the new trailer released by Nintendo: the game will be available on Nintendo Switch starting March 25. The news, however, does not end there.

Presented with a gameplay trailer during the latest Nintendo Direct, Kirby and the Lost Land will catapult us into an abandoned and unknown scenario, which we will have the task of exploring in search of the Waddle Dee kidnapped by the army of beasts.

"To save his friends, Kirby sets out on a journey with the curious Elfilin, whom he meets in the new world", reads the press release released by Nintendo .

+39 In an overwhelming adventure, players can use a variety of Kirby's abilities to battle enemies and navigate vibrant 3D worlds. A place awaits them where nature and civilizations of the past have merged to create a series of areas full of platforming challenges. When setting out to free the captive Waddle Dee, it can be helpful to explore every nook and cranny to save as many as possible along the way.

In addition to Kirby's iconic copy abilities, there will be some new additions to his repertoire: the Drill and Scout copy abilities. Drill allows you to dive into the ground and attack enemies from below with a massive blow, while the Scout skill allows you to see distant enemies.

Kirby may also have a co-star in his adventure. It is possible that a second player will join the journey as a Waddle Dee Helper. Players can launch a variety of attacks using his spear and can easily switch to two-player co-op on the same console by sharing a Joy-Con.

Kirby and the Lost Land, one of the bosses of the Kirby and the Lost Land campaign also introduces the City of Waddle Dee, which is the central hub of the adventure. The city will grow more and more based on the number of Waddle Dee saved. Several shops will open and players will be able to enjoy some of the citizens' favorite games. Kirby can also help out at Waddle Dee's bar.

Players will need to quickly prepare customer orders to keep them satisfied and aim for a high score. In Waddle Dee Town you can meet Erudito Waddle Dee who will offer helpful tips. By going online, based on global player data, you can get some details including the total number of Waddle Dee saved worldwide and the most popular copying ability at the time.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Kirby series and, for the occasion, a wallpaper can be downloaded HERE.

Kirby And The Forgotten Land Trailer Details Copy Abilities, Co-Op, March Release Date Revealed

Kirby and the Forgotten Land was only just announced back in September of last year, but thanks to a new trailer for the upcoming game released today, we know it’s releasing very soon. 

Kirby and the Forgotten Land was revealed as a Spring 2022 game, which could’ve placed its launch during any of the year’s earlier months, but today’s trailer reveals that it will be released on March 25. That’s just around the corner and it seems Nintendo is ready to reveal even more details about the game, with a gameplay trailer that showcases Kirby’s copy abilities and news that co-op will be a feature in the colorful (seemingly) post-apocalyptic title. 

“Join Kirby in an unforgettable journey on a delightful 3D platforming adventure,” the trailer’s description reads. “Explore in 3D stages as you discover a mysterious world. Inhale enemies to gain copy abilities like the new Drill and Ranger. Use these skills to save the kidnapped Waddle Dees from the Beast Pack. You can also bring along a second player to control Bandana Waddle Dee and take on the forgotten world.”

Breaking down some of the copy abilities we spotted in the trailer, it looks like Kirby can become a mage of sorts, a tornado, a hammer-wielding fighter (which Kirby can use to open up new areas), and of course, a sword-slashing warrior. 

As for what else is shown in the trailer, we also get a better look at the open-world-esque Forgotten Land. While it doesn’t appear to be completely open, we do see Kirby flying to different parts of the map, be it a city or a beach, landing, and immediately jumping into the action. The stages look quite big, too – somewhere between a level from Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario Odyssey. We also get a glimpse at an impending faceoff between Kirby and Meta Knight. 

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is looking great, and this trailer has us pumped to play it on Switch on March 25. For more, check out the original Kirby and the Forgotten Land reveal and then read about why one Game Informer editor thinks this game, and many others, makes 2022 an exciting year to be a Nintendo fan.
