With release dates only for Bravely Default 2 and Super Mario 3D World: Bowser's Fury, Nintendo's 2021 leaves a mystery for many. In HAL Labratory's recent statements on 4Gamer, translated by Siliconera, they mention working towards their goal for next year - for more people to enjoy Kirby games. The full quote from director Yumi Todo can be found here,
"We’ll keep working hard on our goal in 2021. That is, for as many people as possible to enjoy Kirby [games]. We have plans not only for games but also for merchandise, books, and a variety of events like with the Kirby Cafe," said Todo. "We hope you’ll continue to support both Kirby and HAL Laboratory in 2021!"
While it is not surefire to have a new Kirby game release in 2021, new Kirby content certainly seems to be on the horizon. Kirby fans, rejoice!
Author's Note: Any hopes you have for the next Kirby game? Personally, I'd love to see more Daroach. As for merchandise, more plushies of various Kirby characters always sounds good to me! Let us know what you'd like to see in the comments.
