Earlier today, Nintendo dropped a new trailer for Kirby and the Forgotten Land! While short, it provided us with some very interesting information. Most importantly, we learned the game’s release date is March 25th, 2022!
The trailer started off with snippets of gameplay featuring old abilities like Bomb, Tornado and Hammer. However, it doesn’t take long for our first big reveal to occur, turns out Kirby and the Forgotten Land is actually a two player experience. The game features co-op, and player two gets to play as Bandana Waddle Dee!
Our next big reveal came very soon after that, revealing that the game has a hub world called Waddle Dee Town. This town, as you’d expect, is filled with Waddle Dees as well as many buildings. So far, we know that you can play a restaurant minigame, fish, talk to a wise Waddle Dee for advice, and get figures from a machine.
After that, the trailer showed off two new abilities. One gives Kirby a drill helmet that allows him to dig and resurface. The other gives him this adorable little blunderbuss, which of course allows him to shoot projectiles! The trailer then shows off a little footage of new bosses and areas, and closes off with an encounter with Meta Knight!
Of course, if you want to see the trailer for yourself, you can watch the trailer below!
Author’s Note: I genuinely didn't think co-op would be in the game. Quite frankly though, I'm super glad I'm wrong! Everything about the game so far looks amazing to me and the idea of being able to play it with a pal just makes that even better! At this point I feel pretty confident saying it's my most anticipated game coming this year, which is definitely saying a lot. What do you think though? Let us know in the comments below!
