Well I've almost finished Forgotten Land. Still need to do the Ultimate Z Cup, and some completionist stuff like the gotcha machines, but the bulk of it is done. Feels like the third best game in the series with RtDL and Robobot just barely edging it out. A single player mode with BWD, Meta Knight, or Dedede might have moved it up to 2nd place given how solid already the core game is, but even so its an incredible effort for the first official 3D Kirby. Only real nitpicks are the lack of a quick restart for the main levels and meh aesthetics for the treasure road sections. I have to give compliments to the missions in levels/boss fights, which really incentivized replayability and rewarded exploration, though stuff like "no damage against the two Wildy Frosties" really underscores why a quick restart for stages should have been implemented as a QOL feature.
