Are you Playing Kirby and the Forgotten Land?

The video game Kirby and the Forgotten Land came out earlier this year and it shocked everyone with its quality. Many believed that it would be a good game, but certainly nothing too impressive. Nintendo went above and beyond with this one, not only with the graphics and brand new game mechanics, but with the sheer attention to detail and extensive story line. There are various adorable collectables and even a Waddle Dee Town that, throughout the progression of the game, becomes more lively and full of Waddle Dee’s and familiar characters.

The story starts off with all of the Waddle Dee’s being captured, and through the stages, there are 10 to find and unlock to save. There’s a list of “to-do’s” in a sense per level, which make you go back and explore new things about the stage in case you missed it. The boss fights were equally as fun as well as challenging, and it added to the satisfaction of checking off everything in that to-do list and beating the boss. There are countless things to do, like mini-levels throughout each new place you’re in on the map, from solving puzzles to beating the mini-level in the fastest time possible.

All of these things mentioned, and tons of other smaller things to do with their own rewards, is why it’s taken so long for casual players to finally beat the game. The graphics of the game are beautiful too, with gorgeous settings like an overgrown and rundown amusement park to a stunning frozen tundra city with ice and detailed snow mounds. Every level and new place on the map will leave you speechless. While Kirby and the Forgotten Land is so different from its predecessors, it’s definitely worth a try. There’s a free demo currently available on the Nintendo Switch store online if you’re not quite ready to purchase it. Download it and try it out for yourself!
