Analysis: a Kirby for all events
We knew Kirby and the Forgotten Land can be rearing its head someday in Spring 2022 (that is between March and June), though many anticipated an April release date to align with the thirtieth anniversary of the series. A March release date is ok by us, although. After all, it’s been almost 4 years since the franchise’s final mainline release, with Kirby Star Allies launching again in 2018.
This upcoming title ought to squeeze some contemporary juice into the character, too. Not solely will Forgotten Land be an open-world journey, but it surely’s additionally the first Kirby sport to be absolutely 3D. That additional bodily dimension ought to hopefully add a new twist to the mascot’s platforming and puzzling, too.
Maybe the weirdest, and most attractive facet of the upcoming sport is its setting. In Kirby’s publish-apocalyptic world, you gained’t discover any zombies or nuclear fallout right here, however as a substitute overgrown procuring malls and appropriately cute critters to inhale.
