Kirby and the Forgotten Land demo

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is coming to the Nintendo Switch on March 25th, but fans don’t have to wait until then to start playing. That’s right, there is a FREE demo available on the Nintendo eShop right now that even allows you to try out Mouthful Mode. I attended a preview (thanks Nintendo!) and I promise you this game is going to be an absolute blast!

Join Kirby in an unforgettable journey through a mysterious world in a 3D platforming adventure Float off on an all-new adventure as the powerful puffball, Kirby. Explore in 3D stages as you discover a mysterious world with abandoned structures from a past civilization – like a shopping mall?!

Copy enemies’ abilities like the new Drill and Ranger and use them to attack, explore your surroundings, and save the kidnapped Waddle Dees from the ferocious Beast Pack alongside the mysterious Elfilin. Hope you’re hungry for an unforgettable adventure!

Kirby and the Forgotten Land co-op

If you have been following me for a while, you know what part of Kirby and the Forgotten Land I am most excited for. Players will be able to join up with a pointy partner, Bandana Waddle Dee, in co-op play! There are not enough couch co-op games for families that like to game together, so we are very excited about this aspect of the newest Kirby game.

Pass a Joy-Con controller to a buddy to play as the spear-wielding Bandana Waddle Dee and help each other explore and battle through this colorful world. While Kirby can float and inhale enemies, Bandana Waddle Dee can spin and stab with his sturdy spear. Find friendship in this forgotten world and save the Waddle Dees!

Float over obstacles and fight through enemies on your way to each stage’s goal as you slash, poke, freeze, and hammer using Kirby’s copy abilities.

Each themed stage you travel through will hide several friendly Waddle Dees in peril! Save them to grow the home base of your adventure, the once-deserted Waddle Dee Town. The Waddle Dees you rescue will unlock shops and leaderboards. You’ll also be able to enjoy some of the townsfolk’s favorite games.

I have to admit, the fact that the town changes, the more you save Waddle Dees is a great touch, and I know it will be a lot of fun to explore.

Mouthful Mode

Feeling hungry? Kirby can inhale real-world objects and transform using Mouthful Mode! Why get one drink from a vending machine when you can swallow the whole thing? Then, use your boxy body to shoot out cans at baddies. Consume a car to gain some wheels and slam through walls. Sit back and take it all in…literally.

At the Kirby and the Forgotten Land demo I got to see a few of these Kirby objects in action, and I must say the vending machine is my favorite! I cannot wait to dive into this game with my family because I know we are going to have so much fun.
