Kirby and the Forgotten Land is coming to Switch next year

One of the bigger surprises of Nintendo’s latest Direct was a brand new Kirby game – a game that throws the cute pink ball in a post apocalyptic world.

It is called Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and it appears to be a 3D exploration title about a world that has been largely abandoned. Nintendo describes it as “a mysterious world full of abandoned buildings from an earlier civilization.” It certainly looks less cheerful and cheerful compared to his previous adventures, although Kirby still has the ability to absorb the powers of others and wear cute outfits, fighting some familiar enemies along the way.

News of the game actually leaked a little earlier in the day. When it debuts, the game will be added to a growing list of Kirby titles on the Switch, including: Kirby Star Allies, Super Kirby Clash and Kirby Fighters 2.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is coming to Switch in Spring 2022.
