The pink puffball will hit the Nintendo Switch soon! Nintendo published a brand new trailer for their latest entry in the Kirby series, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The trailer previews the 3D open-world areas, where players can freely explore.
The Kirby’s classic copy abilities such as Hammer, Bomb, Sword, Fire, and among others is making a return, together with two new copy abilities: Drill and Ranger. Er, well…”new” is a bit of a stretch, since Drill was a combination that could be done in Kirby 64.
A release date was also given in the trailer: March 25, 2022! It won’t be long until we get to explore the vast world with the pink puffball. In conjunction with the announcement, a special teaser site to celebrate Kirby’s 30th Anniversary is also opened.
