What is Kirby and the Forgotten Land?

For most for details on what this game is, just jump to our Kirby and the Forgotten Land preview.

But in the opening trailer, the world of Kirby and the Forgotten Land is very similar to ours, but the buildings and public spaces are overgrown with vegetation. Animals roam freely, but there are no people nearby. Waves crash against the beach, and Kirby wakes up on the sand, as if he had just been washed ashore.

Kirby then wanders through the overgrown urban landscape, and we see that parts of the road are destroyed, as well as the walls of some buildings, leaving debris and rebar scattered around. Despite the visible destruction, animals and Kirby’s standard enemies appear. The music is still typical of previous non-apocalyptic Kirby games.

And, perhaps the strangest thing, the whole colorful world is 3D. This is the first time we’ve gotten a full 3D Kirby platformer. It’s like Mario going 3D in the 90s or Dylan going electric in the 60s. This is a big deal for longtime Kirby fans.
