Announced during last E3, Kirby and the Forgotten World had been very discreet for several months now … But Nintendo has just revealed the release date for this Switch episode, radically different from the canons of the franchise. Announcement for next March, this new title will feature one of Nintendo’s mascots in a whole new genre of platformer.
New look for a new dimension
It’s a radical change that awaits the little pink ball for this new title on the hybrid console. Yes Kirby and the Forgotten World takes the codes of the other games of the franchise, this episode also introduces a whole new perspective, swapping the horizontal scrolling in 2D for a platform game in 3D, with all the camera changes that the genre requires. This is the first time that Kirby has found himself in such a style of play after more than thirty years in the stars of the platformer at scrolling classic horizontal — and that’s welcome.
Alone or in duo
This new episode will see Kirby go to the rescue of his friends Waddle Dees, threatened by a pack of beasts determined to capture them all one by one. Rest assured, Kirby retains his usual powers: he can always swallow his enemies and absorb their powers in the purest tradition of the series. A second player can also join the game by controlling Banana Waddle Dee for local co-op play.
With this brand new game structure, Kirby and the Forgotten World hosts a main hub to explore: a village populated by Waddle Dees with whom Kirby can presumably chat — so much so he has been silent for his thirty-year career. The levels will be accessible from the star in the center of the main square, and mini-games will also be part of the game, including a management game. food truck and fishing.
Kirby and the Forgotten World is expected on March 23, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
