Plus the cheapest place to buy the beloved pink mascot’s new game.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is floating exclusively on to Nintendo Switch on 25th March 2022. The all-new 3D action platformer is set to be a breath of fresh air thanks to its colourful world, cute characters and uplifting score. It’s the perfect game to play as we enter spring.
With new copy abilities like Drill and Ranger as well as local play options, Kirby’s latest adventure transports you to an exciting new world filled with mysteries. If you’re as pumped about it as me, you’ll no doubt want to pre-order the new Kirby game so you can play it on launch day. Plus there’s a mouthful of pre-order bonuses up for grabs, as well as some early discounts that don’t actually suck. There’s even some new Kirby collectibles including cool plushies and exclusive figurines to celebrate the launch of the pink puffball’s first full 3D mainline game.
