Float off on an all-new adventure as the powerful puffball, Kirby. Explore a mysterious new world either solo or with a friend, discover new Copy Abilities and battle a bevy of beasts in Kirby and the Forgotten Land on Nintendo Switch!
A New World to Explore
One day, a strange vortex appears in the sky over Planet Popstar, sucking in everything around it…including Kirby! Waking up in an abandoned world where civilisation and nature have become one, Kirby finds the Waddle Dees have been captured by a gang known as the Beast Pack.
Now, with his mystical new friend Elfilin by his side, Kirby sets off on a grand adventure in Kirby and the Forgotten Land to rescue the Waddle Dees and return home!
Save the Waddle Dees!
Discover many different regions, each with multiple levels to venture through and objectives to complete. Explore by running, jumping and climbing, then inhale enemies to either copy their abilities or spit them back out as projectiles against others!
Hunt High and Low
Hunt high and low for hidden areas and treasures, as well as secret objectives along the way. But watch out, because the Beast Pack won’t go down without a fight! Face off against the fierce bosses and defeat these fearsome foes once and for all.
Copy and Paste
Many of Kirby’s famous Copy Abilities are back, along with some new ones to boot! By inhaling certain enemies and gulping them down, you can put their powers to work. Use them to take down the opposition, and find hidden treasure and secrets too!
Join up with a pointy partner, Bandana Waddle Dee, in co-op play
Need a helping hand on your Kirby and the Forgotten Land adventure? Then pull in a friend for local co-op multiplayer and watch as Bandana Waddle Dee joins the action with his trusty spear!
You Are What You Eat
When Copy Abilities just aren’t enough, try Mouthful Mode on for size! Look for special objects throughout each Kirby and the Forgotten Land level for Kirby to use this new talent on: use Light-Bulb Mouth to light the way, Arch Mouth to glide through the air, Car Mouth to race past your enemies and many more.
Talk of the Town
Welcome to Waddle Dee Town! Take a breather here and watch it develop – the more Waddle Dees you save, the more they’ll expand what the town has to offer. Buy recovery and skill-boosting items from the Waddle Dee Café and Waddle Dee’s Item Shop, collect figurines from Gotcha Machine Alley, play a range of fun subgames and more!
Compatible With amiibo
You can tap any amiibo (sold separately) in the game to receive coins and items. Tapping Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede or Waddle Dee amiibo from the Kirby or Super Smash Bros. series will give you better rewards!
