Kirby and the Forgotten Land release trailer and demo

It is a bumper day for fans of the familiar pink blob as Kirby and the Forgotten releases a new trailer, as well as a playable demo.

Starting with the trailer, embedded below, and it’s billed as an overview.

We see a lot of the “new” world that Kirby is transported to which, as the trailer states, is “overrun by nature”. It looks a lot like our real world and we see rundown shopping centres, cities, amusement parks and more.

It’s a bit jarring seeing the ruins of a human world where the only life is Kirby and his enemies.

The visuals here are fantastic and are not only high fidelity and crisp, but also have a great art style. Comparing this against the recent Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Kirby and the Forgotten Land looks like some futuristic tech demo. Man, Legends Arceus is a rough looking game.

We get to see Kirby using various weapons such as a sword, bomb, tornado, fire, hammer, drill and ranger, which is basically a gun.

These attacks can be used to fight enemies as well as navigate the environment in this 3D platformer.

The meme that is Mouthful Mode is shown off again with the car, a traffic cone and even a ring shown to be inhaled and used in the game.

This trailer ends talking about amiibo support and the fact that all of them are compatible and will grant rewards, but those from the Kirby series will award more.

Strangely, on the eShop page for Kirby and the Forgotten Land, it has a button to “see all compatible amiibo” which links here.

The reason this is strange is that the second page asks you to select a game to see which amiibos are compatible, but Kirby and the Forgotten Land doesn’t show up yet.

Thankfully what does show up is the new free demo for the game, also accessible through the eShop.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land launches on 25th March only for the Nintendo Switch, so there’s quite a lot of time to play the demo before the full game is out.
