Kirby and the Forgotten Land launches March 25th

Day one for me, easy. These games are always great.

Trailer looks really good. World map, fishing?

I can’t wait for this!!!……First Kirby 3D adventure, just like SM Odyssey…..it’s going to sell a truck load
I think that a lot of people have incorrectly interpreted the reveal trailer as being a fully 3D game. To me, it honestly looks extremely similar to the 3DS Kirby games but with some larger areas. The camera looks fixed in almost every shot, which is what makes these games inviting for casual gamers that get overwhelmed by full 3D platformers.

From what I've seen, I'd compare it to 3D World, not Odyssey. The game is even co-op, like 3D World so 99% sure the camera is fixed.

We ain't outta here in ten minutes, we won't need no rocket to fly through space
Works for me so far. There's so many games coming out in 2022, publishers are really gonna be fighting for spots, and for me Kirby is low priority. Week after Tunic, week before Weird West.
Those colors! Sunshine vibe!


Kirbygames cant be bad so getting it day 1, rushing through to see what the new speedrun mode is as usual, doubt it's gonna be as fast as fire metaknight in the last one but likely cool still.

Haven't been into Kirby in like 20 years, but that looks pretty great. With no new 3D Mario on the horizon this looks like it might be a good alternative.

Nintendo is dropping bombs all year.

Pokemon Arceus
Mario + Rabies 2
Kirby FW
Triangle Strategy
Advance Wars 1+2
Splatoon 3
Bayonetta 3

At a minimum.

Seems like I'll finally get to undust my Switch.
I'm in for Triangle , Bayonetta and Mario Rabbids. Will look for reviews and impressions around here regarding Kirby.

This looks excellent, I'll grab this for the other half as she loved the look of it from the prior trailer :)

Just looks at those beautiful visuals, and compare then to the new Pokemon.
Yeah I expect Xenoblade 3 to also make Arceus look like complete shit in comparison.

This will be my first Kirby game in years, it seems like the franchise is finally getting out of its routine, looks really good.
this looks way better than i imagined. awesome!

I did notice some frame drops during the explosion though

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Looks fun. The last Kirby game was... not so great.


Potentially might be my first ever Kirby game.

Overall it's a strong Q1 from Nintendo first party. If they continue with their "1 game per month' release schedule then we should have at least 5 more games announced and released this year.
Well, technically February has no Nintendo-published games at all, but March has two, so that's fine. I think Advance Wars was dated for April on eShop by mistake. So that's that. I don't know what would be May or June releases though. Splatoon perhaps. Hope they have a Direct soon so we know more of N's plans.
Oh yeah, I'm counting three bombas already.
Bayonetta has never sold well. But didn't stop me from claiming part 2 was the GOTY the year it came out. Kirby and Triangle will have modest success that covers their budgets. I doubt anything bombs other than Bayonetta. We'll see if that series gets the Switch bump or if its forever cursed.
