Kirby day is almost here! That’s right, we’re talking about Kirby and the Forgotten Land that’s set to release on Nintendo Switch on March 25. With our favourite pink gelatinous blob about to celebrate his 30th birthday, the best way to celebrate is by giving the little guy a (confetti) gun and slapping a party hat on him.
In Kirby and the Forgotten Land, our little pink man washes up on what appears to be a deserted land, where civilisation and nature have become entangled. You’ll join Kirby as he explores this mysterious world, jam-packed with new and familiar faces, such as the fox-like creatures called Garlfi and Waddle Dees. Along your adventure, you’ll encounter The Beast Pack, who have captured the Waddle Dees, so it’s up to you to free them using Kirby’s various new abilities.
Ever since the Nintendo Direct on February 10, fans have been buzzing about Kirby’s new Mouthful Mode, which is the stuff memes that are made of. While that may be the most exciting feature we’re looking forward to at the moment, there’s more.
Nintendo has blessed Kirby with a bunch of exciting new abilities that can all be utilised through the use of snazzy hats. Kirby has the option to don a tiara, a hard hat with a drill and one that looks like Link’s cap from Legend of Zelda to fight and make his way through the Forbidden Land. They even gave the walking blob a gun!
Where can you get Kirby and the Forgotten Land for cheap?
While Kirby and the Forgotten Land is selling for a RRP of $79.95, it appears that most Australian retailers have price matched each other down to $69, including Amazon Australia, Kogan and Catch to name a few.
You’ll find the cheapest copy at The Gamesmen for $68, while the priciest copy is sitting at EB Games for $79.95. Of course, if you do prefer to shop at EB Games, you can always ask to price match if you have a JB Hi-Fi, Big W or Target nearby.
If you’re a fan of pre-order goodies, then you’ll probably want to pre-order from either The Gamesmen or EB Games. Both retailers are offering three 5 x 5-inch prints as a pre-order bonus.
