Kirby is venturing out to an all-new kind of adventure, and he’s bringing along his most trademark of skills! The Copy Ability is what gives Kirby all that versatility, letting him take on skills from enemies and providing plenty of cute hats. Naturally this cornerstone of the series is back in full force for Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which will not only introduce brand-new copy abilities, but will give existing ones some new techniques to suit the game’s 3D exploration. 

We’ve combed over trailers and other avenues of information, and have put together a list of all currently known copy abilities in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. We’ll be updating this list as more are revealed, all the way up to Forgotten Land’s March 25th release date.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
