Alongside a new demo (downloadable now!), Nintendo has shared a fresh Overview trailer for Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The nearly six minute video details all that’s in store for Kirby, be it the strange world he’s found himself in or the skills at his disposal. Don’t let the cute and quaint vibes of Waddle Dee Town fool you, though… some familiar foes are here as well! 



While the majority of the trailer is familiar territory for anyone who’s kept up with the game, there are some new sights and sounds woven in. We get a peek at a few cutscenes, and the previously announced Meta Knight makes a grand entrance. We also get to see a few new Mouthful Modes and copy ability blueprints and evolutions. 

These copy abilities include the following: 


  • Meta Knight Sword
  • Wild Hammer
  • Deep Sleep
  • Storm Tornado
  • Time Crash


And the new Mouthful Modes are the following:


  • Stairs Mouth
  • Dome Mouth
  • Pipe Mouth


The other big reveal of this trailer is the full return of King Dedede! Previously shown in shadow, his new, feathered coat isn’t the only “new” thing he’s got going for him. His familiar hammer is looking a little cracked, but he’s also shown using a pillar to clobber that there Kirby. Not only that, but his design is looking a tad different this time around in general beyond what he’s wearing and wielding. What that might mean remains to be seen, but I’d wager the Beast Pack is involved…



Amiibo are also touched on briefly here, confirming that all figures can be tapped in for rewards like healing food items and Star Coins. Tapping any Kirby character amiibo, be it from their series or the Super Smash Bros. line, will get you more rewards than others! As another fun note, while the above trailer doesn’t feature him, checking the Japanese version also includes BoxBoy’s Qbby, due to also being from developer HAL Laboratory. 



Look forward to all of this and more when Kirby and the Forgotten Land releases on March 25th! In the meantime, you can read through our full, early preview of the now available demo.

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.
