King Poyo reigns. We swear fealty to he, the Almighty Pink. Quake in fear of his power, only a tenth as great as his cuteness. Kirby is supreme, and Kirby is victorious, because Kirby and the Forgotten Land is now officially the best-selling game in the franchise… in the UK.



This comes after the best launch in series history in the region, which propelled it to its new crown. The entry is also doing quite well internationally — estimates back from May put it back at 2.65 million worldwide sales only two weeks after the game came out, which is already more than any other entry in the series besides its immediate predecessor Star Allies (3.42 million) and the very original Kirby’s Dream Land on Game Boy (5.13 million). While it’s probably unlikely that the game will top the latter, the former is well within striking distance, especially if it has a good holiday season.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is out now. Our review describes it as a “high point for the series and a must-have for fans.”
