Kirby and the Forgotten Land is an upcoming 3D action platformer for Nintendo Switch that releases on March 25, 2022. Unlike many recent Kirby games, this isn't a sidescroller. It seems to take cues from Super Mario Odyssey, in that there are open spaces to explore with platforming elements to help you explore further.
What's more, it's been confirmed that this game supports local co-op. Player 1 takes command of Kirby while Player 2 controls Bandana Waddle Dee. Together, you and a friend work to defeat enemies, collect items, and explore the world. Here's how to claim your Kirby and the Forgotten Land preorder.

Kirby meets abandoned civilization

Kirby is best known for his ability to suck in enemies and then copy their attack styles. It looks like we've got several returning Copy Abilities as well as some new ones to look forward to. They'll likely help us reach new locations and solve puzzles in new ways.
