Kirby gets powerful new copy abilities in ‘Kirby and the Forgotten Land’

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Nintendo have finally previewed new gameplay footage from the forthcoming platformer Kirby and the Forgotten Land at today’s Nintendo Direct presentation.

New features include Mouthful Mode, set-piece copy abilities that transform the pink boy into cars, vending machines, “a piercing cone,” and more absurdities that assist exploration—in three dimensions!

A new trailer also fleshes out the importance of Waddle Dee Town, a hub world that grows as Kirby saves Waddle Dee’s. In town, copy abilities can be “evolved,” enhance his arsenal and altering their appearance. Check out the new abilities and the beasts roaming the forgotten land in a new trailer below.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land launches on the Nintendo Switch on March 25. Pre-orders open on the Nintendo E-Shop today.
