And a co-op mode. It is dropping no longer than March 25th.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a 3D platformer that takes players to a “mysterious world” where they use Kirby’s famous ability, inhaling enemies to steal their abilities. Some of the new ones include the Drill and Ranger. Players are trying to save the abducted Waddle Dees, and the game also supports co-op, with a second player controlling Bandana Waddle Dee.
The open-world approach includes a central hub called Waddle Dee Town. The town will develop more and more as Waddle Dees are recused. With the ability to play mini-games with inhabitants of the city, new shops will open up as the town expands. As an example, you’ll be able to lend a hand in the Waddle Dee Café by preparing customer orders to keep them satisfied.
The new trailer showcases many of the abilities that Kirby will be able to utilize during his adventures in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, as well as several of its eye-catching surroundings. With the Drill copy ability, Kirby can submerge into the ground to attack enemies from underneath. The Ranger copy ability specifically gives Kirby a long-range attack in a musket-styled gun to shoot enemies from afar.
