Kirby and the Forgotten Land for Nintendo Switch is out now

Get the pink puffball's new game for just £34.99.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is out now (25th March 2022) on Nintendo Switch. Developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo, the all-new 3D action platformer look super fun and a breath of fresh air thanks to its colourful world, cute characters and uplifting score. It's the perfect game to play as we enter spring.

Kirby's latest adventure transports you to an exciting new world filled with mysteries. There's new copy abilities to master like Drill and Ranger as well as local play options so you can play couch co-op with a friend or family member! If you're as pumped about it as me, you'll no doubt want to buy the new Kirby game. Plus there's a mouthful of pre-order bonuses still up for grabs, as well as some discounts that don't actually suck. There's even some new Kirby collectibles including cool plushies and exclusive figurines to celebrate the launch of the pink puffball's first full 3D mainline game.
