This game looks amazing. Gives me Super Mario Odyssey vibes except in Kirby’s world. Mouthful mode is also pretty awesome.

I'm also interested in this version of Kirby, when I haven't been too stoked on Kirby in a while. My initial thoughts were "Super Kirby Odyssey" as well, and I think it works as a comparison for the jump of a traditionally simple game getting an open world treatment.

But I do think we'd be doing the game a disservice going in with Odyssey level expectations. Looking at more trailers, I don't think this game will be as large & varied as Odyssey. Not to mention mechanically, it kinda can't compete with Odyssey - the jumps, dashes, leaps, wall jumps, cappy bounces...that game had a lot of mechanical freedom. I think this will be one of the best Kirby games in a long time, but I do think we have to be careful about expectations going in.

I thought the levels look great and had plenty of variety such as deserts, snow and ice, dark neon levels, carnivals, water levels, and lush green areas. On top of that you have Waddle Dee Town that will grow as you rescue them and you get more resources to upgrade things. You also have mini games such as fishing.

Then you have mouthful mode which adds plenty of combat variety and different forms to try out. I think this game will end up being really good.

Kirby Developers Explain Why Forgotten Land Was a 'Breath of the Wild Moment' for the Series

Kirby franchise general director Shinya Kumazaki explains how Kirby and the Forgotten Land was transformative for Kirby, just as Breath of the Wild was for Zelda - but how it never would have happened without Kirby's Blowout Blast.

Woah, woah, woah. It was a step-up for sure, something akin to a Super Mario 3D World moment for Kirby, but I don't think it did anything so transformative as to be compared to something like BotW.

What is transformative in BOTW?

IanTH174d ago (Edited 174d ago )

In regards to the formula Zelda had been following for years, I think we can agree that BotW was quite transformative in comparison.

Kirby from his games was not at that level of transformation in Forgotten Land. It was very linear, bite sized levels akin to 3D World. It was a change, it was an improvement, it was a 2D to 3D Mario kind of jump. I used to say I was hoping K:FL would be his Mario Odyssey moment, but it became clear it was more in line with 3D World.

Very happy with the results.


Best Platformer of 2022

VGChartz's Christian Evans: "Considering the storied history of the platform game, and how many of the big gaming mascots - Mario, Sonic, and Crash of course spring to mind - are indelibly linked with the genre, there was quite a dearth of pure platformers as potential nominees for the title of best in 2022. Though many of the biggest releases last year that are categorized elsewhere incorporated platforming elements, as seen in the likes of Elden Ring and Bayonetta 3, to emphasise the importance of the mechanics to the industry, it was left to a few old-school mascots with a new lick of 3D paint (and a handful of indie efforts) to fly the flag in this category."
