You can also bring a friend to play as Bandana Waddle Dee and explore the world together.

Kirby is known for changing his games and abilities. In Kirby and the Forgotten Land, he is in a 3D platformer where he transforms into different shapes and sizes. This game is not a major change from his other games, but it is a new perspective on a classic Kirby formula. It successfully brings the things that fans love about Kirby into a fresh, yet familiar, new perspective.

Pros:
