Kirby and the Forgotten Land Demo Impressions

Nintendo released a demo for Kirby and the Forgotten Land yesterday. I downloaded it, played it, and now have impressions to share with all of you. How is the demo for Kirby and the Forgotten Land on the Nintendo Switch?


Kirby and the Forgotten Land comes out later this month, but players can check the game out early with a demo on the eshop. As soon as I heard about the demo, I downloaded it. So how was it?

Well, first of all, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the best-looking Kirby game so far. The graphics are bright and very colorful.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land plays a lot like a 2D Kirby game but some areas are bigger and three dimensional. The camera follows Kirby so you don’t have to worry about messing around with it. This works well.

Best of all are Kirby’s transformations. He transforms a lot in the demo. We see him eat enemies to gain his regular transformations and…cars…soda machines…and traffic cones. These new temporary large transformations are very cool. As a car, Kirby can drive fast and break through small objects and large broken areas. The soda machine can spit sodas.


And the traffic cone can break areas that have cracks in them. This includes cracked pipes that will spurt water and get Kirby to higher ground!

There are also some boss battles that are epic! I won’t spoil them. You gotta see the final one of the demo. Whoa.

Overall, the demo isn’t very long, but its not too short either. There are three medium size stage to try out. You can also play co-op if you want. I did not get a chance to try that out.

There are two difficulty settings but neither one is too intense. Kirby and the Forgotten Land’s demo is a complete joy.

And going by the new trailer yesterday and the trailer at the end of this demo, the full game is going to be awesome!

What I’m trying to say is if you haven’t played the new Kirby demo yet, go do that! Its pure fun.

What do you think of Kirby and the Forgotten Land? Have you tried the demo yet?
