Kirby and the Forgotten Land is arriving on the Switch this March, but it turns out Nintendo might have a little bit more planned for the pink puff in the near future.
According to a translation by Twitter user Dededaio (as spotted by VGC), the upcoming February 21 issue of Japanese publication Nintendo Dream could possibly reveal a new game. It's apparently unclear if it would be another Kirby title or just a "new game" in general, but considering 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of this adorable mascot - there's a chance it could be Kirby-themed.
Here's the full translation of the teaser in the current January issue of Nintendo Dream, along with a picture of the same segment featuring a picture of Kirby and friends:
"New issue will release it on Monday, February 21. In addition to detailed news about Kirby and The Forgotten Land, we've also included a new game that we didn't expect!... I have a feeling that a new title will be announced"
Nintendo Life user Maxz notes the following about the above translation:
"A somewhat crucial line omitted from the translation is “なかったらゴメンね” (sorry if it isn’t [announced]). Hopefully something will be revealed, but there appears to be no guarantee. My reading of it is that it won’t necessarily be a Kirby game. まさか！？の新作タイトル reads like “a new title in THAT [series]!?” Technically the word ‘series’ isn’t mentioned, so “a new title for THAT!?” would be more accurate, but I assume that series is implied."
Last week Nintendo teased some upcoming activities for Kirby's 30th anniversary and also told fans to "stay tuned for news regarding #Kirby30 activities" - so yeah, it's likely going to be an exciting year for the pink puff.
