Goodbye! BoxBoy!

Goodbye! BoxBoy! is getting localized, and perhaps sooner than expected. Nintendo UK’s website is currently listing the game for a March 23 release.

As Bye-Bye BoxBoy! has not yet been officially announced for the west and the page leads to a 404 error, this is likely an unintentional leak from Nintendo. However, if it really is coming out in a few weeks though, we should be hearing about it very soon.

Nintendo released Goodbye! BoxBoy! in Japan last week. In turn, Famitsu caught up with a few of the game’s developers for a wrap-up interview. Director Yasuhiro Mukae, level designer Yutaka Watanabe, graphic designer Yusuke Ota, and programmer Takaaki Kawahara participated in the discussion.

The initial part of Famitsu’s interview touches on the start of the BoxBoy! series. Originally, the first game came about from a planning document Mukae created as part of a competition within HAL. He ended up as the series director, and determined how the project would be and what content it would have.

More footage has emerged from Goodbye! BoxBoy!, which arrived in Japan last week. You can see what the new Qbby amiibo unlocks below as well as the second Challenge World.

Goodbye! BoxBoy! has a few different Kirby costumes that can be unlocked with amiibo. Take a look at the various outfits below.

Nintendo and HAL Laboratory announced Goodbye! BoxBoy! last week. Now in its latest issue, Famitsu shares first details about the game.

Goodbye! BoxBoy! doesn’t make any radical changes to the series’ core mechanics. Just like the last two games, you’ll need to complete levels by creating boxes.

Qbby will have some new abilities this time around. One of these is the Box Rocket, allowing players to rise above from the ground. HAL Laboratory is also introducing the Box Bomb. Using this lets Qbby destroy objects such as spikes.
