Kirby Star Allies lore

To many hardcore Kirby fans, Kirby Star Allies is one of the more middling entries in the series. Though it isn’t bad by any means, its simple level design and less-than-fantastic performance drew criticism when it released in 2018. Thankfully, the game is no slouch when it comes to lore – it adds a ton of it to the Kirby franchise as a whole. Today, we’re recapping Kirby Star Allies lore and explaining everything you need to know about what it adds to the series.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land Present Codes

Kirby and the Forgotten Land just made it to Switch, and players can take advantage of several Present Codes. When registered in-game at Waddle Dee-liveries, they provide a variety of different items.

Of every franchise Nintendo is involved in, Kirby is the one with a reputation for its in-depth lore. Unlike other games, however, Kirby lore is rarely spelled out to the viewer – instead, it’s often implied with things like pause screen descriptions and the like. Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the first main series game in quite some time that lacks pause screen descriptions for bosses. This means that, compared to the other games, the game’s lore is a bit more front-and-center. There’s a lot to unpack here, and we figured we’d round up all the lore Kirby and the Forgotten Land has to offer. Do note that we’ll be discussing full game spoilers, so if for some reason you haven’t beaten the game, you might want to bookmark this page and come back later.

The album will be sold as both the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Sound Selection and Kirby and the Forgotten Land Complete Soundtrack. The former contains 33 tracks on a single CD while the latter features the complete soundtrack and other tracks across four CDs, along with some other goodies.

Kirby Car Mouth figure

Good Smile is readying a new Kirby Car Mouth figure as part of its Pop Up Parade line, and we now a the release window and pre-orders are open.

The figure is based on one of the transformations included in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. What we have here is a non-scale pre-painted figure made out of plastic. The main highlight is that it actually moves forward after being pulled back, so it’s a little more than just a collectible.
