Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the biggest game to ever hit the franchise, both in terms of scope and in terms of file size.
The Nintendo eShop listing reveals Kirby and the Forgotten Land to be on the larger size for a Nintendo first-party game. You’ll need 5.8GB of storage space on the Switch to download the digital version of the game. This makes Kirby and the Forgotten Land bigger than every other Kirby game ever made.
Admittedly, that’s not hard when the vast majority of Kirby games were made for various generations of GameBoy. As noted by Nintendo Life, the next largest Kirby game was Kirby Star Allies for the Switch at 4GB. Before that, Super Kirby Clash and Kirby Fighters 2 were both about 1.1GB. Super Mario Odyssey, a game that’s comparable to Forgotten Land in size and presentation, is around 5.6GB.
The 17th mainline Kirby game and the first to feature a fully 3D environment, Kirby and the Forgotten Land tasks everyone’s favorite pink puffball with rescuing the Waddle Dees from the ferocious Beast Pack. Kirby will come with his usual ability to both consume enemies and copy their abilities, while also taking his platforming prowess through a far larger world than Kirby’s ever experienced.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land arrives on March 25, just ahead of Kirby's 30th birthday. You can head over to the Kirby website for a free 30th-anniversary wallpaper, and expect some other things to appear as Nintendo celebrates Kirby's 30th anniversary on April 27.
And although Kirby and the Forgotten Land is usually aimed at kids, this game's rating is at least hinting at some dark turns for the franchise. The ESRB noted that Kirby gets a gun in the game, which warrants an E10 rating, while a PEGI 7 rating noted both "violence" and "fear" in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
