Kirby and the Forgotten Land: The Isolated Isles of Forgo Bay & All Leon’s Soul Pieces is a critically acclaimed action-adventure role-playing video game developed by Nintendo and released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021. The game stars Kirby, a pink puffball able to absorb his enemies’ abilities, as he tries to rescue Leon from an interspecie conflict that has broken out on Forgo Bay. The player will have to explore all 7 islands of the bay, collect Leon’s pieces of soul, and find a way to get them back before it’s too late!
Kirby and the Forgotten Land features traditional sidescrolling platformer elements combined with exploration, puzzles (some requiring thinking outside the box!), and many unique characters to interact with. As Kirby progresses through each island in search of Leon’s pieces of soul, he’ll also acquire new abilities from bosses he defeats and use them to traverse environments or defeat enemies. There are also various minigames throughout the game that Kirby must play in order to progress.
The player also has complete control over Kirby’s actions; he can choose which island he’d like to go explore first, what enemies he’d like to face or how they’d like to solve puzzles. This gives players a unique freedom of choice as they progress through the game.
The story of Kirby and the Forgotten Land follows Kirby as he attempts to save his friend Leon from an alien nation known as Duffers who invaded Forgo Bay. In order for him save Leon, Kirby must collect all seven pieces of Leonard’s soul scattered across seven isolated islands in Forgo Bay. As Kirby travels across these mysterious lands, not only will his quest take him into treacherous terrain but also into conflict between species at war. Before time runs
