As outlined in T3's review of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, the game switches up Kirby's traditional 2D side-scrolling gameplay for more open 3D environments. The game is brimming with colour and wonder alongside some superb power-ups that make for an enjoyable adventure.

Why pick up Kirby and the Forgotten Land on Switch?  

Kirby and the Forgotten Land sees the loveable pink protagonist thrown into a post-apocalyptic world via a spiralling wormhole, only to discover that all of the Waddle Dees (a peaceful species from Kirby's homeworld) are being taken prisoner by a new group of enemies called the "Beast Pack". With the help of Kirby's new mysterious friend Elfilin, a cute chinchilla-like creature, it's up to the duo to explore the land, save the caged Waddle Dees and take down the Beast Pack.  

While the game's challenge can be a bit lacking at times, it's still a thoroughly enjoyable platformer perfect for people of all ages. Young kids, in particular, will love the stunning bright visuals, while those with a busy schedule will appreciate its length with the game's main story taking anywhere from 10 to 12 hours to complete. 

There are also plenty of things to do after rolling credits, such as taking part in addictive mini-games in the new hub world, Waddle Dee Town, levelling up all of Kirby's new abilities or completing Treasure Road,  one-off side levels that focus on specific powers. 

Nintendo products never drop in value (only ever increasing in price from my experience), so it's well worth taking up this amazing deal (opens in new tab) if you are interested.
