Kirby and the Forgotten Land appears to have amiibo support, according to the Japanese Nintendo website. 

Originally spotted by Nintendo Life, the Japanese Nintendo store’s listing for the game features the phrase: "This software supports the following functions - amiibo." This could just mean you can use the existing Kirby amiibos with the game, or it could also mean that we are getting new ones to coincide with the game’s release.

This wouldn’t be too much of a stretch, especially considering that one amiibo collector recently shared on Reddit that they’ve noticed that some of the Kirby amiibos that already exist are up for pre-order again in Germany, with a delivery estimate of February 2022 - right before Kirby and the Forgotten Land is due to release.

If you’re not up to date on all things pink and round, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the next game in the mainline Kirby series, and was announced during September’s Nintendo Direct. The game’s release date was announced yesterday and you can expect to navigate an adorable post-apocalyptic world as the pink blob on March 25, 2022. 

Another thing that was cleared up during yesterday’s announcement was that Kirby and the Forgotten Land does have multiplayer - something theorized following the game’s reveal late last year. However, this is limited to couch co-op using one set of Joy-Cons, compared to the online coop that many fans were hoping for after the game was rated by the Australian rating board last year. 

Find out why Kirby and the Forgotten Land feels like the beginning of a new era for the Kirby series.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
