Kirby and the forgotten land arrives on March 25th, but as you may have seen the review embargo has fallen and the outlook is extremely positive. It seems that the cutest of IPs has transitioned to 3D pretty well, further increasing the anticipation for its release.
Digital Foundry has done its thing too, with a pretty entertaining 20 minute overview covering the game design, graphics, performance and all the analysis that we enjoy so much at the team.
The overall word in terms of performance is that it’s a nice looking game that holds a reliable 30 fps, with plenty of praise for the art design and technical execution. If a configuration has an “edge” in terms of picture quality, it may indeed be handheld mode, as some compromises may be more noticeable on a large TV; However, the general tone is positive.
Below is the summary from Digital Foundry:
Basically all of these ideas meld into something that I really enjoyed and that’s basically what I’m looking for in a 3D platformer these days. It’s not going to revolutionize the genre, but I don’t think it’s necessary – this is just solid platform action with beautiful graphics and an awesome soundtrack.
After covering so many triple-A heavy hitters over the past few months, I really enjoyed having the opportunity this week to relax and hang out with Kirby. It’s such a polished, complete game with a lot of heart that I think it deserves a try if you’re into that kind of experience.
There you have it. Planning on playing Kirby and the Forgotten Land this weekend?
