The page also compared the sales of Forgotten Land to previous Kirby titles. The 2014 3DS game Kirby Triple Deluxe had over 2 million units sold during its lifetime, while the 2018 Switch entry Kirby Star Allies almost reached 4 million units sold. Forgotten Land set a record in both quantity and speed, as it surpassed all prior entries and hit the 4 million mark in just 15 weeks after its release on March 25, 2022.

Forgotten Land is a new 3D action game where Kirby explores a mysterious world with abandoned buildings while rescuing Waddle Dees. The titular protagonist has a new Mouthful Mode that lets him swallow large objects like a car or a vending machine. The game also supports local co-op multiplayer.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is available worldwide on Nintendo Switch. People who have not bought the game yet can also download and play a demo for free via the Nintendo eShop.
