During the February 9, 2022 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo showed off what Mouthful Mode will look like in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The trailer is almost three minutes long. Unlike Copy Abilities that allow Kirby to obtain an enemy’s skills after he swallows them, Mouthful Mode will change how Kirby navigates the overworld.
The trailer shows off a variety of different forms that Kirby can take depending on what he swallows. For example, Vending Mouth (by swallowing a vending machine) will have him shoot out juice cans as projectile weapons. Car Mouth (by swallowing a car) allows him to travel faster. He can also damage boxes and attack enemies when he zooms around.
The more Waddle Dees you rescue in the game, the more Waddle Dee Town will grow. This will unlock new resources and buildings for you to explore. For example, you can upgrade your Copy Abilities. Fire turns into Volcano Fire, which can then turn into Dragon Fire. While Fire only pelts enemies with fire balls, Dragon Fire will allow Kirby to constantly breathe fire and even glide in the sky with wings.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land will launch worldwide on March 25, 2022. The game is also available for pre-order in the Nintendo eShop for $59.99.
