For my money, this is easily among the best Switch platformers Nintendo has released. Forgotten Land gave Kirby the reinvention that he desperately needed. I’ve loved this series for so long, but it undeniably was getting incredibly stale. Everything here feels fresh, from the overgrown urban motifs to the 3D platforming format.
From a value perspective, this may be the best platformer on Switch. After all, it’s effectively an infinite Mario game. Building upon the foundation of Super Mario Maker 1, the sequel blows the doors off the creative possibilities.
