With Kirby and The Forgotten Land just around the corner, it was safe to assume that the only Kirby-related news we’d get would come from the next installment in the series. However, that may not be the case. Twitter user Dededaio recently shared an image from a Japanese Nintendo magazine that could be hinting at the reveal of an unannounced Kirby game.
As Dededaio points out, the text in the image translates as: “The new issue will be released on Monday, February 21. In addition to detailed news on Kirby and The Forgotten Land, we’ve also included a new game you wouldn’t guess! I have a feeling a new title will be announced.”
Now, this quote could mean two very different things. It could be hinting at an unannounced Kirby game, or it could be hinting at a new game in general. However, with Kirby’s 30th anniversary upon us and Nintendo teasing “a variety of #Kirby30 activities coming soon”, this would be the perfect time for them to announce a new Kirby game.
Other than that, this rumor doesn’t seem to have any drawbacks. If the magazine’s claims are true, Nintendo fans are in for a surprise announcement of a new game, whether it’s Kirby-related or not.
