Kirby is an incredibly fun franchise, and if you don’t like the pink puffball, we have to question your judgement ever so slightly. Okay, not everything is for everyone, but Nintendo’s pink little mascot is royalty in the world of action-platformers, and Kirby and the Forgotten Land is yet another adventure involving the blob that gives a whole new meaning to ‘you are what you eat’.
However, you might be wondering whether or not this adventure is one that you must walk alone, which is why we’ve put this Kirby and the Forgotten Land co-op guide together. Here, we explain how multiplayer works in this game, and what you can expect from bringing a friend along with you.
If you want to know more about this charming journey, make sure you check out our Kirby and the Forgotten Land copy abilities, Kirby characters, Kirby and the Forgotten Land capsules, and Kirby and the Forgotten Land pre-orders guides a once over. We also penned our initial thoughts over in our Kirby and the Forgotten Kingdom preview. We put this together after spending some time with the demo.
Does Kirby and the Forgotten Land have co-op?
The short answer is yes, Kirby and the Forgotten Land features cooperative play for you and a friend.
What is Kirby and the Forgotten Land co-op?
Kirby and the Forgotten Land co-op allows you and a friend to play together locally, which has one of you as Kirby, and the other as Bandana Waddle Dee.
To play in co-op, you need to complete the following steps:
- Start a stage
- Hit the ‘+’ button
- Choose to play co-operatively
- Connect a second joy-con
However, it’s important to bear in mind that Bandana Waddle Dee jumps rather than floats, and uses a spear to attack its foes.
