Earlier today, a brand-new trailer dropped for Kirby and the Forgotten Land, a Nintendo Switch exclusive set to release on March 25th. The trailer has a lot for Kirby fans to get excited about, including two-player co-op, some stunning looking locations, and what appears to be a fishing minigame. The trailer showed Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee fishing for just a brief second, but that clip was more than enough to get the internet excited. Some fans are just ecstatic about the prospect of fishing as Kirby, while others created fan art, or gave him his own fishing memes.
As of this writing, Nintendo has not revealed any specific details about the role fishing will play in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Of course, knowing how Kirby lore is, those fishing poles probably have an incredibly dark backstory, and are one of the last remaining human creations following our extinction. Either way, it’s still pretty adorable, and we won’t have to wait too long to find out more information since the game is releasing in just a few short months!
Keep reading to see what fans are saying about fishing in Kirby and the Forgotten Land!
The memes write themselves.
