Kirby is back with something new: his first-ever 3D game! Due to release on March 25, 2022, this is one game many players are really excited for. As with any other Kirby game, the cute pink protagonist has the ability to copy powers. But what copy ability powers does Kirby have in Kirby and the Forgotten Land? Let’s find out!

Every Copy Ability in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

There are 11 abilities for Kirby in this game, let’s see what each of them does.

  • Bomb: This ability sees Kirby rolling bombs like bowling balls which explode on contact with enemies or objects.
  • Crash: Kirby charges up his move and finally explodes, eliminating enemies. This one is so powerful that it can only be used once!

  • Cutter: With this ability, Kirby wears a hat with a sharp blade attached which he can use as a deadly boomerang. If the blade sticks into an object, it is brought back to him.
  • Drill: A new ability has been added! This one is pretty fun, and sees Kirby drill under the ground to find items. He can jump out of the ground and attack enemies from below, or dig a trench to create a larger area of explosion!

  • Fire: Kirby becomes a fire breather with this ability, which can obviously harm enemies, but it is also pretty useful! His fiery breath can light lanterns and reveal hidden things…
  • Hammer: Previous Kirby players may recognise this classic Kirby move. He slams his mallet down on to enemies and can activate switches.

  • Ice: Just like the fire-breathing ability, this one sees Kirby harness an elemental power to harm enemies. Activate this power to slide and skate on frozen feet. Kirby can freeze enemies into ice blocks, and then push those blocks into other enemies!
  • Ranger: Another new ability is introduced for Kirby. This ability allows Kirby to use a gun to shoot at enemies from a distance. Kirby can also charge up a bigger blast, but will need time to recover!

  • Spike: This ability gives Kirby long spikes which he uses to pick up enemies and break objects as he rolls around. This is an upgraded version of an ability seen in previous games.
  • Sword: Give Kirby a sword and he will thrust his blade at enemies, or spin to attack even faster!
