INNO DAY: OPPO svela le nuove tecnologie

HAL’s pink ball pops out in 3D from mid Advent Calendar window for second review of Kirby and the Lost Land

We are more or less at the halfway point: in pseudo-review today we’ll take a second look at one of the best titles of the year for Nintendo Switchthat is to say Kirby and the Lost Land. Adapting the formula to free movement in 3D was a challenge HAL it has set itself practically for twenty-two years. Ever since that fateful 64: The Crystal Shards in 2000, fans of the Pink Terror have been clamoring to see a true three-dimensional debut for the rounded hero. And after the first steps on Nintendo 3DS with Kirby 3D Challenge (Planet Robobot) and the standalone expansion Blowout Blast, HAL’s sphere of wonders has started to run.

Kirby and the Lost Land, thirteenth review of the Nintendo Switch Calendar

Clearly, the premise of an inflatable hero capable of flying at will is difficult to render in three dimensions without falling into extreme ease. For this reason, HAL has treasured Masahiro Sakurai’s original idea for Dream Land: all that is needed is to be able to avoid sudden deaths by falling into the abyss. Once this conclusion is reached, the development team he gave his best in game design: menu disguised as a central hub, levels more alive than ever as real places, a crazier than usual endgame and, above all, a very innovative approach to skills, reduced only in quantity.

The powers at our disposal are no more than twelve. Or rather, they are through the various upgrade available to the player, as he scours the game’s levels from top to bottom in search of blueprints to upgrade weapons, between one Waddle Dee to rescue and another. Inputs have been streamlined to accommodate the game’s three-dimensional environment (something Smash fans looking forward to a fully 3D episode would do well to remember), contributing to a much more relaxed adventure (postgame permitting) than others. In general, between mini-games and additional skills through Boccomorphosisthis is a title that very simply it’s good for the heart every time you start it. And the series has had its redemption ai Game Awardswhen Lost Land won the title of Family Game of the Year 2022.
