Happy Week Kirby! It’s another busy day here at Nintendo Life with the launch of not only Kirby and the Forgotten Land but also Rune Factory 5. We liked Kirby and gave it a solid 9/10 in our review but were a little more critical of Run Factory, scoring 7/10 in our review.

In terms of news, we’re about to see the release of not one, but seven new games for the Wii U and 3DS, which is crazy. Activision/Blizzard is in trouble again, we’ve learned that The House of the Dead: Remake is getting Cowboy Mode, and NOA employee Samantha Robertson has left the company after 11 years on the job. Ugh!

Now it’s time to relax and discuss our game plans for the weekend. several metersmembers of the Nintendo Life team have done just that below, so feel free to read our entries and then join in with your own through our comment section. Enjoy

Like everyone else and their mom (and my mom is actually in this camp), I’ll be playing Kirby and the Forgotten Land. It’s so damn cute and innocent, which is honestly perfect for weekend play at the moment. Elsewhere on the Switch, I’m currently banging my head against an uphill battle in Triangle Strategy and stubbornly refusing to level up. I’ll crack and make it eventually!

Elsewhere I’m still terribly behind ancient ringi will play a little MLB Show 21 as a warm-up before MLB The Show 22; the new one will be almost identical to be honest, but it’s a dependency.

On Monday, I’ll get the Xbox Series X. It’s a lot like meeting the new kid in the family, and my Switch is the big brother who’s afraid they’ll be forgotten when the new arrival arrives. Don’t worry babe – I’m making my partner play Skyward Sword and he just got to the Earth Temple, so we’ll have plenty of time to hang out.

So when I’m not playing Elden Ring and waiting for Outer Wilds to come out on Switch (Come on), I’ll be playing Earthbound more. I think I just completed Fourside, and judging by the very cool guide I bought, I haven’t gotten very far in the game. But it’s damn hard, isn’t it? (And yes, that probably makes me the only person here who won’t be using Mouthful Mode on Kirby this weekend. I HAVE A DELAY, I’ll get to it eventually.

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend in the UK, so I’m going to spend quite a bit of time making sure my wife has a fun, relaxing couple of days as this is her first year as a mother. With that said, I’m not sure how much time I’ll be able to devote to gaming, but I’d like to spend some time with OlliOlli World since I lost it after a week or so.

This means, of course, that I won’t be playing Kirby and the Forgotten Land. I don’t know what’s wrong with the Kirby series, but it’s one of the few Nintendo mind games that I’ve never gotten along with. I recently tried the demo and even that wasn’t enough to convince me.

Like many Switch fans, I’ll be playing Kirby’s latest adventure this weekend. It’s actually been quite a while since I properly tried out the Kirby game after it was released. In fact, I was the last Indeed excited about the release of Nintendo DS 2008/09 Kirby Super Star Ultra. Yes, it was so long ago.

Based on what I’ve already played Kirby and the Forgotten Land, this is pink fluff perfection. I would even say that this is the best game in the series… it could be the best. Sure, it won’t be a big deal for any video game veteran, but it’s hard not to love the quality and fluidity of 3D action and platforming. The HAL laboratory team did an outstanding job! So most likely it will be this weekend – I think I can finish it before Sunday evening.

Darling shmap weekend ahead with both Andro Dunos II as well as Storm 4000 being downright brilliant for various reasons and absolutely must-have. Along with further Triangle Strategy drama I decided to stop postponing the original Valkyrie Chronicles long enough. Keep your head up, Alicia!

No need to guess what game of the week is: Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a HAL lab triumph in every way. Get ready to suck!
