Kirby and the Forgotten Land Cheats, Tips Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include different ways in which you can gather Rare Stones and how to unlock the Weapons Shop. As well as these hints and tips, we also have a beginners guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Missed Waddle Dee's
Do not worry if you do not save every single Waddle Dee or complete every single Treasure Road level on your first run in a level. This is because when you beat a level but miss a Waddle Dee the game will tell you how to access it which means you can always return and get the missed Waddle Dee. Not only can you replay levels as many times as you want, but you can also return to previous levels after you beat the main story. Keep in mind you will be collecting plenty of Waddle Dee's in your travels anyway, so the likelihood is you will have freed enough of them to completely rebuild Waddle Dee Town.
Always Upgrade Copy Abilities
It is important that you upgrade each ability as you find their Blueprints. You can always find out where missed Blueprints are by going to the Wise Waddle Dee in the town square who will tell you their locations if you ask. Keep in mind that some upgrades are required for Treasure Road levels, so it is essential that you get them. You should be able to collect enough Star Coins and Rare Stones on your travels but if not you can always input Present Codes or compete in the Colosseum to make up the deficit. Take a look at our Copy Abilities Guide to find out about the various evolutions each Copy Ability has in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
More often than not the helpful items or things that are necessary to complete a mission in Kirby and the Forgotten Land are hidden in the nooks and crannies of each level. Make sure you keep an eye out for something that looks out of place and see if you can destroy it as doing so may reveal something you need. Even if a place initially appears out of reach have a look to see if there is a way you can get to it.
Get Amiibo Boosts
In Kirby and the Forgotten Land you can most Amiibo to unlock in-game rewards that will help you during the game. Keep in mind that Amiibo depicting characters from the developer, HAL Laboratory, will give you better rewards. Regardless if you have the Kirby line Amiboo or Smash Bros. Amiibo, the character will give out the same items. Take a look at our Amiibo Guide to find out more about this feature in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
Gather Rare Stones
As you travel through the map in Kirby and the Forgotten Land you will occasionally unlock special Treasure Road challenges. They will appear as a vortex in the sky and in order to complete them you need to reach the end while using a specific Copy Ability. If you manage to do so you will be rewarded with a Rare Stone which will help you to upgrade your Copy Abilities in the Waddle Dee Town. Most of these Treasure Road Challenges will appear once you have progressed a certain amount in the game while others will only unlock if Kirby flies over them and investigates an area. Take a look at our How to get Rare Stones guide to find out the different ways in which you can acquire them in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
Unlock the Weapons Shop
The Weapons Shop in Kirby and the Forgotten Land becomes unlocked when you have cleared all the levels in the Natural Plains area, this includes defeating the boss at the end. Once the Weapons Shop has been unlocked you will be able to upgrade Kirby's different Copy Abilities to make them stronger, faster, work further, or give some other perks. In order to do so though you will need the required number of Star Coins, Rare Stones, and possibly a Blueprint or other special item.
Practice your Copy Abilities
At the Weapons Shop you will be able to switch to any of Kirby's unlocked Copy Abilities by simply interacting with the figures that are there. In the far right of the room is the Mr. Sandbag doll which you can use to practice your Copy Ability powers on.
Heal at your Home
Don't forget that once you have freed 50 Waddle Dees you will unlock your house at the Waddle Dee Town which you can return to sleep on your bed there to regain health whenever you want.
