Kirby and the Forgotten Land: How to Change the Game's Difficulty Setting

There are two difficulty options to choose from!

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is now available on Nintendo Switch! This 3D platformer challenges players to help a friendly pink ball named Kirby rescue Waddle Dees and defeat the Beast Pack. (You can learn more about the game in our review.)

Kirby and the Forgotten Land allows players to choose from two difficulty settings when they begin the game. Once players begin playing, they can switch between these two difficulty settings whenever they want when they’re on the game’s World Map screen or in Waddle Dee Town (players can’t change the game’s difficulty when they’re in the middle of a level).

The “Wild Mode” is the harder of the two difficulty settings. This mode allows players to collect more Star Coins, the game’s currency, but enemies will also be tougher.

The “Spring-Breeze Mode” is the easier difficulty setting. It gives Kirby much more health, and it makes enemies easier.
