The latest installment in the longrunning Kirby series debuted to good sales in Japan and the UK and is on pace to become at least one of the bestselling games in the franchise, if not the best one. For reference, the previous game Kirby Star Allies hit 2.56m by March 2019 and has legged it out to above 3m by now. The first title in the series, Kirby's Dream Land on the Game Boy, is the only one to cross the 5m mark.
What are your lifetime sales expectations for Kirby and the Forgotten Land?
Bonus question: If you have already played the new Kirby game, what are your thoughts? Is it worthy of the perfect 10 that it received from VGChartz?
The best selling Kirby game is Kirby's Dream Land, the original title for the Gameboy. It sold just over 5 million copies. The second best selling game is Star Allies at just over 3 million.
I chose a conservative estimate of over 4M, but, in all honesty, I think that this title, like most other Switch titles, could end up becoming the best selling entry in the Kirby franchise.
Bonus: I vehemently disagree with the score that VGChartz gave. After a whopping three hours with the game I'd give it a 13/10. Was really disappointed with the review score despite the content being spot on.
