Dive Into 30 Years of Kirby in This GDC 2023 Session on 'Kirby and the Forgotten Land'

Close out the 30th anniversary of Dream Land's most-famous resident with this GDC 2023 design session from developers Shinya Kumazaki and Tatsuya Kamiyama about Kirby's multi-dimensional milestone year. Pink attire not required!  

The Many Dimensions of Kirby features Shinya Kumazaki and Tatsuya Kamiyama discussing Kirby and the Forgotten Land one year after its release—looking at how they brought traditional Kirby gameplay into a 3D world, as well as examining some of the new features in the game, including the fan-favorite Mouthful Mode.

This session is for any game developers interested in the history and legacy of one of the cutest (and most adaptable!) characters in video game history, as well as where Kirby and their series are headed in the future. View all GDC 2023 sessions here.
