Kirby and the Forgotten Land has now been rated by ESRB

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has recently rated the forthcoming 3D Kirby adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land. A release date for the first 3D Kirby game in a long time has yet to be announced by Nintendo though it is scheduled to be released during the spring next year. The ESRB have given the game a rating of E for everyone which is for gamers aged 10+, so you can be assured that there won’t be any unwarranted violence in this particular Kirby game. Read on for the full ratings summary from the ESRB

Rating Summary:

This is an action-adventure game in which players help Kirby save kidnapped creatures from evil forces. Players traverse 3D platforms while collecting coins, solving puzzles, and using Kirby’s abilities to battle cartoony enemies (e.g., mushrooms, foxes, giant turtles). Players use swords, bombs, and blaster-type pistols to defeat enemies; some weapons allow players to use targeting/crosshairs for ranged firing. Boss battles can be frenetic, with laser fire, explosions, and projectiles flying at Kirby, often from a close-up perspective.

  1. How a game like this isn’t rated E for everyone is beyond me. Looney Tunes has more violence than this game and I’d be okay letting any kid watch it, lol.

    1. Kirby can have some dark lore if you dig for it. Plus it said something about guns. Are we going to get a gun Kirby?!

    1. Why ya asking about the sequel to a game we’ve barely seen, no they aren’t working on it before the first game out, soonest would be right after.

  2. I find it ironic that the series specifically designed to ease kids/new players into games is constantly getting the E+10 rating.

    I feel like the ESRB screws up a few too many times regarding game ratings. I played through the entirety of Mario Odyssey and still don’t see what about that game garners an E+10 rating when Mario LITERALLY DISINTEGRATES INTO DUST upon touching dark matter in the Galaxy games and those got away with E ratings. Same with LoZ: Phantom Hourglass getting E and LoZ: Spirit Tracks getting E+10 when one is really no more violent than the other (plus in PH Link sinks into lava when he falls into it versus ST where he jumps out of it with his butt on fire, which should be less disturbing to players).

    I dunno, I can’t help but feel like the ESRB is a joke sometimes.

  3. “The ESRB have given the game a rating of E for everyone which is for gamers aged 10+”

    Wait, is it rated E or rated E10+? There is a difference you know.
