Kirby and The Forgotten Land is Kirby’s first fully-3D adventure, making for quite an exciting moment in the franchise’s history. Turns out those in the UK couldn’t agree more. In the UK, Kirby and The Forgotten Land was the #1 boxed release for the week, beating out the launch of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which took second.

There’s more going on here than just a first place finish for Kirby, though. Kirby and the Forgotten Land has seen the biggest ever Kirby launch in the UK by a big margin, and is already the fifth biggest Kirby game ever in the UK. This all happened after just one week of sales, and this achievement doesn’t include ANY digital figures!

This achievement is even more impressive when you realized Kirby and the Forgotten Land launched on Friday, meaning this chart includes just two days’ worth of sales data!

I've played the game for a bit and it doesn't seem THAT different from the 2D games.
More like they took 2D stages and made them linear, tube-like 3D stages.
