The baton has been passed
Kirby first burst onto the scene with Kirby’s Dream Land, which launched for the Game Boy all the way back in 1992. That game managed to move 5.13 million units, and no other Kirby titles since have toppled it. Well, no other Kirby game until today, that is.
Nintendo has released their Q2 results for Fiscal Year 2023, and it provided an update on the total sales for Kirby and the Forgotten Land. According to Nintendo’s report, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has sold 5.27 million units so far. It took literally 3 decades, but Kirby’s debut game has finally been surpassed!
Even more impressive is the fact that Kirby and the Forgotten Land released in March of 2022. As Nintendo’s latest fiscal report ends with data up to Sept. 30th, 2022, Kirby and the Forgotten Land achieved its best-selling placement in roughly 7 months!
