It hasn’t been long since the Switch’s last Kirby game, but the latest Nintendo Direct presentation confirms its upcoming successor, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe. More Kirby is always a good thing and Dream Land Deluxe looks like a promising return to the basics, but fans already have some questions over the newest installment in the series.
There's a growing lore to the Kirby games that has gotten considerably more complicated since the days when King Dedede was the ultimate evil. New, malevolent entities continue to plague Planet Popstar and beyond. In the case of Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Magolor that becomes the final boss.
Magolor begins as a harmless Dream Land inhabitant, but the corruption of his soul pushes him to dark places. Magolor is a devastating final boss in Return to Dream Land Deluxe, but he curiously becomes a trusted ally to Kirby in the more recent entries in the franchise, like Kirby Star Allies and Kirby Fighters 2.
