Kirby and the forgotten land It has risen as the best launch of the saga in Japan. As they report through Famitsu, the 3D jump of the Bolita Rosa has managed to sell more than 380,000 copies in its first week, which has led him to overcome titles as massive and immutable as Mario Kart 8: Deluxe * * or the most recent Pokémon legends: Arceus **.
From Game Data Library, it is spoken that the forgotten land has been the best premiere of all the history of the series, with an increase of 70% on sales of Triple Deluxe of 3DS, in fourth position.
