New Kirby Switch game leaked before Nintendo Direct
Before today’s Nintendo Direct, a new Kirby the game for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite has been leaked. The leak comes straight from Nintendo itself, or, more specifically, from the official Nintendo Japan website, which lists Kirby: the discovery of the stars for a 2022 release. When exactly in 2022 the website is not disclosing, and at the moment nothing in the list confirms that it will be announced during today’s Nintendo Direct, but it is the waiting.
Unfortunately, details on the game itself are currently scarce. The key art that leaked with the roster suggests that the game may be in the open world, but for now, that’s just speculation, and based on the history of the series, it’s unlikely. The Kirby The series includes over 30 games to date and has sold nearly 40 million units in the process, placing it firmly in the top 50 best-selling game franchises of all time. That said, individually Kirby games don’t sell much, so don’t expect this to be Nintendo’s next big game. Kirby games are generally a smaller, experimental business.

At the time of publication, Nintendo has not addressed this leak in any capacity, and with today’s Nintendo Direct only a few hours away, this is unlikely to be the case. That said, we will continue to monitor the situation to see how it evolves and update the story with more information when and if it is provided.
