Kirby will need to save the hidden Waddle Dees in the Redgar Forbidden Lands before facing the Beast Pack’s Boss in Kirby & The Forgotten Land.
The Redgar Forbidden Lands is the sixth world of Kirby & The Forgotten Land, and Kirby will have his final showdown against the Beast Pack in the heat of this fiery volcano. Finding all the hidden Waddle Dees in this world requires a bit more puzzle-solving than in the previous levels, and Kirby will have to thoroughly explore each stage to rescue them all. In addition, players will need to save at least 32 Waddle Dees before they can unlock the final boss level and save Elfilin.
As the rescued Waddle Dees return to Kirby & The Forgotten Land’s Waddle Dee Town, they’ll rebuild the ruined village into a vibrant, bustling hub where Kirby can rest, shop, and play minigames. Most of Waddle Dee Town’s shops will likely be unlocked when players reach the Redgar Forbidden Lands. However, the Flash Fishing and Tilt-and-Roll Kirby minigames are the last facilities to be rebuilt in Waddle Dee Town, requiring 155 and 180 Waddle Dees.
