If you’ve been following the blog for the past few weeks I’m sure you already know that I have been highly addicted to Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
Quite frankly, I’m very impressed with the amount of variation in the gameplay in the game and I’m about to write about one my absolute favourite levels, being the level that I do all of my Star Coin grinding on.
Though I’m typically a mega fan of Kirby, loving almost every game I have played minus Tilt ‘n’ Tumble, I have to say that Kirby and the Forgotten Land has quickly become my all time favourite and I’m really not sure how Nintendo is going to top itself next, though I’m very excited.
Being that there aren’t many Kirby games on the Nintendo Switch, I have to say that I was aching for another Kirby game as I found Kirby Star Allies a bit too overwhelming and flashy, simply because there were too many characters to keep track of, having to put down that game while streaming on Twitch simply due to the fact that I could not focus on chat at the same time as playing it.
I also have to say that Kirby Star Allies felt a bit too easy for a game, which I understand as Kirby is typically an easier game to play, though I have to say that Kirby and the Forgotten Land actually challenged me at certain parts, especially with the final stage and few bosses.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land also itched a bunch of scratches I had, providing us with a new fleet of abilities as well as a completely new Mouthful Mode that allows players to become larger objects to do some very interesting things!
Not only that, Kirby and the Forgotten Land made my completionist heart whole by adding Missions into the game so folks like me didn’t have to scouring every nook and cranny aimlessly to actually acquire 100% in the game.
While not every player is not going to be Mission based and truthfully most players will probably not strive for a 100% completion, I had to share what I’ve discovered along the way to help you acquire that or to at least give you some tips and tricks for things you may not know how to do.
Admittedly, The Battle of Blizzard Bridge is one of the most straight forward levels of them all, but it does provide players with an epic amount of battles against mini-bosses, immediately making it my #1 favourite map.
The following guide will take you through everything you need to know about the Missions in The Battle of Blizzard Bridge including the Missions that are available to players, the hidden Capsules and even a nifty Blueprint that players will want in order to upgrade their Ice Ability!

SAVE THE HIDDEN WADDLE DEES
WADDLE DEE #1
Almost immediately after players enter the level they will have to take a hole to the left of the screen.
This is under the first part of the bridge, just after players come back from locating the Maxim Tomato.
Players will need to use the the Sword ability to chop down the Cone ability onto a moving platform and then must fall onto the next moving platform in order to get to a crack in the floor.
Use Cone Mouth to open this crack and there will be a Waddle Dee hidden in a chest.
WADDLE DEE #2
When players reach the second base of thee bridge, they will need to enter a hole to the right.
here players will have to use the Whirlwind ability to trigger a fan which will open a door to a Red/Pink Button with a star in it. This will raise a timed pathway to the garage door.
Quickly use Mouthful Mode on the Vending Machine and destroy the wall and reach the second Waddle Dee.
WADDLE DEE #3
Under the third structure there is a crevice that has a wooden button they can use a hammer on.
This will open a door to the left, take this door.
In here players will be faced with a time trial that will start as soon as players hit the first wooden button on the floor with the Hammer.
Players will have to hit the next two Wooden buttons very quickly and climb the ladder to use Mouthful Mode on the Car.
Take the car quickly across the floor and do the final jump and there’s your third Waddle Dee!
This part shouldn’t be too difficult, though due to the fact that it is timed, it can be anxiety inducing.
WADDLE DEE #4
The fourth Waddle Dee can feel tricky to get and will require players to fall into the void right after they return from collecting the third Waddle Dee.
Players will want to make sure that they are constantly hovering in this location as it can mean death, though players will be able to continously fly here as there is shockingly no constraint.
WADDLE DEE #5
Right at the end of the level before players claim the final Waddle Dees they will see a pathway to the right of this area.
Players will need to keep their eyes peeled as this is hidden right behind the lamp post.
Here players will have to do a jumping trial using a Pipe, though this is a bit complicated.
Essentially there will be an enemy that spawns repeatedly that players must use Ice on in order to push it into the cage.
Players must then rush to the Pipe in order to jump onto the planform that rises to crash through the wall.
This may take a few tries to get done correctly.
REMOVE 4 WANTED POSTERS
I have to admit that Wanted Poster quests are by far my least favourite kind of quest because I typically don’t see them on the wall.
I’m actually surprised I got them all in the first go in this level, but I’ll be honest located in fairly obvious places.
WANTED POSTER #1
The first Wanted Poster is located in the first area where the first Waddle Dee is.
For clarities sake, this is where you are the Cone in Mouthful Mode.
You can either remove it as the Cone or without an ability with your breath.
WANTED POSTER #2
The second Wanted Poster is located on the pathway out where the second Waddle Dee is.
Players will only be able to get this poster if they have saved the second Waddle Dee.
WANTED POSTER #3
Before players start the car time trial for the third Waddle Dee, players are going to want to head into the alcove in order to remove the Wanted Poster in here.
Players can use the Hammer to take it down, or no ability at all.
WANTED POSTER #4
Either before or after players rescue the final Waddle Dee they will have to hover in order to take down the last poster.
This is hidden behind the wall that players must crash through with the Pipe.
BEAT TWIN WILD FROSTY WITHOUT GETTING HIT
Simply put, in the battle against the Twin Wild Frosties, players will have to take no damage. This might not be possible for players at first and is best done with upgraded abilities.
TAKE A DETOUR AND FIND A MAXIM TOMATO
Upon spawning into the world players will immediately need to begin looking for the detour for the Maxim Tomato.
As depicted in the image above, this area is quite difficult to see and is simply a sliver in the fallen walls.
Players will have to squeeze through the crack in order to find a pathway that leads them to the Maxim Tomato.
The first Capsule is very easy to spot and will be on a platform shortly after players secure the second Waddle Dee.
Right before players exit the level and secure the final three Waddle Dees players will want to head to the small snow mound on the left in order to locate a sparkle that reveals the second Capsule.
FROSTY ICE BLUEPRINT
I must say that I’m very happy that the Frosty Ice Blueprint works in the way it does as I hate whenever you miss a Blueprint.
Luckily for players, the Frosty Ice Blueprint will immediately after they defeat the Twin Wild Frosty.
SECRET HARD MODE ON THE BATTLE OF BLIZZARD BRIDGE!
I truly cannot thank Derek enough for bringing this up in my comments section below as I would not have known that it existed without him.
In the first section, if players locate the Maxim Tomato they can actually scale the wall behind the Maxim Tomato. Admittedly, the camera does not work in your favour, so you may have to try to find this area for a bit longer than you hoped, but I promise you it is there.
Keep hovering until you land on a platform that will shift the focus on the camera and continue scaling the wall until you reach a path that takes you right.
At the end of this path is a yellow ladder that you must take to the top of the map, revealing a chest with a hidden Capsule.
Players must then jump through the Window and take a Warp Star that will continue to take players across the map while remaining on the top of the Bridge.
Players will be up against two of each mob, minus the Twin Wild Frosties, where there will be three.
Admittedly, this fight is quite a bit harder and I strongly recommend taking the Fire ability so you can keep a bit of range, though I suspect that the Whirlwind would also be a good idea as long as you have it upgraded far enough.
Quite frankly, I wouldn’t grind this difficulty over and over as it doesn’t seem you get as many Star Coins, however, locating the Waddle Dees and Capsules seems a lot easier as it will simply reveal these to you versus having you look for them.
But now I’m terribly curious, how many of you found this on your own? Did you need someone to tell you?
And again, thank you so much Derek for taking the time to let me know that this exists! I really wouldn’t have found this without your help! I had no idea that you could continue hovering up the wall and thought there was nothing there!
