We’re onto the fifth world and getting much closer to the end of the game, but let me tell you that the Originull Wasteland is just as interesting as all of the Worlds before.
If you’ve been following my gaming journey at all you know that I’m a bit of a mega fan of Kirby, being the proud owner of many of the games and simply adoring the little fluff ball aesthetically.
Months before the release of the game my Twitch community was getting hyped, with a bunch of my regulars speculating and waiting in anticipation for release. The anticipation built so much that I was unable to hold myself back and ended up playing the Demo, which I typically won’t do for games, but as I’m sure you already know… this game is amazing!
Truly, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has changed the way that Kirby works taking basic abilities and flipping them on their head by allowing players to upgrade them and even have access to a whole new range of abilities using Mouthful Mode.
While it’s quite impressive what the development team has come up with in terms of abilities, I have to say that my favourite update in the game is the addition of Missions.
As I’m sure everyone knows by now, I’m a we bit of a completionist, especially when it comes to games like Kirby. I have been known to refuse to put a game down until I see the 100% on my screen and Kirby and the Forgotten Land was no exception to this.
While at first I thought that I would be able to get through the game with no problem and with all of the Missions, this was not true in any means. Quite frankly, there were a number of bosses I struggled defeating the first time and many of the Missions that were available were a bit trickier to get than others, requiring me to have to come back so I could solidify my 100% goal.
I thought my journey would be a perfect opportunity for me to share with others how I managed to get 100% in the game, sharing the things I struggled with in hopes of helping you also achieve this.
The following guide is about The Wastes Where Life Began including all of the Missions and Capsules players can locate and complete in this level:
0:55 Flying Target #1
1:48 Flying Target #2
2:15 Capsule #1
2:46 Defeat the Lost Squishy
3:45 Flying Target #3
3:56 Capsule #2
4:20 Defeat Fleurina using Ring Mouth
4:58 Capsule #3
5:07 Waddle Dee #1
6:20 Waddle Dee #2
6:45 Capsule #4
7:00 Capsule #5
7:30 Waddle Dee #3
As is with all stages in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, players will receive 3 Waddle Dees simply for clearing the level.
It doesn’t matter how fast a player does this or how many Missions they complete.
SAVE THE HIDDEN WADDLE DEES
WADDLE DEE #1
The first Waddle Dee requires a number of steps in order to acquire and simply will need players to collect all of the green Diamond pieces in order to reveal.
The Diamond pieces are located in the following locations:
DIAMOND PIECE #1
Located behind the first snake you see, this Diamond piece is hidden in a chest.
DIAMOND PIECE #2
The second is hidden on the right hand side where players must hit 4 buttons to make it appear.
Players will have to follow an order to press these buttons, though a smoke path will lead the way.
DIAMOND PIECE #3
Players must take the time to blow away any sand piles they see using Ring Mouth.
The Diamond piece is hidden under a sand pile.
DIAMOND PIECE #4
On the left hand side of the map is another puzzle that players must complete, though instead of pushing buttons, players will have to use the Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode in order to activate 3 Windmills.
There is no order for this.
DIAMOND PIECE #5
The final Diamond piece will be granted when players kill Fleurina and will unlock the door that the Waddle Dee is hidden behind.
WADDLE DEE #2
When players are in the area where the tall metal structures that players must force to fall.
In order to force this fall players must get the Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode by swallowing the Ring just ahead of them and walk it back to blow the sand away from under it.
The Waddle Dee is hidden in the ground and will be easy to get.
WADDLE DEE #3
Similar to the previous Waddle Dee, players will have to force another metal structure to fall when they see a long crack in the floor by blowing the sand from under it.
Here players must wait for the metal structure to land, shattering the floor as there is a door that reveals a time challenge for players
Players must avoid being hit by all of the falling beams to obtain the hidden Waddle Dee.
SHOOT 3 FLYING TARGETS
This section can be a bit of a pain in the butt to complete as the Flying Targets are hidden quite well.
While I was able to locate them all, I have to admit that I still found them a bit… well too well hidden!
The following are their locations and they are all in the first section of the map, so make sure you have your Ranger Ability active throughout this whole section.
FLYING TARGET #1
Flying Target #1 is located just to the right of the Blue Button with a Star in it.
If you have pressed the Blue Button and have continued to travel through the level you have gone to far. Instead head to the right where there is a felled shipping container.
Climb this shipping container in order to make the first target visible and shoot at it.
FLYING TARGET #2
After players complete the first sequence with the Blue Buttons with a Star in them to get a green Diamond piece, players will need to head to the left where there is a Flying Target they can easily shoot down with Ranger.
FLYING TARGET #3
Just to the left of the Warp Star is the final Flying Target. Make sure you grab this before you progress as it is quite high up and has the potential to be missed.
Shooting this Flying Target will also reveal a Capsule.
DEFEAT THE LOST SQUISHY
Shotly after players gain access to the Mouthful Mode Ring Mouth players can continue heading to the left of the screen to locate a golden Squishy.
As sad as it may be to attack such a lonely Squishy, players will have to kill this Squishy in any means possible to get the hidden Mission.
DEFEAT FLEURINA USING RING MOUTH
I truthfully don’t think I wouldn’t have found this if I wasn’t known for messing about and trying to figure out what I could get away with.
Most players would assume that they would have to get to Fleurina by spitting out their Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode, but the reality is that they can take the Ring Mouth up to the Fleurina battle simply by jumping on the fallen lighthouse to the right of the screen then landing on a platform they can jump on and quickly jumping onto the platform with Fleurina on it.
The Ring Mouth makes this part a lot easier, so even if I was repeating this level I would 100% complete it this way again.
The first Capsule is hidden in the first area but will require players to obtain the Ring Mouth Mouthful Mode as it is located under a pile of Sand.
The pile of sand in question is directly in front of a sign that points left, though players are encouraged to remove any sand they see as typically there is a decent reward under it.
Right before players take the Warp Star there is a directional sign that faces right. Above it and to the right is a target that players need to shoot with the Ranger ability.
Doing so will reveal the second Capsule.
Right before players rescue the first Waddle Dee by climbing the shipping crates players will have to break some wooden boxes on the right to reveal a Capsule.
Immediately after players rescue the second Waddle Dee they can hop to the platform on the right to blow a bunch of sand away to reveal a Chest. This chest has a hidden Capsule.
Shortly after players locate the fourth Capsule they will reach an area where there is a crack in the floor.
After players smash this floor they will reveal a door that they can take, taking the door.
Allow the pillar to smash the floor in this room and make your way across the platforms without getting hit. Make sure you grab the final Capsule on your way to the final Waddle Dee.
CRYSTAL NEEDLE BLUEPRINT
After the battle with Fleurina players can head to the left of the ship in order to find a Chest that has the Crystal Needle Blueprint.
Make sure you grab this before you take the Warp Star!
