Many developers have shared their outlook on this year along with ambitions for 2021. Kirby and HAL director Shinya Kumazaki is among those developers and shares interesting tidbits about the coming year! According to Kumazaki, HAL will be hard at work on their next project in 2021 and “suspects it’ll be done before we know it”. Additionally, he says fans should look forward to Kirby and everything else HAL has to offer next year:

“Though I can’t talk about our next game yet, HAL actually turned 40 this year! We’re trying to figure out what people want to see from us and what our next challenge should be. There are many things a creator can strive toward, and they’re all enjoyable. We’ll take that feeling and tackle 2021 head-on.

Kirby turns 29 in 2021. While fans enjoy our games and merch, we’ll be hard at work on the next project and I suspect it’ll be done before we know it. Please look forward to Kirby and everything else HAL has to offer in 2021!”
