You can unlock upgrades for Waddle Dee Town upon the completion of certain requirements in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, growing the town bigger and bigger as you play. Here’s everything you need to know.
How to Upgrade Waddle Dee Town in Kirby and the Forgotten Land
There are three ways to unlock upgrades for Waddle Dee Town in the Nintendo Switch game. The first is the most obvious: collect a certain number of the Waddle Dees that are hidden in each level. You can check your count at any time by pressing + to open the menu.
The second way is by beating the three Cups at the Colosseum in Waddle Dee Town: Meta Knight Cup, The Ultimate Cup, and The Ultimate Cup Z. The final Cup doesn’t become available until you’ve played the game’s true ending, though, so you may be waiting a while to collect all of the town’s unlockables.
Lastly, some upgrades will unlock automatically as you progress through Kirby and the Forgotten Land’s main story.
