Walmart disappoints Nintendo fans with no apparent discount on Kirby and the Forgotten Lands

However, it seems this isn’t being followed in the case of Kirby and the Forgotten Lands. The game, which is conveniently available at $58.88, is being sold for the same price instead of receiving a discount that fans have been eagerly awaiting.

While the release of this game coincides with the same period as the release of Elden Ring, both games being released at the same time. Both games have received very positive feedback from the gaming community and have become a delight for gamers. Fans have started wondering about the fact that Elden Ring is almost $8 cheaper than the new Kirby game. Here are some reactions.

However, Wario later proved this price difference by stating that Elden Ring is an “unproven franchise” while Kirby is an “established proven franchise”.
