In 2021 I will release another kind of weird game from HAL Egg! And please play Part time UFO! It’s a fun game that you will enjoy! Tell me what you think!
Suzuki also confessed his love for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He said he plays daily for about two hours. As a reminder, HAL Egg is a fairly new off-shoot by HAL Laboratory that focuses on smartphone gaming.

We will continue to work hard on our goal in 2021. This means that as many people as possible can enjoy themselves Kirby [games]. We have not only plans for games, but also for goods, books and a number of events as with Kirby Cafe. We hope you will continue to support both Kirby and HAL Laboratory in 2021!
