These Japanese Kirby Coffee Commercials Are Amazing

Kirby and the Forgotten Land has lit up the screens of Nintendo Switches since it launched early last month, drawing critical praise and selling like gangbusters. In fact, it's the biggest ever launch for Kirby, with the Forgotten Land shifting more than 380,000 copies in its first week in Japan, and racing to the number one spot in sales charts in the UK too. Meanwhile, in its native Japan Kirby has been having fun in a series of fun commercials.

As spotted by Nintendo Life, Kirby has teamed up with Suntory's Craft Boss Coffee brand, with a promotional website lovingly created, along with snazzy concept art that sells the idea of the commercials: Kirby jamming to the song "Green Greens" in four different styles. There are four separate commercials that find Kirby remixing the song in four styles: jazz, rock, chill, and pop, and they are a delight.

In our review of Kirby we said it was the best adventure yet in the series: "Kirby and the Forgotten Land proves that all those years of wishing for a 3D Kirby game wasn’t just hot air – although this isn’t a reinvention of the series, smart additions to the formula like blueprint upgrades and mouthful mode make this the best Kirby has been in years". However, if we were to review these little commercials, it would have to be a pretty positive one since they rock. I mean just check them out, or at least this following one, which is a personal fave.

There are three other commercials to enjoy, with Kirby rocking out like the best of them and throwing the guitar around; a pop one that's all synchronised dance moves and bubblegum; a super chill one that finds Kirby relaxing in a hammock on a tropical pastel beach; and a boppin' jazz Kirby rolling through the scales on a sax.

Watching them, you might feel a pang to satisfy your thirst with a nice bottle of Suntory Craft Boss Coffee but that might be difficult outside of Japan where these bottled coffees are big sellers, but hopefully the country someday soon opens up to visitors so that foreigners can go for a wander around a Don Quijote.
