Wondering how to unlock the Colosseum in Kirby and the Forgotten Land? We've got you covered.

In Kirby and the Forgotten Land, the Colosseum is an unlockable facility in Waddle Dee Town that allows players to enter tournament cups consisting of boss battles with foes that have appeared throughout the franchise. With the highly-anticipated action-platformer game finally out now for Nintendo Switch, here's a breakdown of how to unlock the Colosseum in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.

Colosseum Kirby and the Forgotten Land Unlock Guide

In order to unlock the Colosseum, players simply need to complete Danger Under the Big Top, which is the final stage of the third area of the game, Wondaria Remains.

Being that Danger Under the Big Top is a final stage, that also means that it requires players to rescue a certain number of Waddle Dees from that specific area's other stages before becoming available.

Additionally, that also means that Danger Under the Big Top has a boss that players must defeat, which in this case is the cheetah-turned-circus star Clawroline.

Once players have felled Clawroline, effectively clearing both Danger Under the Big Top and Wondaria Remains, the Colosseum will be up and running in Waddle Dee Town.

From Gorimondo to Meta Knight, the Colosseum is the place to be for those looking to face a rush of bosses in exchange for rewards such as new Copy Ability Blueprints.

After beating the main story and viewing the credits, players will also unlock The Ultimate Cup at the Colosseum, which grants the Vol. 4 Ultimate Life-Form Fecto Elfilis figure once bested.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land was released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on March 25, 2022.
