Interesting indeed... However, I can't imagine the reason for presenting a wannabe-badass Kirby on the western packages instead of the cute little piece of pink(?) we see on the original japanese packages. What do you suggest?

Motto: "Guitars aren't just good for playing music; they can also be used to beat people's brains out!"
Weapon: Semi-Automatic Rifle
Hahaha, nice. So is Kirby just mad at the West or something?
One thing that caught my eye was the "A" rating on the first Japanese box-art, and for a split second I began to wonder if they got some, uh, extra content in the Eastern release :lol:
Hey, GEEWUN, hahaha, why don't you go ahead and share the slogan for the 3DS with everyone else?

Interesting, I wonder why they did that. Maybe to appeal to the boy audience with a "tough guy" while not totally losing the girl audience's "soft/cute puffball"?

While there are "badass" villains pictured (and many Kirby games have rather disturbing final bosses), I doubt that'd be enough to draw in the cute-hating boys. Things like PowerPuff Girls and Care Bears also have "badass" or even HORRIFYING villains, yet can't get away from the "girly" image.
