    2012 is the 20th Anniversary of Kirby, as Kirby's Dreamland was released on April 27th 1992
    In order to celebrate this, let us take a look at *most* of the angry kirby boxarts
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Let us not forget, the times when he was actually happy in America
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    What was the turning point in kirby's expression?
    As you can see in this timeline
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    The earliest game that kirby was made "hardcore" was Kirby's nightmare in dreamland
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Ever since then, we've never had a kirby game (where kirby has insides) with a happy faced boxart stateside, and probably never will :lol:
    So in truth, it's really 10 years of Angry Kirby, but hey it's still makes for a good laugh

    i thought, you post the boxarts in this thread.
    instead we just have a crappy drawing of a five year old plus a link to somewhere else.

    @mrgone
    better?
    I was feeling lazy...
    Anyways, I personally think that Air Ride and Squeak Squad's Boxarts are the most hilarious
    They literally changed no more than two things on kirby's face

    Why did the americans put kirby with an angry face? o.O
    Makes no sense seeing as most games it's pratically identical the image besides the eyes.

    The Amazing Mirror's Boxart has just reversed Red and Pink Kirby, if you look closely.

    Green Kirby seems also angry on both of these boxarts.
