    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    God, it reminded me of something one of my friends did in primary school. He started a 'PEN' Club, where you write PEN and your member number in big letters on your arm. He was PEN1, I was PEN2. We got up to 15, then a teacher saw what we were doing, and we had to stop.

    Good times...

    Last game I tried with this character on the front was a canny little platformer that was playable with no Japanese knowledge.

    Lol-no. Too many people around my schoolyard tell people to go to it, and now everyone knows about the content of it. Plus it's quite obvious when you type it without spaces.

    Fun fact: 1 is "ichi" in japanese, so this is a possible play on the name "Kenichi" with "Pen-ichi". Whether this is the actual protagonist's name or not remains to be seen/played.

    Yeah, if memory serves, it kinda was like a Castlevania-y-type game. Was contemplating checking this out... [​IMG]

    Isn't this a Mario Kart-esque racer spin off of that Castlevania-esque series?

    I might check this out later today. I really do like that pissed off Penguin as a mascot character.

    I wonder if (and this is a big if) Konami brings Penguin no Mondai to America, they'll edit all the box art to make him smile like Nintendo does Kirby.
