Kirby seems to be named a certain way because Sakurai liked the sound of a harsh-sounding name juxtaposed with a soft and squishy character. I'm not sure exactly why Kirby, part of me believes it's in part to John Kirby's role in the Universal-Donkey Kong lawsuit, though that's speculation on my end, and who knows if Sakurai even knows about that lawsuit.

I just found out that Kirby Super Star and Kirby: Triple Deluxe have similar names in Japan.  The former is Kirby of the Stars: Super Deluxe, while the latter is Kirby of the Stars: Triple Deluxe.  Interesting, considering that Super Star and Triple Deluxe aren't that related.

Well, "Triple Deluxe" is a deliberate name, as a play on 3D (three dimensions). Not sure if they were thinking about the original Kirby Super Star though.

So...I plan to get Return to Dream Land pretty soon.  I see that there's the physical Wii version, and then there's the digital Wii U version.  I'm thinking I should get the digital version, but I'm not entirely sure.

Also, if I get the digital version on Wii U, can I use the GamePad to play?

So this is a thing for some reason. I guess they obeyed the people who said to stop porting Wii U games by porting a Wii game.

Even Kirby Air Ride for 3DS would've gotten me more excited, but oh well, maybe my friend can enjoy this game, since he's a Kirby fan and he criminally missed out on this one.

Managed to get some sweet merch from the Kirby Cafe gift shop during a recent trip to Japan, including a Kirby's Adventure-styled glass tumbler and the soundtrack. :D

The cafe itself was fully booked, disappointingly.
