Another Iconic Nintendo Character Turns 25: Celebrate at Lawson's!
Made of pink fluff, Kirby hardly seems like someone who could fight evil, but beneath the puffy, cute exterior lies the power to absorb the abilities of his friends and foes alike. The "Copy Ability" and colorful aesthetics of the game helped make Kirby one of the most beloved video game characters of all time, and he has since appeared in hundreds of standalone and crossover games in the past quarter century.
To celebrate his 25th birthday, there will be a number of sales and attractions throughout Japan, but probably the best and most consistent can be found at Lawson Convenience stores.
Last, but not least, is my favorite of the limited edition items: the Kirbyman.
So there you have it...
