Welcome to the many faces of Kirby Superstar!

Kirby, the main star of the Kirby series from Nintendo and Hal Laboratories, is known for eating his enemies and friends to copy their abilities. This way he also gains a nice set of headware also known as Kirby hats. His friend Metaknight helps him out a bit. So he left his mask and cape at home to play with Kirby oldschool style.

Characters belong to Nintendo, Sony, LucasArts, GameFreak, Hal, Taito, Square Enix, Konami, Capcom and other people who I don't know or remember.
