Free Pink Stylus for Kirby Canvas Curse Owners
« on: September 15, 2005, 07:43:14 AM »
Who says that only Japan gets all the cool goodies?

Upon the release of Kirby: Canvas Curse in Japan, the first copies of the game came with a special pink Kirby stylus. A lot of gamers were upset that the same was not offered outside the country. Well, it looks like things have changed. Nintendo of America is now giving away pink styli, presumably the same ones the Japanese got, to anybody who has registered their copy of Kirby: Canvas Curse on their website.    


To get your own stylus you'll have to be a My Nintendo member, which is free. You can sign up for My Nintendo on Nintendo's website. You'll also need to register your copy of Kirby: Canvas Curse, by plugging in the registration code that came with the game on Nintendo's website. Finally, you'll need to visit this page to claim your free pink Kirby stylus. Supplies are limited, so hurry up!

Thank you PGC!  I should expect to receive my stylus in four to six weeks.  w00t.

EDIT:  I actually wrote an e-mail complaining about the lack of a pink stylus when K:CC originally came out.  I'm glad to see I did some good.  Please, hold your applause.  Now, let's just hope that letter I wrote to Capcom regarding no GameCube version of Capcom Classics Collection will generate a similar response.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

It's very odd how Canada is getting screwed out of this when we got the Zelda Collector's Disc and Metroid Prime 2 demo.  Maybe due to how small the item is it's just not financially feasible to ship it to another country.  I hope that's the reason and this isn't the start of a new practice of excluding Canada.

It's on an insert in the case by the instruction manual.  It’s actually the back part of a Nintendo Power subscription card, so be sure not to throw it out by mistake.

I am another Canadian, woefully excluded.

Maybe Nintendo of Canada will do something about it soon?

No pink stylus? End of the world!

It's probably, as Ian said, too small to be worth the effort.

I really want one.  I hope we at least get the Phoenix Wright finger stylus.  NOC generally isnt very good about...well anything lol.  So im really doubting well be getting the stylus.  It probably is due to costs.  tehy are gunna lose a lot of money when they could have jsut made 600 forlike a penny and shipped it with the game...oh wel.

A meaty and resounding YES.
