​Nintendo Refuses To Talk About Kirby’s Feet

Have you ever thought about Kirby's feet? Nintendo's pink gobbler always wears his shoes, always. What is he hiding? Are they gnarly? Beautiful? Tentacle-y? We don't know and we may never know, unless internal policy at Nintendo shifts.

Talking to Kotaku, chief creator at HAL Laboratory, the studio behind the Kirby games, Shinya Kumazaki refused to say: "I'm afraid the mysterious composition of Kirby's body is top secret."

Kotaku was asking because of this horrifying image:

Truly, the stuff of nightmares.

The anatomy of Nintendo characters has become hotly debated recently, like how big is Luigi's penis:

Or if Toad was wearing a hat or if that was just his head:

However, in that instance, Nintendo actually came out and confirmed that it was in fact his head and not a hat.

But Kumazaki wouldn't budge and the reality of Kirby's feet remains a mystery, for now. It's probably for the best, he realises as soon as he gives up the goods on the feet, the internet will just start asking if Kirby has a penis.

What do you think are in Kirby's shoes? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
