This is a game of kings. Try to pick something iconic or recognizable on the cover, a grey splotch from CoD Ghost probably won't be much fun for anyone to guess. If the guess is right I'd recommend a macro shot so people can marvel at the full art work together. You know the drill, help your boys and girls out if they're struggling. What I'll do, or anyone can do, is if it's been a day or two without guesses, post in here asking if someone wants to take a crack at it. If not, feel free to post another image. We aren't keeping score or anything. If the poster wants it guessed on, they'll probably be posting hints. Also if someone guessed it and hasn't posted the next one, again, tag them and see if they want to post an image, if non responsive jump in if you like.

Makes me think someone was parodying Piccolo from DBZ.

You got me on this one. I can only assume it's the Japanese cover art. As a boorish American, my knowledge of such things is limited at best. So, I'll take a back seat to guessing and a front seat to learning!

It's an American cover of a first party game.

Its release was two years after the original Dragon Ball.

The image disappeared, for the record. Someone didn't use Discord, but I will describe it

It was a clown man with orange hair.

Not sure if it's me staring at the pic too long but the pic is becoming very familiar. I still have no idea what game.

The article called it "Castlevania in feudal Japan." It does have a very Castlevania style to it.

What happens now @Yoshi, since nobody guessed it? Maybe you go again?

Not even a guess?

This game was released for two systems, with different covers for each one. Maybe you're more familiar with the other one.

Not gonna lie, @Best1989: I was stumped and cheated to find out the answer. As such, I'm barred from competing this round. But, I will offer a hint to those still trying to figure out this nightmare-of-a-title: I played it back in the day on the Nintendo DS and honestly didn't know it got a re-release on the Nintendo Switch.

I knew it looked familiar, but for some reason the two-platform hint made me lock in on DS and 3DS instead of DS and PSP, where Knights in the Nightmare was home.

@DarkFact Do you want to start a rule that if the winner doesn't post a new image within 24 hours, somebody else can just take their turn? This isn't directed at anyone in particular, some people just aren't as active on here and it can take a while before they catch up and post something. Sometimes we wait a few days, then they finally pop in and say somebody else can take their turn lol. Just seems like it would be a good way to keep the thread moving, since it's slowed down a bit.

It's like this, @SMY36738, only without the spaces and you actually have to type in the URL instead of the word "photolink":

Imgur doesn't allow hotlinking like that, right click the image, click copy image link, then paste in between these brackets with no space before and after:

{img}{img}

So it comes out like this
