Pretty sure it's the 4 buttons, Y X B A

 

Here's a different version of the logo with color that someone threw together, pretty neat

It's actually Kirby after he swallows a spider.

I miss my Super Nintendo.

I miss my Super Nintendo playing days.

I miss having not a care in the world other than where the fuck the DK coin could be in Squawk's Shaft.

There's a big difference between a show being good and a shoe being enjoyable.

Kirby swallows about 8 spiders per year, but mostly while using the sleep power.

Yeah, I always figured it was the four face buttons in their circle.

The Super Famicom logo is shaped a bit differently

Bascially the US took those 4 buttons and aligned them closer to what they would look like on the pad. The pic I shared was just someone applying those same color coordinates to the US look.

They represent the four elements: wind, water, fire, and the Super Nintendo entertainment system

Excellent choice of game as example box. Illusion of Gaia is one of my all-time favorites.

I don't have the original shirt, because I was a dumb kid and bought my copy from Toys R Us instead of Media Play (same damn parking lot, but Media Play included the shirt!).

However, my wife was kind enough to give me a surprise gift of an Illusion of Gaia shirt about 4 or 5 months ago. She had bought it ahead of time as a Christmas present, but then she came home one night and I had been drinking and was just letting a YouTube playlist of the Illusion of Gaia OST play on our tv. She thought I was amusing, so she went and got me the shirt out of her gift stash.
