I think that the look of the characters suits the game, actually. 0.o
It reminds me of the cutesy characters of HM:DS with its vibrant colors and semi-chibi style. :3 <3 Their heads seem to be more proportionate to their bodies here than in that game. Heehee. xD
Anyways, I am excited to see how the rest of the characters' appearances have changed. ^ o ^ I bet they are all adorable and squee-inspiring.
