No, I understand that. I'm wondering about the katakana?

¿Are you asking about the use of katakana?

In the official page, is wrinting as カービィ

http://hicbc.com/tv/kirby/

Anyway, is "normal" in Japan (as far as i know) the use of katakana in "strange ways". For example in japanese words to "highlight". Like que use of capital letters. Sometimes, even japanese make mistakes when use the katakana.

And have in mind one fact, they try to put in kana the "sound" of a word, and don´t to transcribe the letters.

I´m not really sure about the question in fact :?:

Sorry to dig this one up but I asked my wife (who's Japanese) and it simply means a slightly shorter vowel sound with カービィ than with カービー。
