I don't think it was definitely confirmed as Luigi's Mario Bros. boxart colour scheme, but it's the earliest use of that colour scheme. The Wrecking Crew boxart was a couple years later, although at least it's the same character.
Actually, the only one KDL2 predates is green Kirby. Blue Kirby was in Kirby's Adventure and Yellow Kirby was player 2 in Kirby's Dream Course (and as we know, yellow was also one of the colours considered for Kirby in the first place).
And wasn't the original Game Boy screen green? So we could say that even green Kirby predates KDL2!
Sorry dude, I don't think the SGB screen is the answer. After all, the Game Boy only had 4 colours. While DK appears first in a greenish tint on the Super Game Boy, I'm pretty sure the rest of the colour changes made to green DK are direct references to DK64's multiplayer mode (which seems to have been developed alongside SSB64).
Huh. I guess it's possible, but seeing as how even I have never heard of that console beyond that obscure SMB port, I'd say it's not plausible.
As far as I know, the PC-8800 series (personal/home computer, not a console) is well-known in Japan. The only question is whether the developers could have been aware of the PC-8800 release of Ice Climber and other PC-8800 incarnations of Nintendo games.
Well, I'm no longer convinced. Not because it's so obscure, (Keep in mind there were about four or five Ice Climber games they COULD have referenced.) but if it was a reference, they probably would have included dark blue Popo with the costume too. See what I'm getting at?
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

Shrikeswind: Anyways I'm back and I'm gonna get started on the Christmas thread soon. Any suggestions for this year?

Shrikeswind: Can't be an advent calendar of any sort, considering how late I am.

nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Still coughing my lungs up, but yeah, doing a lot better now that it's past tense.

Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Nester the Lark: I've got ideas for some posts I want to make. Now if only I could make time to actually write them...

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

nocturnal YL: Finally finished Metroid Dread. It's an alright game.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
