I was examining and editing a group of sentences (for a video game) to check for any grammatical or spelling errors. There were a series of levels featuring different zoo animals crossing a dangerous road, and each level had a preliminary cutscene. In one of these scenes the sentence "Now the lion." appeared, and something possessed me to change that to "Now for the lion.".
I have since been asked if one is more 'correct' than the other and I now find myself questioning why I decided to make the change. Is "Now for the lion." more correct than "Now the lion." or is this simply a case of one sounding (subjectively) better than the other?
Does the phrase "Now the X." have a different meaning to "Now for the X."?
More precise context:
The exact original line (with formatting characters removed) is "Nice! I did it!, now the lion! be careful.", which I changed to "Nice! I did it! Now for the lion! Be careful.". It happens after completion of the level in which a player guides a monkey and before the level in which the player guides the lion. This line is spoken by the monkey.
