Starfy 6?
« on: October 29, 2011, 06:41:56 PM »
Well it's been 3 years since The Legendary Starfy came out...will there be a sixth game?! and if so, should it be for 3DS or for Wii/Wii U? I personally think it should stay as a handheld series.

Interestingly enough, it was asked in an interview with Nintendo and TOSE in 2009 whether there were any plans for a sixth game in the series where Hitoshi Yamagami of Nintendo replied "yes!" with a long pause and a laugh. This definitely doesn't imply that a sequel is coming, but suggests there probably might be one in the future. Nintendo also said this, so I suppose you could argue that TOSE, the developers would be the best people to ask.

I'd suspect it would probably be for Nintendo 3DS, I would love to play a new Starfy game. Curiously when TOSE were asked a sequel was going to be released on Wii, they replied that they would "most likely have to make it into a 3D game which would be a natural extension of the series and felt that such a thing would make things 'too complicated for the general kid-friendly audience". I'd also prefer a 3DS version for convenience, but I don't think a Wii/WiiU version would necessarily make it a bad idea because they could probably make it a '2.5D' style game like Kirby's Epic Yarn rather than set the game in a full 3D environment.

Oh I didn't know about that interview...but at least we have some kind of evidence that there could indeed be a sixth title in the making, and that would be awesome. The 3DS seems to be more likely but yeah if they make is on Wii/WiiU then 2.5D would probably be the way to go. A full 3D environment for a Starfy game would be a bit too "strange" in my opinion! xD but I don't think that TOSE would stray that far from the gameplay style that we have enjoyed throughout the five games so far.

I'm hoping that Nintendo announces a new ENGLISH Starfy game at E3. I loved "Starfy 5" and I really like the gameplay of Densetsu no Starfy 4, but I don't know Japanese, so some of it was ruined...
