Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (Japanese: 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U), known informally as Super Smash Bros. 4 are the latest games in the Super Smash Bros. series for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, developed by Bandai Namco Games (when this was originally announced the company was known outside of Japan as Namco Bandai Games). They are the successors to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. A fourth entry in the Super Smash Bros. series was first hinted at in passing by Satoru Iwata at E3 2011 but development on the games had actually began later, after the release of Kid Icarus Uprising.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was officially released on September 13, 2014 in Japan and on October 3, 2014 in North America and Europe, but some people got the Japanese game early. [1][2][3] Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was released on December 6, 2014 in Japan, November 29, 2014 in Australia, November 21, 2014 in North America and November 28, 2014 in Europe.[4]

Relevance to the Legendary Starfy series

Starfy is an Assist Trophy in both Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as he is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Starfy walks around the stage and performs Star Spins before disappearing or falling off the stage. He can be attacked and can receive knockback in both the Nintendo 3DS version and the Wii U version. If defeated, he may tumble in the air while turning around clockwise with his back facing the screen, but the melody that normally plays in the Legendary Starfy series when Starfy or Starly is defeated does not play.

The melody based on the beginning of Confrontation with the Boss from Super Smash Bros. Brawl also plays when Starfy appears in both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U version.

Starfy re-appears as a regular trophy in at least Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, as originally seen in a pre-release screenshot of All-Star Mode that was posted by game director Masahiro Sakurai on Miiverse.[5] Among the places the Starfy trophy can be obtained include Classic Mode, the trophy shop[6], and possibly on the ground, as seen in the previously mentioned screenshot.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Starfy appears as a profile icon among Assist Trophies.

Trophy description

Name Image English description
(EU version)
Japanese description Literal translation Kaphotics' text dump translation
Starfy SSB3DS Starfy trophy EU.png Starfy is Pufftop Kingdom's scatterbrained prince and the hero of The Legendary Starfy. He looks like a star, or maybe a starfish - no one knows what he really is. When released, he'll boldly attack enemies with his Star Spin. It's not a very powerful attack, but at least he's trying! 伝説のスタフィー』にとうじょう登場した、かぶ王国テンカイ王子。ドジでおっちょこちょいとちょっぴりりないところももあるが、 がんばり。 おさまのような、ヒトテのような姿すと、くにいるファイターにかって果敢スピンアッタック攻撃してくれる。威力くはないがってがんばってくれるのだ。

[7]

Debuting in "Densetsu no Starfy", he is the prince of the kingdom Tenkai that floats in the sky. He is a little careless and clumsy, but he does his best. He is a creature like a star appearing as a starfish. When called, he will Spin Attack boldly towards the fighters who are nearby. His power is not high, but he tries hard to give his body a stretch.(?) Starfy is the absentminded prince of the Pufftop Kingdom, and the hero of The Legendary Starfy. Is he a star? A starfish? His commitment to helping you when summoned is obvious, even if his species isn't. He'll use a Star Spin attack, which isn't all that powerful. It's the thought that counts![8].

History

On December 25, 2013, it was first revealed that Starfy would appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U via a picture of the day on the official Smash Bros. website, showing Starfy, a yellow Luma and Pikachu. [9] The picture of the day was also posted on Miiverse with the text "Pic of the day. Yellow characters." (Japanese: きょうの一枚。 黄色いいきものたち。, Picture of the Day. Yellow Creatures).[10][11]

Starfy's status in the game remained unconfirmed for a while, as the picture of the day did not confirm he was an Assist Trophy, and there was no page for Starfy as a new character on the site.

Later, two screenshots of Starfy appeared on the Mario Galaxy and Town and City stages, apparently as part of a press package release. Screenshots from it were uploaded to Flickr by 'Endless' in the first quarter of 2014.[12]

Starfy was confirmed as an Assist Trophy appeared during E3 2014 demo footage on the 10th of June, including the Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament, where he appeared in matches.
