It’s been two years since the last Legend of Stafy game and Tose is making some changes with Densetsu no Stafi: Taiketsu Daiiru Kaizokudan (Legend of Stafy: Confrontation! Daiiru (?) Pirate Brigade). The starfish character has a new ability that lets him transform into creatures like a dragon. While in the Dranpa suit Stafy can breathe fire that burns rubble. There are four tabs on the official site, which logically translate to four transformations. DS Fanboy mentions a Famitsu article showing one of the other changing options turns Stafy into a seal.
The other technical change let’s Stafy’s sister, Stapy, join up through wireless play. However, you don’t need a copy of Densetsu no Stafi: Taiketsu Daiiru Kaizokudan to help a friend out. A second player can join in via DS downloadable play during boss battles and select areas. Stapy has her own skills like wall jumping and a block breaking crouching spin attack. If you want to collect everything in the game it looks like you’re going to need Stapy’s help.
Nintendo will release Densetsu no Stafi: Taiketsu Daiiru Kaizokudan on July 10 and at this time no North American release date has been announced. However, thanks to Super Smash Brothers Brawl the character is now internationally known. Perhaps that’s enough leverage for Nintendo of America or Nintendo of Europe to localize the title in the future.
