Is Starfy Nintendo’s next star? Nintendo is promoting the smiling starfish that way.
Nintendo held a Legendary Starfy event at their flagship New York store where fans could hug (an inflatable?) Starfy. Yeah, The Legendary Starfy came out about a month ago here and a year ago in Japan, but at least Nintendo is pushing the game. Chibi-Robo and Fire Emblem didn’t get this kind of treatment.
Perhaps, Nintendo of America realized they have another family friendly franchise in their pocket. The funny thing is The Legendary Starfy aka The Legendary Starfy Showdown! Dire Pirate Squad in Japan sold poorly in comparison with the rest of the Starfy games.
