The Legendary Starfy DS

#1 Edited by Linkyshinks (9881 posts) -



Nintendo of America has released some new screens of the English version of "Dire Pirate Squad", known outside Japan as The Legendary Starfy. TOSE's 2D platformer features two player co-op during boss battles, and specific areas, as well as mini-games. 

American DS owners can expect the game on the 8th of June, with a European release yet to be confirmed.


I have played a little via a friends import copy and I came away mighty impressed. I'm really happy this game is finally getting a western release, it's classic 2D platforming fare, which the DS needs more of.

Dude, it's an awesome little game. I felt like stealing my friends copy for a couple days.  I hope we in Europe don't have to wait to long, if we do, screw waiting, I can get an import copy from the US.

Charming stuff.

There has been a lot of debate on the translation of the name.  As this is the first western translation, I suppose this has to be the correct name.


I love the cuteness factor.  Certainly worth checking out.

I actually misread it as Starfry.

Starfry sounds good dright now.

I think Starfi wouldn't have worked in the U.S, I think that's what they were going to initially call it, they obviously backed out though. It's better this way.
