Because who doesn't love the swimming levels in platformers?  Lets just make a whole game like that.

The music makes me want to kill something

The saccharine sweetness in this game makes Kirby look like a sourpuss.

@PlatypusPlatoon: It does remind me a lot of Kirby, especially with the transforming and all.  I think I'd be able to stomach the hyper cuteness if it's actually a good game.

Oh nos! It looks to Japanese for me! (Sarcasm)

Cuteness overload. I want this game. Not because it's so cute, but...because...um...

I like sidescrollers especially with their own original gimmicks. Starfy's cuteness doesn't hurt. I hope the minigames aren't dull over time like Wario: Master of Disguise's was.

So the star from Super Mario got his own game, huh.

This reminds me of those Crayon Kirby games for SNES, it had similar thing where I fused with a partner and could do different things. Wonder if the team behind both the games is same..

Anyways. "What will you and I do?" ?!?!?!? When did they start doing that thing... man thats one really silly choice for a tagline.. I guess they hired someone from the Highly succesful Sony Marketing team :/

Finally. People are calling it "Starfy" instead of "Stafy". "Stafy" makes it look like an adjective for a nasty infection on top of it being wrong...

Didn't this game come out in like 2006 in Japan? It feels so old.

I laughed at the "What will you and do?"

haha, I played the originals they were pretty fun, a lot like kirby. The advantage of living in Japan although there are some disadvantages such as Japanese games and lack of 360 games so on.

ok

The first game came out in the early 2000s.  I heard they were pretty popular in Japan.  I don't know why it took Nintendo so long to bring the franchise to the West.  Maybe they thought it was too similar to Kirby and might cause confusion, or maybe now (with success) they are feeling ballsy enough to ship whatever they please.

I'm not sure what I've just seen but I know I can't unsee it.
