The Legendary Starfy, known as in Japan, is a video game series developed by TOSE (who also developed the Game & Watch Gallery series) and published by Nintendo. The series is the only franchise that TOSE owns the copyright for, although Nintendo owns the copyright as well. The series began in 2002 with Densetsu no Stafy for the Game Boy Advance, and four sequels were released. For its first seven years, Densetsu no Starfy games were not officially released outside of Japan. The fifth game in the series was released as The Legendary Starfy in North America on June 8, 2009.
The following is a list of games released in the series.
:Games predating Taiketsu! Daīru Kaizokudan were released exclusively in Japan. As a result, there are no official English language titles for these games. An official English language title may be given if any Nintendo division outside of Japan elects to localize any of these games or feature any of them in a game from another series.
The genre of the series is a special kind of platform game called "marine platform", due to the game being more about swimming than running and jumping around. Players control the protagonist of the series, Starfy, throughout each game; from the third title onward, Starfy's sister Starly is also playable occasionally. When on land, the controls are equal to the controls of most other platform games. When in the water, players can only move Starfy around using the control pad alone; however, if players want to make Starfy swim faster, they hold the A button down while moving him around. The games are usually composed of multiple stages or worlds, with each stage split up into four sub-stages. Boss characters hide at the end of each world's final sub-stage. Most of the other sub-stages' goals are centered around retrieving a lost or stolen item for another character. Most power-ups are vehicles and costumes. Some are new moves, and some are upgrades for moves and other power-ups.
