Starfy is one of the more obscure first-party characters from Nintendo. The yellow-colored star is the mascot of five handled platform games. However, the first four titles were not released outside of Japan. It wasn’t until the release of “The Legendary Starfy” for the Nintendo DS in 2009 did western gamers got to see the character in action.

Starfy previously appear as an assist trophy in “Super Smash Bros. Brawl” on the Nintendo Wii. When summoned, he does a low-damage spin attack that temporary locks an opponent into one position. However, he can also explode when attacked, causing big harm to anyone close by.

The mascot will most likely return to the same role in “Super Smash Bros. 4.” You can check out the first screen of Starfy, as well as Pikachu and Luma, in the slideshow to the left of this article. Several other shots from the video game are also featured in the gallery.

The Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of “Super Smash Bros. 4,” which are due to launch sometime in 2014, should both feature Starfy.
