On June 8th, the fifth Stafy game (DS) will be coming to the U.S. under the title "The Legendary Starfy". I'm pretty much the only excited one, but eh.

Also, Punch Out!! on the Wii comes out on May 18th.

Yeah, I was wondering when somebody was going to bring this up. It definitely came out of nowhere, but it's great to finally see NoA acknowledge the existence of a four games+ series replete with Nintendo cameos and doubly referenced in SSBB. So will I get it? We'll see (if they released the last four as a compilation game alongside this one, I'd be sold).

Also, I guess the correct translation is Starfy (makes more sense, anyway), but I've seen it translated as Stafy.

As for Punch-Out, despite his insanity, I think I'm with "Bob" on this one.

It appears in Brawl as "Stafy", which baffles the hell outta me.

That said, it kinda sucks that there's four games worth of story and material that are just gonna end up disregarded in this game's localization, but eh...

スタフィ is easy to transliterate as Stafy, because the R is only implied in pronunciation. The "ahh" sound in "Stahhfy" assumes an R.
That was a joke.

Mmm. I kind of prefer Starfy. It makes more sense, it's a cuter name, and it doesn't make me think the character is going to be some sort of stick.

Well, they gave all these weird, unlocalized names to the Animal Crossing trophies in Melee, so it's not that big of a deal.

I've seen magazines and guidebooks that list those Trophies with their US names, but since K.K.'s name wasn't finalized, they labeled him as "Arlo". 0_o

Hmmm. So, you're tellling me that Totekeke isn't his Japanese name?

It is. I mean that their US names weren't finalized.

I'd be curious how "Arlo" sounds like anything remotely referring to a dog or guitar in any language.

Also, I always got a kick out of those Pokemon guides that came out before GS that had the Japanese names for all of them (actually, it really irritated me for some reason).

It refers to Arlo Guthrie. He plays guitar.
That was a joke.
