In the Trivia section it says this: "Red makes a reference to StarTropics during one scene with IF when she mentions how a kid used a yo-yo & Chinese sword to defeat demon taoist & defeat Rei Jenrong to save master Naguri Tensai."
Didn't expect a Neptunia game of all things to reference ST...

Let me mark the 10,000 day by commenting how awesomely weird it would be if, in an upcoming Direct, Mike was revealed as CP11. I keep getting the vibes that CP11 is going to be first party. Imagine if it turned out to be Mike and it's combined with an announcement that ST1 and 2 will be released in regions that don't have them and we'll also get a new game?

BTW, the only other series that I know if that has received no notice in Ultimate is Eggerland/Adventures of Lolo.

What if StarTropics had a crossover with Advance Wars?

An official Japanese localization of the first game would be more than enough to renew my faith in Nintendo. Even a mediocre PNG (Spirit) in Smash would also suffice!

Imagine if, during the last Smash presentation, they reveal a Mii costume with a song! They could even give the Mii costume a splash screen as they did with Geno just to emphasize how big of a deal it is!

MIKE JONES TESTS HIS ISLAND COURAGE!

sadly and as expected, no startropics news.
Nintendo announced that Nintendo 64 games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online, snd StarTropics 2 is STILL not getting rereleased.

BUT. Since N64 games are being rereleased now...
We can only hope Pilotwings 64, the last Nintendo game that made a direct reference to StarTropics (before Animal Crossing New Horizons) can finally get a rerelease after 25 years. It's time to spread the word for PW64 and ST2 to get the respect they deserve, it's WAAAY long overdue for both of these games.

If I had a dollar for every time a palm tree has fooled me, I would have 5 dollars by now.

Seeing that city in ruins really made me think of the planet Argonia! Also, it's quite interesting how this city happens to have a building RESEMBLING the Space Needle that also happens to be in Seattle, WA!

Imagine if this Kirby game ends up having a StarTropics (ST) reference of some kind!

On a different note, it seems like Nintendo doesn't have plans to release the Advance Wars (AW) remakes in Japan. This got me thinking if Nintendo is willing to remake the first 2 AW games for its western audience, could they also be willing to remake the first ST game?

Here's a chart I made for the ST timeline:

Just imagine all the possible lore we could have gotten if Nintendo hadn't abandoned the series!

I wanted to do a recap of some of the speculation that has taken place here, but I keep getting an error message whenever I try to insert images. . . (maybe it's because there are way too many people using this site at the time)


Anyways, here's an interesting thing I came across on Twitter:

I just replied to Nintendo's tweet about the Mii costumes with this, and I already started getting angry DMs alongside other nonsense.
Smash fans never change.

It was nice interacting with you guys, even if we all knew deep down that Smash would end without any StarTropics content. At least we were able to dream for a moment and believe in the Southern Cross.

I won't be active anymore on this site, but I'll continue to advocate for a revival of the series. Who knows, maybe, just maybe, one day the higher-ups at Nintendo will remember the series' existence.

Even if nothing ever happens, at least we'll rest assured knowing that we did everything we could've possibly have done to support the series.

Take care, everyone.

Sincerely,
Dr. Richie

It was nice knowing ya', pal. Hopefully we'll see you again some time.

And hey, maybe we'll get lucky next Smash game.

Mike feels more like he should be base roster than DLC anyway.

I made a Mike Jones skin for Lucas in Smash Bros. Crusade:

I also updated the StarTropics stage I made a while back:

I wonder how many spirit events the game has left. I know Startropics is an extremely minor series, but you would think it would get at least one spirit. Same with Lolo from the Eggerland series.
