Densetsu no Stafy 2 is a platform game developed by TOSE and pubished by Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance platform. Like Densetsu no Stafy, it is a Japanese exclusive. It is the second installment in The Legendary Starfy series.
Stafy, known as Starfy in Western regions, is now back at Pufftop Palace, playing with his friend Moe. The series' main antagonist, Ogura, imprisoned inside the Magic Jar, unleashes his children into the sky. Ogura's children cause a series of thunderstorms and earthquakes that shake Pufftop Palace, causing the Magic Jar to shatter and release Ogura. Ogura captures Starfy's mother and flies away with Starfy in hot pursuit. Both he and Moe fall from Pufftop Palace to the ocean below. The duo mount an attack against Ogura and his children during the journey back to Pufftop Palace. As in the previous game, Densetsu no Stafy, Starfy helps various people with all sorts of different troubles during the course of several levels, such as finding their missing items, defeating bothersome enemies, and so on. Starfy and company fight against Ogura and his 10 children to reseal Ogura in the Magic Jar.
Ogura's children have two daughters and 8 sons, but their names are all numbered and they're the ones who stole Starfy's treasures.
Starfy himself can run, jump, and attack via spinning; he also gains access to various transportation objects and animal familiars from the previous game in the series as the games progress. Unlike its predecessor, Densetsu no Stafy 2 usually has a certain number of stages per area, with each stage split up into four sub-stages. Ogura's children as boss characters hide at the end of each world's final stage. Most of the other stages' goals are centered around retrieving a lost or stolen item for another character. There are many items to collect and many enemies to defeat. Players can move Starfy on land by running and jumping, but when Starfy is in watery areas, Stafty can move more freely, push obstacles, and so on. Like its prequel, this game also includes minigames.
After the release of the first game, Nintendo and TOSE both immediately started development on the sequel. It took them no longer than a year to develop, market, and release the game.
