You all now have one major question in your heads: who?! Mike Jones starred in an action-adventure game for the NES called StarTropics (it’s alright if you haven’t played it, not many have). Mike found himself on an island where he uncovered a dangerous mystery using a myriad of weaponry as defense. That arsenal, believe it or not, would actually translate well to the world of Smash, so why not make him as Assist Trophy and give him a new spotlight to shine in?
In StarTropics, Mike used weapons like a yo-yo, a baseball bat, bolas, laser rifles, and many other items and power-ups to defeat invading aliens, and he could wield any number of them when he came out to assist. He also liked to stick bananas in his ears, though we don't know how that will help. Above all else, we don’t want to have to use an actual physical piece of paper like we did in order to advance in StarTropics. If that happens, we’re out.
