Mike Jones is an ordinary kid on an extraordinary adventure. When his archaeologist uncle goes missing on a tropical island, Mike sets off to uncover the dark secrets lurking in paradise.

StarTropics boasts two styles of gameplay: explore the island on foot or in your uncle’s submarine, and battle monsters using a variety of weapons and items.

The original Nintendo Entertainment System release included a letter in the game box, with a hidden message. For the Virtual Console version, this has been reproduced in the electronic manual.
