Remember what a delightful surprise Star Fox 64 was when it first showed up in '97, bundled in its enticing oversize box with the Rumble Pak? I do. So it was like saying "hello" to an old friend today when I saw it at Nintendo's E3 complex; an old friend tripped out with some motion controls and minor cosmetic enhancements, but that same old friend nevertheless.

Most importantly, Star Fox 64 on the 3DS has retained all of its original voice-acting and facial portraits—you and I both know it wouldn't be the same game otherwise.
