When Nintendo’s Star Fox crew shows up at the beginning of Ubisoft’s new toy-based space epic, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, they’re ready to see the adventure through to the very end. They’re a surprisingly big part of the Switch version of the game.
Star Fox was made by a bunch of teens, and Shigeru Miyamoto used to smoke cigarettes.
Fox McCloud will appear in Ubisoft’s toy-based space flight action-adventure game Starlink: Battle For Atlas, the company said today. Exclusively on the game’s Nintendo Switch version, of course.
A piping hot new E3 rumor suggests that Retro Studios, the Nintendo-owned developer behind the Metroid Prime trilogy, is making a Star Fox racing game. These rumors have been floating around gossipy Nintendo fan and writer circles for at least a few weeks now, but they’ve only gone public today, suggesting that…
One, sixty-four, zero, two. That’s the order of release for Nintendo’s Star Fox series, and it’s the order that I’ve now played them. Star Fox Adventures and Command turned up in the middle, if we’re also counting releases with subtitles instead of numbers.
Nintendo’s absurdly anticipated SNES Classic console launched today, but somebody’s already ripped Star Fox 2 to a handful of original SNES cartridges, listed them on places like eBay and Etsy, and sold them.
Last week, Nintendo quietly uploaded the digital manual for Star Fox 2, which will be included on this month’s SNES Classic hardware. But what’s really interesting is that said manual included a whole batch of concept art and game design documents for the canceled Super FX Chip shooter.
I tried out the SNES Classic, and found that Nintendo has made some small but meaningful improvements to it over the NES Classic. I have no idea why, since the thing would sell out in 30 seconds anyway even if it were covered in rusty needles. Instead, it has a few nice new features, including a pretty smart system to…
Nintendo announced that the SNES Classic will come with the previously-unreleased Star Fox 2. Were you surprised? Imagine how the game’s original programmer Dylan Cuthbert feels. He told Kotaku via email that he found out with everyone else when the news broke.
Not too realistic, because an overly realistic Star Fox cast would just be animals in flight jackets. But this is a good compromise.
Even if you can get used to the awkward controls, Star Fox Zero is merely mediocre. It’s as disappointing a major Nintendo console release as there’s been in some time.
It’s short, coming in at around 13 minutes, but remember: this is a team effort between Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell), WIT Studios (Attack on Titan) and Shigeru Miyamoto. And it’s pretty damn cool.
It’s barely related to the Star Fox series and has mostly been ignored in the year of hype leading to the release of its big brother Star Fox Zero, but the new oddball Star Fox Guard tower defense game from Nintendo and Platinum is well worth your attention.
Nintendo is streaming a Star Fox anime short on April 20. Titled Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins, it’s a collaboration between Production I.G of the Ghost in the Shell anime fame, WIT Studios of the Attack on Titan anime fame and Shigeru Miyamoto of Shigeru Miyamoto fame.
It’s never been strange for Nintendo to delay a game until they’re happy, but Star Fox 2 was a rare moment it canceled a game that was almost done.
Star Fox Zero, which was supposed to be released this year, is now coming on April 22 for Wii U.
Remember Menchi, the cute little Chiba Inu we featured last Halloween? Menchi is back, and this year he’s kicking ass as Fox McCloud.
