Since I live in the UK, the game Star Fox 64 is called 'Lylat Wars'. This, as some of you may know, is because of a (pretty bad) Atari game also called Star Fox which was only released in Europe. To avoid a potential lawsuit, NOE called Star Fox on the SNES 'Star Wing', and Star Fox 64 'Lylat Wars'.

I personally still call these games by their American names because:
1. They are the intended names for these games so I feel I am calling them by the right names
2. I think Star Wing and Lyalt Wars sound a bit naff
3. The remake for Star Fox 64 on the 3DS is called 'Star Fox 64 3D' in Europe, NOT 'Lylat Wars 3D'
4. NOE named all other Star Fox games after these ones with 'Star Fox _______', meaning that they do not care about the copyright problems anymore.
5. It really annoys my friend when I call them that when he's around :p

So I was just wondering what everyone else, especially those who live in Europe like me, call these great games.

Rubbish.

Actually, I call it Star Fox 64, probably 'cos of the 3DS remake.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Actually, the patent of the original name of atari expired not too long after the realease of lylat wars in Europe

On a side note: I still consider the original star fox for the SNES the best, DAT music, that gibberish talking, the awesome boss design, even the choppy framerate, graphics and static aiming, I've grown to like more and more as the years pass by.

I still play it from time to time, completing all 3 paths :)

I'd probably do the same if it had a different name than originally intended here in America.
