Game Profile

Lead the Star Fox Team to Victory!

In the distant Lylat star system, imagine yourself at the controls of a futuristic, heavily armed, space fighter - Arwing.

Lead the counter-attack on an invasion force of hundreds of alien tanks, fighter ships, laser gun emplacements and super battleships. Maneuver at warp speed through fog-enshrouded canyons, dense asteroid belts and waves of the enemy's best defense. You must use skill and cunning to bring the fight to the enemy's home planet Venom and smash the Core Brain for victory!

Pretty Foxy stuff...

In 1993 the Mega Drive / Genesis was selling well and 2D was the bread and butter of console gaming. "Emergency, emergency… emergency, emergency! Incoming fighters prepare for launch", hailed the 16-bit Nintendo counter attack. For Sega and...

Did You Know Gaming? Takes to the Skies With Star Fox

A nice warm-up for E3

There are some titles that we know - courtesy of release-windows, common sense or Nintendo confirmation - will be shown at E3; one of these is Star Fox for Wii U. Hopefully we'll learn of a release window, a final name and get a good look at what's come of Shigeru Miyamoto's desire to produce a cinematic, innovative GamePad...

Busts some old myths

Assuming that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata doesn't appear in this year's E3 Digital Event and ask us to "please understand", we should have a new Star Fox game for Wii U this year. We may know very little about it, but we won't deny that it's pretty near the top of our hype list for the upcoming LA event. There'll be plenty...

Here's a Team Fortress 2 Star Fox Deathmatch Mod

Yes, really

Team Fortress is a phenomenon, as the Valve-developed multiplayer FPS typifies the features that many PC gamers adore — basically, it can be modded and manipulated in a lot of ways. It's a major part of the game's appeal, though the default crazy cartoonish action has a legion of fans, with plenty still playing the ageing game to...

The North American SNES Almost Shipped With Super FX Built-In

Idea was scrapped to keep costs down, says Jez San

The polygon-pushing power of the Super FX chip might seem humble in modern terms, but back in the early '90s it was a seriously potent piece of kit and allowed the SNES to produce games like Star Fox, Stunt Race FX and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. The chip — which was conceived by British...

Great game and very cool polygon graphics for the time period. I remember how impressive the game was back when it was first released. We've come a long way since then. :)

Great game indeed. I saw this in the "Latest Screenshots" list and my heart lept, but then I realized I wasn't in the VC section of NintendoLife. Ah well.

Still the best.

I still think this game looks really cool even today. The colors are just done so well.

Doubtful, as the cart included a difficult-to-emulate graphics chip.

This isn't on the Wii shop channel and boy does it look impressive! I wouldn't expect such a powerful game on a SNES Cartridge ( I had never actually had a SNES, but what I do have is the knowledge that it used cartridges). I need to look into the Star Fox games.

The sad thing about this game the easiest path has the most best final stage. Also just to let you know; you could actually get to the easiest path through the hardest path and still have the best ending???? Isn't that funny. I forget if that is true. I mean the hardest path just insanely stupid; But worth the challenge.

The biggest thing about this game was all the weird bosses and the enemies. I mean this thing was great.
