One of the few surprises at E3 this year was the announcement of Star Fox DS. Nintendo only provided us with a snippet of information about the game and no official title.

It seems now that Nintendo's official .com website has been updated with the title Star Fox Command and a estimated release date of August 28th 2006.

Star Fox Command puts players through a branching set of missions in the familiar Arwing fighter. There's also multiplayer co-op and competitive game modes for up to four players on the Wi-Fi Connection, or eight players locally. Co-op mode will also allow a player designated as team leader to plot out a course through the level using the system's touch screen.

We're really looking forward to some good ol' fashioned Arwing action on the DS -- and don't forget those strong rumours of a Wii Star Fox in the works.
