  • Random Star Fox Dev Thinks Star Fox Adventures "Was Too British"

    "I think Star Fox is a very complex title"

    The Star Fox series has been a bit of a mixed bag, hasn't it? There have been huge genre shifts, recreations, and attempts to capture that same magic that the SNES original — and the N64 sequel — captured. Now, in an interview with VGC, Dylan Cuthbert, a programmer on the original Star Fox and Star Fox...

  • Poll What's The Best Star Fox Game?

    Okay, what's the SECOND best Star Fox game, then?

    You hear that? That is the sound of a 25-year-old 64-bit Arwing firing up its turbo boosters as Lylat Wars fast approaches its quarter-century. (Yes, Lylat Wars -- look it up, kids.) To say that the Star Fox franchise never got better than its first sequel isn't too controversial these days. The...

  • Weirdness 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 this...

  • News Make Miyamoto Smile: Show StarFox Love

    Feels Fox fallen, fears future frustration

    Some would argue - not necessarily us, but some - that StarFox is a franchise best left dead, having had its glory years nearly a decade ago and only reappearing in mediocre titles since Lylat Wars/StarFox 64 on N64. Shigeru Miyamoto wouldn't say that, though: he's a big fan and is upset the series has...

About The Game

Star Fox Assault sees a return to the intense and exciting space battles which made the series world famous.

Star Fox Assault takes place several years after the team successfully averted disaster on Dinosaur planet. Players can choose to compete in head to head combat or in single player mode. In single player mode, Fox McCloud with the help of his colleagues must investigate a new threat to the galaxy where a sinister plot begins to unravel...

Fans of the series will remember the original Star Fox on the Super NES when the first game was launched to huge acclaim back in March 1993. Starwing was one of the first games ever to use three-dimensional graphics for its action-packed gameplay. The series began by following the adventures of the Star Fox team, a group of hot-shot space mercenaries, dedicated to eradicating the universe of evil - for the right price of course! Under the direction of General Pepper, the team fought their way across the Lylat System against the evil forces of Emperor Andross, who had enslaved the galaxy. Gameplay consisted solely of air-based missions, with the player piloting the now legendary Arwing starship.

In addition, Star Fox Assault can also let you settle old grudges with your mates! Up to four players can battle it out in a selection of specially designed arenas. After choosing a vehicle of choice, gamers engage in heated battles against the clock. The player with the most 'kills' when the timer runs out is declared the winner.
