  • Poll Box Art Brawl #7 - Star Fox

    Barrel roll with the punches

    Oh, hello there! We were so involved with the freshly released Super NES games on Switch we almost forgot about the big bout. Of course it's time for Box Art Brawl, the weekly showdown where three regional retro boxes battle to find out which was the fairest of them all. Last week Mega Man 3 gave itself a sound...

  • Video The Making Of SNES Classic Star Fox And The Super FX Chip

    And so, the Lylat System was born

    Whether you're a diehard fan of the series, or even just familiar with the team thanks to the Super Smash Bros. games, Fox, Falco, Slippy, and Peppy hold a special place in the hearts of many Nintendo fans (yes, we're including Slippy here). The series' Lylat System was born in 1993, when Star Fox (known as Starwing...

  • Video Nintendo Unleashes a Snazzy History of Star Fox Showcase

    With some awesome Star Fox Zero footage included

    Star Fox Zero isn't far away, and as the name suggests it will serve in part as a greatest hits showcase for the modern generation. From stages and plotlines inspired by Star Fox 64 through to the fact you can unlock a retro-styled 16-bit Arwing with a scan of the Fox amiibo, it's full of nods to the...

  • Video 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...

  • 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 Fan Video Gives a Tease of Star Fox HD

    A bit better than Mode 7

    The Star Fox franchise hasn't had a great deal of love recently, the only recent glimmer of hope being Star Fox 64 3D, a remake of the highly regarded Nintendo 64 title. Will Wii U revive the franchise, or was the N64 remake a warmup for a new title on 3DS? Who knows, but we'll always have the power of nostalgia. YouTube...

  • News Fox McCloud Returns As Star Fox 64 3D Launches Worldwide

    The whole crew's here

    After a lengthy absence — his last starring role was back in 2006 — Fox McCloud is back, as Star Fox 64 3D takes off across North America and Europe today. The updated version of Star Fox 64 (known as Lylat Wars in Europe) is one of the better games we've seen released for 3DS so far, as our Star Fox 64 3D review explains:...

  • Feature Star Fox - Pioneering 3D Shoot-em-ups Since 1993

    Shoot everything in sight

    This week sees the release of Star Fox 64 3D. As you're no doubt aware, it's a remastering in the same vein as Ocarina of Time 3D, so updated visuals are naturally present. Given the updated hardware, Fox McCloud and the team will be appearing in true 3D for the first time. On the 3DS, a true sensation of depth should...

  • Round Table Looking Back at the Star Fox Series

    Back in the Arwing

    Fox McCloud is about to make a welcome return to the gaming scene, with the upcoming Star Fox 64 3D ready to blast onto 3DS screens. As a franchise, Star Fox has shown plenty of diversity, so we decided it was time to reflect on the adventures of good old Fox and the gang. Features editor Thomas Whitehead is joined by community...

  • News Miyamoto Hints At Wii 2, Wii HD

    Gaming god also suggests that Star Fox may be blasting his way onto Wii

    See that smoke on the horizon, son? That's the rumour mill starting. The gaming public notoriously gets its hopes up when Miyamoto opens his mouth: it gives us permission to dream once more, like kids on Christmas Eve. Only a fool would think that Nintendo isn't working on their...

  • Feature The Making of Star Fox

    We go behind the scenes to discover how a small UK code-house helped Nintendo enter the realm of 3D – and make millions in the process

    In these days of ultra-realistic graphical plenty it’s all too easy to forget that for console gamers, 3D visuals didn’t really become par for the course until the advent of the 32-bit technology in the...

  • 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...
