Star Fox 2 News
For SNES games and much more
Following on from those "massive" Nintendo leaks earlier this year, it has now reportedly happened again. Alleged prototype versions of classic Super Nintendo titles such as Yoshi's Island, Super Mario Kart, and
Fox McCloud is first up
Since the beginning of last year, the God of War art director, Raf Grassetti, has been drawing incredibly realistic drawings of iconic video game characters. He started out with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters and eventually moved onto Battletoads and Cuphead character designs. To celebrate the new year, he's now...
Star Fox, Kirby and more!
Just in case it had slipped your mind over the last week or so, we thought it best to remind you that you can now get stuck into six new (well, old but new) games on your Nintendo Switch. Today sees the release of Star Fox 2, Super Punch-Out!!, Kirby Super Star, Breath of Fire II, Journey To Silius, and
Arriving next week
Well, what a surprise. The day after Nintendo told us to try out F-Zero and other classic SNES games, it has now announced it will be adding six – yes, six – games to the Switch Online service on 12th December. Four are for the SNES app and the other two are for the NES app. Arguably the most exciting of the lot is Star Fox 2
Here are our picks, but what are yours?
Well, with one thing and another it's been a busy ol' week. We had some Pokémon announcements early on followed by some hands-on time with the upcoming Super Mario Maker 2 (plus some disappointing details, too), and not to forget the
"I used to love McVitie's chocolate biscuits during those all nighters”
Dylan Cuthbert, founder of Q-Games and best-known as lead programmer on the original Star Fox, has recently been on Twitter sharing some personal Nintendo stories from back in the day. His most recent account details a particular cold December night when he stayed late working...
27 years after the console launched
Star Fox 2 may be arriving decades after the glory days of the SNES, but (depending on your perspective) it's on course to become the console's 19th million-selling game. Sure, it's not a "proper" release as it comes pre-loaded on the SNES Classic Mini alongside 20 other titles (some of which, it should be noted,...
Going back to the beginning
Late last week I remembered that the SNES Mini was right around the corner, after it had somewhat drifted out of my mind. The past month has been somewhat busy and chaotic on both a personal and professional level, with Nintendo having the audacity to release a system that's selling rather well. With the silly season of...
"All the Star Fox 2 team would be playing it"
The SNES Classic Mini arrives later this month and brings with Star Fox 2, a game which was supposed to come out in the mid-'90s but was canned at the very last minute. There are countless theories as to why Nintendo decided to pull the plug on what was essentially a finished game, but the general...
Includes orginal design documents
It's been one surprise after another with Star Fox series. Who would have thought that 22 years after the game's cancellation the sequel would be bundled in with the SNES Classic Mini? Continuing this trend, Nintendo has uploaded the digital manual for Star Fox 2 detailing the story, characters and most...
Barrel rolls and everything
The SNES Classic Edition comes out next month, but we've been lucky enough to get our hands on the system early, and as you might imagine we've been tirelessly putting it through its paces to see what all the fuss is about. Perhaps the biggest selling point of the system is that it includes Star Fox 2, which is being...
It's not the final ROM, but it's close
Star Fox 2 is a bit of an oddball for Nintendo; a fully completed sequel to an already successful and highly impressive title that was shelved to make way for the new, shiny N64 with go-faster stripes. Thankfully it's on its way to the public's deserving hands with the release of the Super NES Classic Edition,...
"Nintendo owns that patent anyway"
The news that Star Fox 2 is finally getting an official release on the Super NES Classic Edition sent shockwaves through the gaming world, and even caught programmer Dylan Cuthbert by surprise. The game -
"I presume it will be that mastered version?"
The internet is still in shock somewhat from Nintendo's decision to include the previously unreleased Star Fox 2 on the Super NES Classic Edition. While questions remain about exactly which version of this unreleased game will be on the hardware, we do know Nintendo has commissioned new artwork and a...
Stranger than fiction
Nintendo dropped a double-whammy yesterday, announcing the Super NES Classic and confirming that one of the included games is Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to the best-selling original. As you'll know if you've consulted our definitive feature on the topic, Star Fox 2 was supposed to b
"The series was never intended to be limited to linear 3D scrolling stages"
To celebrate the announcement of the SNES Classic Mini, we're republishing the full story behind the cancellation of Star Fox 2, which first appeared on the site back in May 2015. This year will see the launch of another entry in Nintendo's long-running space battle...
It only took 22 years...
Nintendo has just casually announced the Super NES Classic Edition which had long been rumoured ever since the initial NES Classic Edition last year. One thing that no-one saw coming was that Nintendo is including a (we're assuming) finished version of Star Fox 2, a cancelled Super Nintendo game that has widely been...
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...
And we're not talking about fan-made patched prototype ROMs, either
Later today, we'll be running an exclusive interview with Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert, a key figure in the history of the Star Fox series - he worked on the SNES original, its cancelled sequel, Star Fox Command and the 3DS port of Star Fox 64. In our interview, Cuthbert reveals...
