Whether this is old news or not I'm not totally sure but I wasn't even aware of a Starfox 2. I'm sure the geeks will be flying over here to set me straight on the record but I'll just be on Youtube drooling over the footage I have never seen before. Care to join me?
Update by Anthony Dickens - Yeah, there was a sequel in development from Nintendo, its quite famously never been release although there were demos hanging around in the 90s, its quite famous in the emulation world ever since a handful of beta builds were leaked. You can read a load more about the game over at SNES Central. Now we're not ones to condone emulators, but wouldn't it be cool if Nintendo actually finished off Star Fox 2 and released it on the Virutal Console?
This is old news I'm afraid. If you know the right place to look you can even download the beta ROM - it runs pretty well in most SNES emulators actually. Amazingly someone has actually got this working on a SNES console (using the kind of carts they usually release pirate games on). There was a massive feature on this in a previous issue of Retro Gamer, and I mentioned the game in my own 'Making of Starfox' piece in the same magazine. If you head over to www.meanmachinesmag.co.uk, click on the media section and go to 'Damien's Writing' there's a PDF scan of the feature.
Yeah, so I'm told.
I was totally unaware of the Starfox 2 game, let alone any movies of it or even a BETA version.
Phat_Ant sent me the BETA version over MSN yesterday and I've been enjoying it.
Sorry about the old news - but hey - if I didn't know about the game I'm sure there are plenty of others that didn't either huh?
I'm gonna go check out your link now
Cool, let me know what you think
