Ubisoft has announced that Starlink: Battle for Atlas - the intriguing space dogfighter announced at E3 many moons ago - is headed to Nintendo Switch on 16th October. Oh, and the Nintendo Switch version will include none other than Fox McCloud and his trusty Arwing. Somebody hold us.

Developed by Ubisoft Toronto, you'll explore new words in the Atlas system, head into intense dogfights and do it all in a starship you can customise with the game's real-life toys. Personalising your toy will see the same additions appear on-screen. And that includes the Arwing, available only with Nintendo Switch. Here's the official blurb on Fox's arrival:

"Ace pilot and leader of the Star Fox Team, Fox McCloud is the legendary defender of the Lylat star system. Fox came to Atlas in pursuit of Wolf O'Donnell and his crew, and he has teamed up with the Starlink initiative in their fight against Grax and the Forgotten Legion. Exclusively on Nintendo Switch."

So what do you make of Starlink: Battle for Atlas? Will the addition of Arwings be enough to sell you on its toys-to-life premise? Share your thoughts below...
