In yesterday's Nintendo Direct, we got our first glimpse at one of the characters set to make an appearance in Starlink: Battle for Atlas, and Star Fox fans around the world were no doubt shaking with Direct-hype excitement. Yes, we finally got to see Fox's rival, Wolf O'Donnell.

Nintendo didn't share too many details about Wolf's inclusion in Ubisoft's upcoming space adventure, but we do know that players will have to defeat his team in special 'Star Fox missions', exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game. You can see the character's full reveal in the video below (from the 27:31 mark).

Wolf has made several appearances throughout the history of Star Fox titles, debuting in Star Fox 64 as Fox's long-time rival, and going on to appear in games like Assault, Command, and Zero. Nintendo fans who haven't played these games will also likely recognise him from the Super Smash Bros. series - he was a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (and will be returning in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) and has also appeared as a collectable trophy.
