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 in Europe) blasted onto the scene - just over 26 years ago.

As well as spawning plenty more games in the franchise, such as Star Fox 64, the game's success has seen it appear on the relatively recent SNES Mini console which also included Star Fox 2 - an unreleased project which was cancelled back in 1995. If this rerelease was your first taste of the original Star Fox, or if you just want to bask in the nostalgic glow of the '90s, the video above is probably for you.

Shared on YouTube by user strafefox, the video delves into the making of the original game, covering the personnel involved and the technical side of development. It explores the roles of key figures such as Jez San and Dylan Cuthbert - as well as their relationship with a certain Mr. Miyamoto - and also explains how the all-important Super FX chip was made. It's a pretty fascinating watch if you're not clued up on the story.

Make sure to give it a good watch and let us know what you think in the comments below. Do you have any memories of Star Fox just itching to be shared?
