During this year’s E3 we were all caught off guard by the surprise announcement that Fox McCloud of Star Fox fame is coming to Starlink: Battle for Atlas. It seems Nintendo has warmed up to Ubisoft thanks to the success of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Nintendo’s favorite pilot was a perfect fit for their upcoming space adventure.
So how does Fox fare in a non-Nintendo world? GameSpot and GameXplain both got a chance to check the game out recently, and they’ve uploaded the opening cutscene (featuring Fox, Peppy, Falco, and Slippy) as well as 14 minutes of Fox McCloud gameplay. There’s a battle in outer space as well as a planet-based mission in a desert area. The gameplay looks like it shouldn’t be too tough of a transition for
Star Fox fans. You can judge for yourself by clicking below!
