Nintendo recently released an animated Star Fox short called The Battle Begins, but it’s not the only Star Fox cartoon in the works. A dedicated fan named Matthew Gafford has been working on his Star Fox fan animation project for several years now, and the project pushed ahead even after Nintendo attempted to shut it down.
Gafford had previously announced that he would rename the characters in his series,
A Fox in Space, in order to continue development without interference from Nintendo. However, he has now released the first episode (noting it as a non-profit parody) with the original names in tact. In the first episode, “Don’t Call Me Star Fox,” Fox McCloud has been captured by a group of Venomian soldiers led by Wolf O’Donnell, and is taken to the neutral Sargasso Space Station as per orders from Andross.
