Star Fox For Nintendo 3DS 'Ups The Star Fox Mania'

There's a new old Star Fox coming to the Nintendo 3DS, a remake of the Nintendo 64 classic that, according to Nintendo, "ups the Star Fox mania" with a pair of new features, seemingly designed for Star Fox maniacs.

It's not the improved take on Star Fox 64's multiplayer mode, though that's in the 3DS update and playable over a local wi-fi connection. There are new multiplayer modes and weapons in Star Fox 64 3D. It's also not the graphical overhaul of the Nintendo 64 original.

It's these additions:

  • "The new Score Attack Mode allows the player to revisit any planet and play for a high score on that level."
  • "New features also allow first-time players to enjoy the excitement of Star Fox."

Crazy. Just crazy. Star Fox 64 3D doesn't have a firm release date yet; Nintendo says 2011. The Nintendo 3DS game wasn't playable during this week's event in New York City - even though it was playable at E3 2010 - so we don't expect it to be among those launch window games due by June.

    Visiting any planet is smart. I remember having to redo a whole game making sure I took the correct path just so I could try and get a medal on a certain level.
    And then accidently enter a warp and end up in the wrong path.

      That was part of the fun, though!

        In the begining? Ye. After a while Corneria just got old.

        Corneria... And Sector Z... Goddamn.

        Thankfully the game was something like half an hour long.

        They should have inserted this "choose mission" feature in the beginning. Hell, Rogue Squadron did it back in the day.

    Will be getting this for sure. The n64 original is one of my fav games from back in the day

    DO A BARREL ROLL!

    Now that was a fine game. How come they don't make them like this anymore?

    The worst part about SF3DS is that they'll no doubt replace the voice actors and redo the classic lines from SF64 that we loved and quoted so dearly.

    GET IM OFF ME, FOX!

    I can't let you do that star fox.

    Incoming message from Rob64!

    Only I have the brains to rule Lylat!

    Pretty smooth flying Fox

    IF I'M GOING DOWN, I'M TAKING YOU WITH ME!!!

    CAN'T LET YOU DO THAT, STAR FOX

    I'd complain about not getting a new game, but every game they've made in the series since 64 has been a disappointment.

      I enjoyed adventures, wasn't perfect but was fun. Made me laugh too!
