Star Fox 2 is coming out later this month, thanks to the release of the Mini SNES. And ahead of that, Nintendo has published the manual for Star Fox 2 online.
Available through the Nintendo Japan website, the manual is annotated for websites and has lots of neat art and animations to go with it.
The controls are fairly standard - if you remember your Star Fox brake from your boost, anyway - and the manual notes that you can unlock Expert mode after defeating the Hard mode "under certain conditions".
Three Arwings are available: the Amoured Arwing, with Slippy and Peppy as pilots; the prototype ship, a balanced model helmed by Falco and Fox; and a lighter craft that's nippier but faster, piloted by Fay and Miyu.
There's a small segment of the all-range mode, which lets you move freely in all directions:
You can skim through the whole manual over on Nintendo's website. The Mini SNES is due to arrive on September 30 (rather than launch, given how quickly pre-orders sold out).
