E3: Star Fox 64 3D – New Details, Screens, and Trailer

Fans have been wishing for another Star Fox game for a while now, and after years of waiting, Star Fox 64 3D is on the horizon.  Similar to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, this game is a remake of the Nintendo 64 classic, with updated graphics, controls, and a few new added features.

Some of these features include:

• A complete graphical update that makes effective use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s dual screens: The top screen features 3D aerial combat, while the bottom screen displays characters and dialogue.

•Two control methods: N64 Mode offers original controls, while the new N3DS Mode uses the motion controls of the built-in Gyro Sensor.

• Trusted wingmen Peppy, Slippy and Falco are along for the ride – if one of them is chased or captured by an enemy, players must act to protect them in order to keep their team strong.

• Each mission takes players through a different planet of the Lylat system as they blast enemies, collect power-ups and fight powerful bosses on their way to the final battle.

• A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce aerial combat via a local wireless connection (using four systems and one game card via DS Download Play).

• The multiplayer mode also includes new power-ups and special weapons.

• Players can use the Nintendo 3DS system’s inner camera to display a live video feed of their faces as they battle, bringing a new level of fun and personalization to the multiplayer experience.

The best news of all is Star Fox 64 3D arrives in stores in only a few months: expect it to arrive in the US in September of this year.
