Star Fox is back in 'Starlink: Battle for Atlas'

12 June 2018

Starlink: Battle for Atlas was revealed at E3 2017, promising toys to life with a twist.

Turns out the answer was easy.

Star Fox will be a playable character in the game Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch along with his trusty Arwing space ship, Ubisoft announced during its E3 conference Monday. Complete with their own toys. Last year, Ubisoft forged a strong relationship with Nintendo when it released Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. But Switch users will have a huge helping hand in the form of Nintendo's intergalactic hero, Fox McCloud and the Star Fox team, coming exclusively to the Switch edition. It uses a completely modular spaceship toy that attaches to your gamepad. And that includes the Arwing, available only with Nintendo Switch. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas launches for all consoles on October 16th, 2018.
