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

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

A year ago at E3, Ubisoft made a bold choice - just as Disney Infinity, Skylanders and every other toys-to-life game franchise was winding down, it announced a big, complex, comprehensive space adventure that relies on physical toys and collectables.

During the Ubisoft press conference today, a trailer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas was shown, which ended with Fox of Star Fox fame flying in as a guest character in the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The reveal came along with a new trailer for Starlink, which gave a glimpse at the kinds of planets, creatures, and experiences we can expect in the space-faring adventure. 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.

Here is the Starlink: Battle for Atlas Star Fox trailer. And that includes the Arwing, available only with Nintendo Switch. As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too.

It will launch on October 16, 2018.
