‘Star Fox’ Announced for Inclusion in Ubisoft’s ‘Starlink’

Star Fox” is coming to Ubisoft’s “Starlink,” Ubisoft Toronto’s Laurent Malville announced Monday as Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto joined him on stage. “Star Fox” content will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.

“We are excited to give players a deeper look at ‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas,’ the first all-new property from Ubisoft Toronto,” Malville said. “‘Starlink’ is a project born from the passion of our collective team, and the opportunity to work directly with Nintendo to bring ‘Star Fox’ to our universe is a dream come true. We believe the Atlas open star system is a perfect playground for Fox to explore, and hope players will too.”

The game launches on Oct. 16.

“Starlink” is Ubisoft’s foray into the “toys-to-life” market, and will involve players building and customizing toy starships that mount directly to standard gamepads for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. The game will feature split-screen multiplayer for up to two players and seven “massive unique planets” to explore.

Ubisoft held its E3 press conference on June 11 at 1 p.m. PT. The 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo takes place this week, from June 12 to June 14, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Twitch’s official coverage of the event began in earnest Sunday afternoon.
