Star Fox 64 3DS landing July 14

Wednesday, 13th April 2011 10:43 GMT By Stace Harman

After Ocarina of Time 3DS was given a firm release date yesterday, it’s now been announced that the 3D remake of Star Fox 64 will follow barely a month later. A veritable summer of fun, to be sure.

The official Star Fox 64 3DS website is carrying a short teaser clip of Fox, Slippy and co. dashing down a very long empty corridor before jumping into their ships and blasting off.

More excitingly, the site is emblazoned with the launch date: 2011.7.14 – though there’s currently no mention of which region this applies to.

Destructoid pondered the significance of the game’s absence from Nintendo’s second-quarter US lineup, speculating that this could point to a Japan-only launch on July 14, or that it could just be because Nintendo is planning a bigger reveal at a later date.

Additional screens have appeared on Andriasang.

    SWEET, THIS WILL GO EXCELLENTLY WITH SUPER MARIO 64 DS, ZELDA 3DS AND WHATEVER 13+ YEAR OLD GAME NINTENDO WANTS TO PORT NEXT.

    Dear Nintendo,

    If you’re not going to make new IP, please make new games for your existing IP.
    If you’re not going to make new games for existing IP, please do remakes of existing games, rather than lazy ports.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone.

    As a StarFox lover, I can definitely say that I won’t buy this game. Too many broken promises, Nintendo. First, you couldn’t even make a proper sequel to the SNES classic. StarFox 64 is a tremendous pile of falcon dung, mostly due to its horribly annoying music and “free roaming” levels. Time won’t make it any better.

    Make us a new game — one worthy of the original. That might just capture our attention and our imaginations.

    Nintendo re-release the same game more than EA Sport’s division.

    Nintendo sucks and has sucked since the NES and GB days, so fuck you Nitnendo and die from a tsunami or something.

    @9 Please shut up, you biased little troll. Nobody cares about your disrespectful racism and format bias.

    I will be getting one once there’s a solid selection of games worth getting on the format, as I do with every new games machine. I never bother with early adoption when it comes to hardware.

    @12 listen here you! there will either be 1 decent game for 3DS yearly or nothing at all, so there wont be a solid selection of games worth getting, more like gaseous, very little and far between.

    #13 well again your point is not valid, right now they are two decent games on the 3DS ghost recon and ridge racer, then later this year will have kid icarus and the resident evil ones, so they made just more than one decent game in one year.

    @15 The only idiot rambling on about it damaging the industry is SOMI.

    this isnt against you this is to everyone who says its a import or Nintendo make the same games all the time but i have to say nintendo has made abit to many OOT imports but the fact that the new OOT is a remake and has been made from scratch doesnt make it an import and im pretty sure SOMI is the guy who wanted the maker of mario to have cancer and die? :S

    Do we need more proof that Nintendo is the laziest developer in the industry?

    @20 Nah, that would be Capcom.

    @21: Hey at least they add SOMETHING. And they take risks with games like the new DmC for example.

    Because Twilight Princess and WInd waker, Mario Galaxy were not risks at all. And completely ignoring that they are rebooting Kid Icarus for the 3ds. THats not a risk at all. *Rolls eyes*
