Star Fox joins the Battle for Atlas in Starlink E3 trailer

Starlink, Ubisoft's toys-to-life game about flying around in cool space ships, is launching on October 26th worldwide, on all platforms, but Nintendo Switch players are getting a special surprise. "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 were given a new look at the game, and how Star Fox will feature. Players will be tasked with forging alliances, hiring crews, and building starships in order to save Atlas from the oppressive enemy legion.

The expansion will be made available exclusively to the Nintendo Switch version of the game, though Starlink will also launch on PS4 and Xbox One. You can check out the new trailer below, and see here for how the game works. While you don't need to attach ships to play the game, we imagine Nintendo Switch owners will want the Arwing. That game was also represented at E3 2018, with Ubisoft focusing on the upcoming Donkey Kong DLC that it on the way for it.


Ubisoft CEO Yves Guilemot called the inclusion of Star Fox a "dream", and Star Fox creator Shigeru Miyamoto joined Guillemot on stage to help announce the tie-in.

When we first saw footage for Starlink: Battle for Atlas, we were immediately intrigued. Each pilot has different skills to gain an advantage in battle.
