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

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

During the presentation today, viewers were happily surprised by a trailer featuring Star Fox, and Ubisoft announced that he will be an exclusive for Nintendo Switch along with his iconic Arwing ship.

With games like Skull and Bones and Assassin's Creed Odyssey on the horizon for Ubisoft, you'd be forgiven if you forgot about its upcoming toys-to-life game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Much like other toys-to-life games (think Skylanders and Disney Infinity), you'll use physical toys to claim in-game goodies. Complete with their own toys.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas finds players part of a group of heroic interstellar pilots tasked with saving the Atlas star system from the Forgotten Legion, an evil robot force.

Releasing exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, you'll be able to build a toy modular Arwing, attach it to the controller and use it within the game's space fights. As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too. Starlink was first revealed back at E3 2017, and this year, it made another appearance.

Star Fox is crossing over into an Ubisoft game. Because Starlink is getting StarFox content, exclusive to Nintendo Switch, when it launches on October 16.
