In a surprise announcement, Ubisoft unveiled that The Star Fox team will be joining in on the fun in the upcoming space adventure game Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Debuted at last year’s E3 as one of Ubisoft’s’ two games heading to the Nintendo Switch. While a decent amount of gameplay and demos were shown as well as the toy-to-life ship building system, it seems that the French game publisher has a couple more tricks up its sleeves.

In the audience, was none other than the creator of Star Fox himself, Shigeru Miyamoto. Co-founder and Chairman of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot surprised Mr. Miyamoto with a prototype version of the Arwing used in the game. It’s unknown if this will be available for purchase, but given the deep integration between the upgradable models and the game, I would guess these will be hitting shelves with the game later this fall.

 

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be available October 16, 2018.

 

Pre-orders are now available on Amazon
