Star Fox is coming to Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas

The game, "Starlink: Battle for Atlas", will be available October 16 for Nintendo Switch, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, although only Switch players will be able to experience the Star Fox crossover.

The introduction of Star Fox into Ubisoft's new space game is completely unexpected, but not necessarily a surprise.

Sure, it's not a full-fledged StarFox game, but I'll take it, especially considering that Starlink is a toys-to-life game where you attach miniature spaceships to your controller and, in the case of Switch, that means a special Arwing model.

Neal starred on America's Got Talent in 2008, going on to scoop first place on the talent show after winning the audience over. He beat out violinist group Nuttin' But Stringz and singer/pianist Eli Mattson to take home the million-dollar prize.

During Ubisoft's E3 presentation, the publisher released a new trailer for their Toys-to-Life sci-fi title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

On Switch, the game will be getting Star Fox-related content, with Fox McCloud shown off in an ARWing in a trailer. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly. Starlink was first revealed back at E3 2017, and this year, it made another appearance.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas comes to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 16. "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".
