StarFox fans will get a kick out of the launch trailer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas, thanks to Fox McCloud’s appearance in it. The reason for his inclusion is that he and the Arwing are exclusively available for the Nintendo Switch version of Starlink, so he can be used as your character and ship for the entire campaign.
The Starlink: Battle for Atlas Retail Starter Pack is now available and includes the game, one starship, one pilot, a variety of weapons, the Starlink controller mount, and a poster for the suggested retail price of $74.99 USD. Yes, this is another toys-to-life game, so who knows if the gimmick will last, but it looks cool if anything else.
Head on up above to check out Fox McCloud and the Arwing in Starlink.
