Lylat Wars (sorry, Star Fox 64) is just as brilliant now as it was back in the day. Maybe more so, thanks to the luscious graphical update that sets a visual benchmark for the 3DS system. Smooth action and massive replayability factor make this a no-brainer purchase for Nintendo fans, though the lack of online functionality of any kind is slightly galling.

The GAME Group's amazing £14.98 sale is just a distant memory, sadly. As things stand in the harsh light of January 2012, Amazon and Play are both offering a massive saving at £22.99.

Nintendo Explains Lack Of Online Features In Star Fox 64 3D

Wanted To Meet Deadline "As Quickly As Possible"

In my recent 8/10 review of Star Fox 64 3D, I bemoaned the fact that its local All Range multiplayer mode wasn't supplemented by online functionality. Nintendo's Yusuke Amano has now spoken out to explain why their recent revamp was bereft of online features... which boils down to cutting costs and making the deadline "as quickly as possible." At least they're honest.

Star Fox 64 3D Review | Foxy Lazy, You Look So Good

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Developer: Nintendo

Publisher: Nintendo

We really, really want a new Star Fox game.

Two entire console generations have passed without Nintendo resurrecting the beloved aerial combat franchise, featuring only a couple of disappointing ground based adventures (including Assault, just to be clear) and a WiiWare port to satisfy the faithful and patient fanbase. It's been far too long since Fox McCloud, Falco, Peppy and Slippy took to their Arwings, and we're delighted that Nintendo have decided to completely revamp Lylat Wars for the 3DS. Star Fox 3D is just as brilliant as you remember, but does it offer enough beyond nostalgia value to warrant a pricey purchase?

Star Fox 64 3D Review | Foxy Lazy, You Look So Good

In case you don't know, Star Fox 64 3D is a port of the classic N64 rail shooter Lylat Wars that casts players as Fox McCloud: the wingleader of an anthropomorphic group of mercenaries who are tasked with saving the galaxy from an evil scientist. You'll hurtle through a number of corridor-like stages, engaging a selection of aerial and ground units with your lock on laser and powerful bombs. On top of manipulating the aiming reticule, you'll also need to steer your Arwing fighter through an intricate array of obstacles - facilitated by simple velocity controls and the infamous barrel roll. Your wingmen occasionally stray onto the screen, requiring you to take down their pursuers and rewarding prompt assistance with an array of gameplay benefits. The core action is instantly accessible, brilliantly fast and utterly engaging; a classic and seminal experience that feels just as exciting and relevant as it ever did. The multi-stage boss battles are especially enjoyable and put many of their modern ilk to shame.

Star Fox 64 3D

Sadly, Star Fox 64 3D won't be supporting online multiplayer, but there will be local multiplayer, which means that you won't be able to sit back for a few dog fights with your friends unless they're actually in the room with you. On the plus side, for your friends at least, they'll be able to join in thanks to Download Play, which means that you could be the only one forking out for the game!

Nintendo launched an official teaser site for their 3D remake of the N64 classic, known over here as Lylat Wars.

The site doesn't really contain anything at all at the moment aside from some faintly familiar music and a big fat date that all 3DS owners should put into their calendars: July 14th.

Also announced was the launch date for Ocarina of Time 3D, slated for June 16th.

Thanks, andriasang!
