Star Fox 64 3D Does A Barrel Roll In July

imageStar Fox 64 3D is preparing for launch. It’s Nintendo’s next 3DS game after The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D.


When I played Star Fox 64 3D the Arwing appears as if it was hovering over the screen. Otherwise the first level in my hands-on was exactly like Star Fox 64 without pop up messages from Fox’s crew.


Star Fox 64 3D comes out on July 14 in Japan. Nintendo announced the game for North America and Europe, but did not set a release date.

    “Never give up, trust your instincts”

    (Sorry, just about every time I reminisce about the game that quote pops in my head)

    • I think there are TONS of quotes like that for everyone.

      Mines are:

      “Hey, Einstein! I’m on YOUR side!”


      “Geez, Louise! What is THAT?!”

      Falco Lombardi FTW!

      • Gee, I’ve been saved by Fox! How SWELL!

        i use that one in Melee/Brawl a lot lmao

      • Dimentionalist


    • Jeebs

      – “Slippy?”

      “Don’t party just yet!”

      • OneOkami

        That reminds me of another one I remember well (but not for a “good” reason): “Fox, Get this guy off me!”


  • Zero_Destiny

    Oh man no messages from the crew makes this like a downgrade. >8(
    I’m very interested in this still. Seems like a perfect match for 3D. So long as it doesn’t make you motion sick or dizzy.

    • It was the demo that had no messages. The game reel in one of 3DS trailers had a message pop up from Fox(play as other pilots?!) when it got to this game.

      • Exkaiser

        Fox has the occasional pop-up line in the game…

        • … I forgot that. Still, that means there are going to be pop-messages in the game.

  • Xeahnort

    I bet that this game will be renamed as Lylat Wars 3D in Europe.

    • Probably.

      But who knows. The first two “Star Fox” games had to change their names in Europe due to copyright issues.

      But I understand those issues don’t exist any more. They can perfectly put the name “Star Fox 3D” (since the original “Star Fox” was called “Starwing”) and call it a day.

    • Jeebs

      Wouldn’t mind if they did that. StarFox 64 3D doesn’t really have much of a ring to it.

    June is Zelda. July is Star Fox. If Kid Icarus is in August, I’m getting a 3DS this year

  • It would’ve been amazing if they were releasing it then in America. That’s the day after my birthday!

  • Now you can rescue Slippy’s incompetent pilot ass IN 3D!

  • Nintendo needs to bring back the original Corneria theme. You know, the one from the original Star Fox. It was awesome…
