Watch A Trailer Rundown Of Star Fox 64 3D’s New Controls In Action

By Ishaan . June 22, 2011 . 9:01am


The last Star Fox 64 3D trailer focused on a battle with Star Wolf. This one shows off the controls, including the new gyro controls that can be used to steer the Arwing in 3DS mode.


The video’s in Japanese, so here’s a helpful control chart that was displayed on the 3DS bottom screen in early screenshots of the game.


The final version of the game may or may not have these displayed on the bottom screen. More recent screenshots depict the characters on the bottom, and — in the case of multiplayer games — the faces of other players, picked up by the inner camera.


Multiplayer battles can be held with a single copy of the game, since Star Fox 64 3D supports Download Play. Japan gets the game on July 14th, and the U.S. will see it on September 11th. If you own a 3DS, you can download a 3D trailer for it from the eShop.

    1:55 FTW!

  • I like how this remake has gotten more excitement than any of the previously released sequels. It’s totally understandable, since it looks so awesome.

    And I really couldn’t stand that plastic-looking, Saturday morning cartoon character model they used for Fox in the Assault and Command games. This “Classic Fox” is much better.

    Everything was great until I saw those bombs.

    I KNOW the explosions of the original smart bombs were much, much bigger. I don’t know why they miniaturized them so much–the big ones would have looked much better in 3D.

    • Maybe that’s the thing… it’s a 2D video of a 3D product…

  • Good, they didn’t stick with that stupid design of Fox for this.

  • darkfox1

    R is how you Barrel roll jus saying.

  • blah blah

    I’m gonna be using R a lot in this game.

  • Jeebs

    I’m quite impressed with how this turned out graphically. Man, that music gives me chills. Nostalgic. *Sigh*

  • before see this trailer I never know that star fox 3ds is really that exciting …
