Star Fox 64 Joins The Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console


L36RX5c9WfanU8nB4tE6GXhifODPXV8N Star Fox 64, the original Star Fox reboot, will be easily accessible again in North America. The Nintendo 64 game has just joined the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console. This is the second time it is being added to the Virtual Console library in North America, as it joined the Nintendo Wii’s back on April 2, 2007.


In Star Fox 64, players follow Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare, and Slippy Toad as they attempt to save the Lylat system from Andross. This version of the game featured realistic, 3D ships and environments, voice acting, levels where you’d go into the Landmaster tank or Blue-Marine sub, up to four player multiplayer in Battle Royal, Point Match, and Time Trial modes. If you decide to go through it again, remember to go through all of Meteo’s Warp Points to unlock the Katina level and all of Sector X’s Warp Points so you can visit Sector Z!


Star Fox 64 is $9.99 in the Nintendo Wii U eShop.
