Star Fox is coming to Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Today at E3 2018, Ubisoft announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Starlink would feature characters from Nintendo's own action space simulator: Star Fox.

Similar to Nintendo's Amiibo toy line, which brings physical toys into the virtual world within compatible video games, Starlink will allow players to collect and build toy starships, which will "instantly come to life on your screen", according to Ubisoft.

We finally got some more information about Starlink: Battle for Atlas during Ubisoft's E3 2018 Press Conference including a release date and some exciting news about an exclusive add-on character.

Melania Trump `had big operation and can´t fly for a…
Mr Trump introduced "our great First Lady" at the event, and said: "She went through a little rough patch but she's doing great". She could not attend the Singapore summit because she is not allowed to fly in her one month of recovery, according to Donald.

On Switch, the game will be getting Star Fox-related content, with Fox McCloud shown off in an ARWing in a trailer. You can check out some new footage in the Star Fox announcement trailer embedded above. As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too.

Starlink is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch on October 16. Whether or not it can find success where other toys-to-life games have failed remains to be seen, but we're guessing spaceships and Star Fox will definitely give it a fighting chance.
