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.

Nadal Wins 11th French Open Title
But Nadal himself wasn't too bothered. "I have never been insane about this kind of stuff". "You can't live with this feeling. Since Nadal won his first major at Roland Garros in 2005, the "Big Four" have claimed 48 of the past 53 Grand Slam titles.

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.
