Today’s Super Smash Bros. screenshot should have Star Fox fans excited, as developer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that Andross is an assist trophy in the new game. Here’s Sakurai’s post on Miiverse is rather hilarious: Pic of the day. Oh, Uncle Andross. He really isn’t very considerate. While it does’t get us any closer to getting a real Star Fox game, it’s nice to see his nemesis return in the form of an assist trophy. What do you think of this one? local_offer Masahiro Sakurai Nintendo Super Smash Bros wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when WarioForever Ok, like in Brawl. Now, is there something new, or completely different? ( then I explode) CEObrainz I want to see what the next 100-man smash looks like, including the new cpu/characters that will replace the alloys from brawl. helpo http://www.change.org/petitions/nintendo-adding-online-multiplayer-and-voice-chat-to-virtual-console-games Thomas Vienna Wow, that looks nothing like the Andross I knew from way back on the N64. What happened to him? Kyle its the Andross from SNES Thomas Vienna Oh, I see. FutureFox Its hard to imagine, but that original 3D rendering was groundbreaking. Such a cool boss fight. steveb944 Great. Now I want to play Star Fox Mario Oh Sakurai! Andross isn’t your uncle! He’s Oikonny’s! Daniel Gonzalez I think Star Fox fans would be more excited if Ninty would just announce a new Star Fox game. Make it happen already Nintendo. jjbredesen I think out of Metroid, Star Fox and F-Zero, SF is the game that will be made first, they have some teams that we don’t know what are working on so i hope we will get it as a game in Summer 2015. Hoping for a Assault style game, i was a big fan of the direction of the artstyle it took, and that they tried to do 3rd person shooting. The story sucked and the 3rd person controlls sucked, and so did the landmaster, but if they could make game in the same dark style, with Mass Effect style cover system, and lots of different weapons a great mulitplayer and lots of maps it would be fantastic. And more ARWING stages! darkcreap Did you try Starfox 64? It was great. I haven’t played Assault. I missed the Gamecube generation… jjbredesen I loved Star Fox 64, and the remake was fantastic! I was really young under the N64 era (i am 15) so i have not played most of the games properly before later, but i just played it a couple of weeks ago (on N64) and it has aged really well. And the voice was great 😛 You have got to try Assault and Adventure, they are fantastic games. Adventure is like a Starfox/Zelda crossover. darkcreap Yep. I am 29 right now. If you see Starfox for SNES it hasn’t aged well. Not their fault, it is simply that technology wasn’t that advanced on that time. But Starfox on the N64… is superb. The voice acting does a lot. It wouldn’t work so well if it weren’t for the voice acting. jjbredesen Yeah, same goes for Assault and Adventure, if you played N64 i don’t think you will like there voices especially slippy, but on the gameplay and story side its fantastic. Adventure looks fantastic and so does assault, the story of assault is in my opinion a bit crappy, but its not that bad, and the 10 missions are well made. Only problem is there is very few arwing stages. The mulitplayer is fantastic and me and my friends loved it, we played it all the time. You can use all the vehicles and weapons and explore maps that where pretty huge for the time, considering the disc space i am really impressed Nintendo could fit them in. http://i2.minus.com/iNWOFYw1Wk7H9.jpg http://www.romstation.fr/uploads/7a6c6858730b66be9494b22c21c82a69.png http://i28.tinypic.com/wkn0ib.png http://www.gamesaktuell.de/screenshots/1280×1024/2009/07/starfox_assault_gamecube_4_wii_hd_high_res_emulator_dolphin.jpg http://220.127.116.11/media/shots/66828-Star_Fox_Adventures_(Europe)_(En,Fr,De,Es,It)_(v1.01)-2.jpg darkcreap Yes, please!!! I loved Starfox 64. I would like to play Assault. Christian Schoff I’m glad they’re using this Andross. Making him a monkey in SF64 was weird to me. Greg Lanciotti what is an assist trophy? Starfoxguy The user grabs it and damages all other players. Greg Lanciotti gotcha Starfoxguy I have been waiting for something Starfox related in Smash for so long.
