“The Star Fox Team is back! But this time, their mission is to fight for their very existence!
The Mario Bros. have decided that the Star Fox franchise no longer has a place within the grand Nintendo universe, and has set out to destroy the Lylat System forever, with the help of characters from more successful Nintendo IPs! They have also posed as Andross in order to hire the infamous Star Wolf team, a rival band of mercenaries led by Wolf O’Donnell, to distract Star Fox while they pull off their plans! Can Fox and his team put aside their former friendship with the Nintendo All-Stars to save both the Lylat System and everything associated with their franchise?”

User Review Information
My jaw dropped, and I'm too busy playing this to pick it up!Reviewed By: Red Soul on 10 Nov 2022
I never played Starfox/Starwing on the SNES back in the day outside of the occasional rental. It always felt bland, slow, plodding… a technology demonstrator more than a game that didn’t hold a candle to the likes of Virtua Racing on the Mega Drive playability wise.
However, fans will be fans, and they’ve done it again! if Starfox was a technological flex for the SNES back in the day, this hack here is the culmination of fan flexing, in the best of ways.
With performance optimizations galore, a myriad of options bordering from necessary to borderline unthinkable (multiplayer!), a completely new set of planets to visit while still containing the original game, and much much more, this is the definitive way to enjoy this classic that suffered from technological shortcomings that didn’t allow its greatness to shine through in the past.
Now, it finally can shine.
