20 Years of Barrel Rolling by Hanafae 20 Years of Barrel Rolling by Hanafae
:star: PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NO LONGER POSTING FAN ART TO THIS ACCOUNT. Check out my StarsAndOceans account for fan art. :star:

My contribution to :iconstarfox-club: 's 20th anniversary tribute. I went for the original SNES-era color schemes for the characters. It's a bit strange to see Fox with blue eyes, he's had green eyes for so long now :D and the grey thing in the back is supposed to be an Arwing... and yes, I shamely stole the logo from google and slapped it on there XD

20 years ago today Star Fox was released on the SNES in Japan! :dummy: the first "3D" console game that would give us a taste of what the next generation of games was headed towards. Then 4 years later Star Fox 64 was the 1st to use a rumble feature! Then 5 years later Nintendo stabbed the series in the heart :dead:

You know, that just makes me feel like having tea with Peppy and basking into nostalgia and talking about the good old times :D

...and Nintendo didn't do Jack Schitt about it.

But at least we finally have a new game after 9 years (if the 64 remake doesn't count).

Yeah but it's pretty basic for now. We don't know anything about the story. I'm not sure Miyamoto himself knows much, as he said in an article he would like SF to be developed by a 3rd party (or something along those lines, can't remember his exact words). I'm looking forward to when we get more tangible details. But still it's nice to know it's coming :D

Blackopsgamer Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014
Yeah, I can't wait for more details as well. But for now, I can be relieved knowing that there will be a new Starfox game sometime in 2015. By the way, just out of curiosity there hasn't been word on which generation of the team it's going to be (1st gen: James McCloud 2nd gen: Fox McCloud or 3rd gen: Marcus McCloud) has there?

:iconhanafae:
Hanafae Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
No word yet. Miyamoto's demo is a mock-up of sorts made with SF64 character icons and lines of speech, so he can try things out and figure out how the game could play like on Wii U. From what we know, at this stage he's focusing only on game controls and mechanics. Maybe he himself doesn't know yet what the plot is going to be about.

I for one would love it to be 1st gen :)

:iconblackopsgamer:
Blackopsgamer Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014
Yeah, I would be totally cool with whatever gen he chooses. Playing as James would give us a better picture of what he did before he disappeared, or if Miyamoto were to go with 3rd gen we would get to see some cool action from Marcus.
Speaking of 3rd gen (If Miyamoto were to go with 3rd gen) he could do a continuation from the ending in Starfox command where Marcus is born and he follows Fox's footsteps, but instead of retiring for the rest of his life, Fox would rejoin the Starfox team along with his son. Father and son fighting a war together, that I would LOVE to see. But then again, playing as James, seeing what he did before disappearing would be cool too... Like I said, I'm cool with whatever gen he chooses.

This is great! And personally, I would say the series was stabbed in the heart and gutted on the DS.

I for one would hope they'd push the reset button further back than that... but I'm aware that's just my opinion and it's not shared by all ^^;

Well, if they kept Krystal and a couple of the other characters, I wouldn't mind them getting rid of Dinosaur Planet. Especially if they got rid of Tricky.

i never understood why they never continued making the series, it was so good.  Also i don't know why they got rid of Fara?

Hanafae Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The comics lasted for a long time, so I guess like all good things it had to come to an end eventually :) They also doubled as promo for the game, so once the game had been out for a while, I guess they didn't feel the need to extend the publication of the comics any longer. My theory, at least ^^;
Reply
:iconrecneps8:
Recneps8 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
yeah, but why did they never add fara and make the bad comic off of 64?
Reply
:iconhanafae:
Hanafae Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Maybe because of copyright reasons... Fara was sort of Benimaru Itoh's OC, maybe Nintendo didn't want to deal with potential copyright problems regarding her inclusion in a game :shrug:

He's the guy who did the comics and came up with Fara. She sort of belongs to him.

To be honest, I never really played the original SNES game. Shame it's not on the Virtual Console service.

 

Starfox 64, on the other hand, was one of my favorite games on the Nintendo 64. I loved it so much, I got it on my Wii. It was an adjustment using the Gamecube controller to play it, though.

Now that you mention it, I had never realized it's not been released on virtual consoles yet. I was thinking just week about how it would turn out if it were on the 3DS... it's so very polygonal, I'm sure it would bring a brand new dimension to the game, no pun intended. It's always been very 3D, even in it's 2D glory. I've always loved the soundtrack of the game, it's one of my all-time favorite game soundtracks.

Did you try the 3DS remake of SF64? I had my doubts of how the controls would work out at first, because I always got quite intense with the N64 controller when playing the game ^^; But it works surprisingly well, and the updated graphics are gorgeous.

I can't imagine why they wouldn't release the original on Virtual Console. I've heard it was due to technical issues, though.

 

I have never played the 3DS remake. Don't even have a 3DS.
