Star Fox Command, the Nintendo DS incarnation of the popular 3D space shooter, is due out in Japan in less than a month. In anticipation of release day, Famitsu.com has revealed a few more details about the game.
For instance, DS rumble pack owners will be able to shake up their in-flight experience with force feedback. Regarding length, the game will feature more than 30 stages set in a number of scenic areas, such as deserts, space, oceans, and flaming caves. Famitsu also confirmed that a number of pilots from the previous Star Fox games, each with their own quirks, will be back for the DS version.
BLG writes: "The original titles are classics with near-infinite replayability. Later releases, however, have stumbled. Usually, they’re hampered by attempted innovation with new control schemes or gimmicks. Still, there’s a lot to enjoy with the beloved Nintendo franchise. To celebrate, we’re going to rank the best Star Fox games in the franchise. To come up with the order, we’re mixing in a little bit of Metacritic ranking and author opinion."
