There's no getting around it. Star Fox 64 is easily one of my favorite games of all time. Nintendo practically reached into my wallet and shook the price of a 3DS out of it when they announced that the classic Nintendo 64 shooter was coming to the 3DS.
Seriously, I'm compelled to play Star Fox 64 once a year. Still, I've got to criticize Nintendo on one point. During a retailer briefing in Japan several twitter accounts let loose the following information:
-The game has 3DS mode, N64 mode, and Battle mode.
-In 3DS mode, you use the gyro sensor to control your ship.
-Battle mode supports four players
-Battle mode will support download play.
-During combat, your face is shown as an icon, allowing for easy identification of who's who.
-The game will not have online play via Wi-Fi Connection.
... What? Seriously? No online dogfighting? What about maybe online co-op? None of that?
This is bull sh**.
Let's hope Nintendo reverses this decision between now and E3 2011. Game Revolution will be there liveblogging the press conferences, getting hands-on impressions, and delivering everything you need to know straight to your eyeballs. Check out our E3 2011 tag page for the latest updates.
