We’ll cover the main titles, but we’ll also look at little-known releases (like Star Fox Super Weekend and Star Fox Game Watch), cancelled titles (Star Fox 2 and Star Fox Virtual Boy), their video gaming roots (Starglider and X), and even the games they’ve influenced (Pokémon Stadium 2 and Wario Ware).
