Star Fox: Barrel Rolling Through the Ages [Infographic]

Star Fox: Barrel Rolling Through the Ages

The Star Fox series is a game changer, quite literally. Its development teams have pushed the limits of video games, innovating 3D spaces and polygonal graphics, even designing new hardware when current technology wasn’t enough. So as Star Fox Zero approaches, it’s time to do a barrel roll through the franchise history. 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). Let’s go!
