The treehouse showing made it a must buy for me! Starfox exclusive missions as well is the icing on the cake. The gameplay looks really fun.

And, if the game turns out to be as good as it looks, it might lead to a new open world Star Fox. :)

While I think some ideas here could work for Star Fox, I think some changes would be in order.  For example, I would have the rail shooter sections in there as part of traveling to new systems or planet to planet.  Also, Star Fox needs more structure than this I think.  But I would be down for a Star Fox taking ideas from this, certainly.



I actually got to play this at E3 and in the process of writing a preview for another site I write for. It's actually pretty fun, nice difficulty level. A bit on the tricky side but I suspect that Ubi is semi-coaxing you to buy better ships and weapons to make the game easier. Definitely feels very Star Fox at times. Playing with Fox and doing barrel rolls with his Arwing was pretty sweet.

I just wish they weren't pushing the whole modular space ship toy thing with this, and that the game wouldn't cost 75 bucks just for what I assume is a basic set included. Otherwise pretty solid space-shooter.

Yeah, after watching the gameplay it definitely seems appealing.
I wouldn't mind if it was just the ships and maybe pilots who had to be bought separately, but the weapon changing seems pretty integral to the gameplay, and I haven't read anything that tells me you can just earn/unlock them in-game.

$75 gets you the game's main character pilot, a ship, and a set of weapons.  This allows you to play all the core content, no missions or planets gated off.

With Switch, the starter kit includes the main character of the base game, Star Fox, the Arwing, and weapons.  So again, no gated content since you have the Star Fox missions available out of the box as well.

You don't need to. Everything is available digitally.

And why shouldn't it take ideas from this? After all, Banjo-Kazooie built upon Super Mario 64, Castlevania: Symphony of The Night built upon Metroid, and they were great games in their own right.

If it comes with the Star Fox DLC and isn't expensive, I might check it out.
