Product Description

Product Description

Please note 3DS console required to play - not compatible with original DS consoles

The Star Fox team triumphantly returns to one of its greatest missions with the remake of Star Fox 64 in full 3D.

The entire Star Fox universe spreads out realistically into the depths of the Nintendo 3DS screen while the 3D visuals give the player a clearer grasp of distance and position. This makes the game more approachable and intuitive, thereby allowing players to focus on the action.

Star Fox 64 3D also puts the two screens of the Nintendo 3DS system to use, with the top screen featuring 3D game play and the bottom screen displaying the various characters and their dialogue.

  • 3D update of Star Fox 64: A complete graphical update brings a Nintendo classic into the glasses-free 3D age
  • Multiplayer: A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce dogfighting action via a local wireless connection on their Nintendo 3DS systems. Multiplayer mode features new power-ups and weapons
  • Thrilling new features ups the Star Fox mania: The new Score Attack Mode allows the player to revisit any planet and play for a high score on that level. New features also allow first-time players to enjoy the excitement of Star Fox

Manufacturer's Description

14 years after Lylat Wars dashed into space to save the universe, get ready to live through the battle for the Lylat system once again as a re-worked offering for the Nintendo 3DS launches on 9th September. The game, which previously appeared on the Nintendo 64, now makes a return in Star Fox 64 3D.

With bold new 3D graphics, a faithfully restored script, fresh voiceovers, and a new multiplayer mode which uses the Nintendo 3DS camera to send you live video footage of your opponents reactions as you chase them around the skies, Star Fox 64 3D feels both comfortably familiar yet challengingly new.

Pitched in the middle of a battle for supremacy of the Lylat system, you take control of Fox McCloud's' signature Arwing starfighter and help pilot him through insurmountable odds as he battles to protect his home planet of Corneria and rid the entire Lylat system from the onslaught of the evil Andross. Teammates Peppy Hare, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad join the mission and help you to progress through levels, providing timely hints during battle about what to expect from the enemy.

With Fox McCloud heroically at the helm, Star Fox 64 3D allows you to use the in-built gyro sensor of the Nintendo 3DS to plot your way through battles more instinctively. You will also be able to choose the more conventional controls if that suits your style.

Boasting sumptuous graphics, which have been given a fresh makeover for Nintendo 3DS, playing in 3D allows you to better judge distances and avoid oncoming enemies, attacks and asteroids. Cut scenes are now more cinematic and the inclusion of 3D visuals will make for a more immersive experience.

If the battle for the Lylat system isn't enough for you, then take advantage of the multiplayer mode via the Download Play option. Play against up to three friends and take part in soaring dogfights above environments based on locations in the main single-player game. A range of game modes have been developed for the multiplayer option to increase competition amongst friends. In Survival mode players must fight each other and compete to be the last pilot remaining. Point Battle mode will see pilots receive a point for each rival they destroy and the first to a set total will be declared the winner. Time Battle mode pits you against the clock to take down your friends as many times as possible in the allotted time given.

Unique to Nintendo 3DS, you will be able to use the Nintendo 3DS camera to stream live video of your friends within the game - watch their faces react in real-time while you chase and shoot at them! Enjoy the moment when you take a friend out of the game and marvel at your own image when you top the leader board at the end of each multiplayer game.

In a first for Lylat Wars, the game has been localised into five languages - German, French, Spanish, Italian and English, meaning players who could not play the game previously in their native language can now enjoy the full experience on their Nintendo 3DS.

Star Fox 64 3D invites players to take on the role of legendary Fox McCloud as they lead a fearless squadron of fighters in fierce aerial combat to battle the evil forces of Andross and save the galaxy from destruction. The rich 3D visuals provide a remarkable sense of depth, distance and position as players dodge meteors and blast enemy fighters out of the sky.

A complete graphical update brings a Nintendo classic into the era of portable 3D fun. The game makes effective use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s dual screens: The top screen features 3D aerial combat, while the bottom screen displays characters and dialogue.


  • There are two control methods for the player to experience. The Nintendo 64 Mode offers original controls, while the new Nintendo 3DS Mode uses the motion controls of the built-in Gyro Sensor in the Nintendo 3DS system.
  • Trusted wingmen Peppy, Slippy and Falco are along for the ride – if one of them is chased or captured by an enemy, players must act to protect them in order to keep their team strong.
  • Each mission takes players through a different planet of the Lylat system as they blast enemies, collect powerups and fight powerful bosses on their way to the final battle.
  • A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce aerial combat via a local wireless connection (using four systems and one game card via DS Download Play). The multiplayer mode also includes new power-ups and special weapons. Players can use the Nintendo 3DS system’s inner camera to display a live video feed of their faces as they battle, bringing a new level of fun and personalization to the multiplayer experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A faithful remake of a classic game 21 Oct 2011
By Chris
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The original N64 version was fantastic, and this remake really does it justice.

Good points:

- A very accessible game that is friendly to new players.
- Controls are VERY easy to master, and the training option is very thourough and well paced.
- Can also provide even veteran gamers with a good challenge.
- Lots to shoot at and blow up, and you can practically feel the impacts of your shots as the enemy craft shudder and break up on impact. So satisfying!
- Lots of hidden routes to take, and two main endings with a load of minor differences depending on how you played.
- The most challenging part of the game is getting the gold medals in every level on score attack - some levels took me a long time to smash.
- Submarine and tank missions are easy to master and don't break up the gameplay.
- The visuals are a beautiful improvement on the old old game, while still being true to the original.
- While all the voice casting has been redone, it again remains faithful to the original's wonderfully corny voicing.
- Great soundtrack with memorable tunes, yet again very loyal to the original.
- The 3D effect really does work very well!
- The gyro controls are surprisingly well done, though it isn't my thing. You may want to switch off 3D with gyro, though, as you'll be moving around and will often lose the 3D effect and smash up your arwing (that's the ship you fly).

Bad points
- Veterans may just love the nostalgia of this, but those wingmen of yours will still whine at you and still don't know how to just do a somersault!
- They've given the training guy a voice. But he creeps me out!!! Volume off... lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential. 28 Mar 2014
By R
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have Starfox on the SNES and Lylat Wars on the N64.

This 3ds version is not just a simple port of the n64 version with 3d thrown in. It has been completely re-mastered from the ground up.
The 3d effect is not simply a gimmick, it really does add extra depth to the gameplay.

If you've not played a Starfox game before, I urge you to get this. It's so well made and a lot of fun.

If you have played Starfox before and are wondering if this is worth it, don't even hesitate. It'll make you fall in love with your 3ds all over again.

One minor concern, on my 3ds some of the 3d effect is a bit fuzzy. On my 3ds XL however, it's glorious. In my opinion this is far better suited to the larger screen that the XL has.

Oh, and multiplayer mode is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOSTALGIA CITY 24 Mar 2014
By Zack

You're probably looking at this because you played it as a child almost two decades ago and you'll probably complete this game in less than 2-3 hours maybe once more if you didn't do the most difficult path then never touch it again and its mother loving worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best gets better 30 Oct 2014
By Toaster
Verified Purchase
They took what was probably my favourate Nintendo game of all time and made it better!

Starfox 64 3D is a faithful remake of the original classic updated for modern hardware. The gameplay has not changed and you will be transported back in time if you have ever played the original. The 3D modes are quite fantastic (if you can overcome the headaches and positioning issues) and really add to an already great game.

If like me you are awaiting what is in store next for Fox and co then this will make the Wii U game's wait just that little bit easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing as the first time round! 18 Sep 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember playing starfox 64 when it first came out and I fell in love with it, and the same goes for this new 3DS version. Its just perfect! Very true to the original. The graphics are greatly improved and the 3D is just breath taking! It adds a whole new take on the game with its new gyro sensor controls(which can be tricky but fun to try and master!)
Sure the game isnt the longest but has very high replay value with different routes and multi player battle.
this will keep me going until Mario appears in November! Well done starfox on your glorious return!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I'm older it challenges me all over again! 17 Jan 2014
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved this game when I was 12. I spent many happy b hours guiding the legend that is Fox McCloud through the lylat system. The game challenged me immensely at first but I soon mastered it and could get through to full completion.

Sadly, those ace piloting skills have long since left me but this refresh means I can experience the same challenge I had all those years ago with find nostalgia.

The graphics have been suitably enhanced adding great depth to the game play. The controls are wonderfully comfortable on the circle pad but it also has motion controls using the inbuilt gyroscope, I personally order the traditional controls but it just shows that this isn't a rushed rerelease.

Also new is the opportunity to save progress throughout b the game v so it's a great companion for your commute.

Multiplayer is also available which makes innovative use of the 3ds camera to show your opponents faces.

This was always a great game and it's good to see Nintendo show it some more love for this release. I say more n64 remakes like this and I will be one happy consumer.

It is a great game, the only real downside is that it is extremely short. I mean, you beat the game in about 2 hours play time.
