Star Fox fans will remember the remake of Star Fox 64 that released soon after the 3DS’s release. However, it looks like we almost got another Star Fox remake on the handheld. During a Reddit AMA, Dylan Cuthbert discussed a 3DS remake of the original SNES Star Fox that Q-Games pitched to Nintendo. Cuthbert was a major force in the creation of Star Fox, pioneering the 3D technology that allowed such a complex game to run on the Super Nintendo. According to him, it was Nintendo who shot down the 3DS remake. Check out the full AMA here.
We did a old-school re-make demo like this of the original StarFox for the 3DS back after we did the remake of StarFox 64 and showed it to Nintendo but they weren’t interested unfortunately.
