The team at Game Informer have had the chance to play the first chapter of Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch and also catch up with the game’s producer Matt Rose. Mr. Rose explained that the Star Fox integration into the game should be seen as a crossover rather than simply a guest role. Here’s what the team had to say about the inclusion of Fox McCloud and company in the Nintendo Switch version:
“When I asked if this is the level of integration I should expect for Star Fox within Starlink, I was told it was only the beginning. Not only is Fox a big part of the Starlink storyline, he has his own missions and his own storyline to get through, as well, with some other familiar faces appearing along the way. If the developers are not overstating his role, then Starlink has the makings of being more of a crossover than a host for a cosmetic guest.”
