Even if we didn't spoil the surprise in the title, it's probably clear which Nintendo character fits best within an adventure game set in space.

Star Fox is back, baby. Fox McCloud and Arwings will be Nintendo Switch exclusives. Starlink is following in the footsteps of games like Disney Infinity and Skylanders, as it allows players to construct in-game ships using real-world, modular toys.

Those who have been eagerly waiting for the game to release will be happy to learn that Starlink Battle for Atlas will release on October 16th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Mr. Miyamoto was invited onstage as well, and was given a gift from the Starlink team; a pretty nice looking statue of an Arwing and Fox. How it all works is described in the trailer you see below.
