Ayano sent me some photos and a video of her progress on her Star Fox Assault Krystal cosplay. She's finished the gatling gun, a modified Nerf gun with rotating barrels. It doesn't fire anything though. The flight suit is next. She now has the fabric, but has had very little time to work on the project due to some RL issues. She hopes to have the flight suit done by the Fall sometime. The planned premier of the new costume is at Furry Fiesta in Dallas, February 2015.
I mentioned this one on the podcast briefly. UndyingNephalim is making an epic Star Fox fangame, continuing the legacy of the now cancelled Star Fox: Shadows of Lylat. The game dev trio is competed with its writer (JediAnnSolo and music composer (Morphiul). UndyingNephalim has a couple existing games under his belt (Hyrule: Total War, Antibody, a Star Fox RTS), and the initial videos show great promise.
Along with over a dozen playable characters, there are two versions of Krystal in this game, one from her time in the Cornerian army, and the other as a member of Star Fox. Pivotal to the story is Falyf, a mysterious 'other survivor' of Cerinia, Krystal's doomed homeworld. This new blue vixen pilots an unusual Krazoa-like mech.
There's already tons of videos and a website for this project. Check it out!
Thanks to Omasaki for the heads up.
This morning three new Super Smash Bros characters were revealed: Lucina and Robin (male and female versions) from the Fire Emblem series, and our old standby Captain Falcon from the F-Zero series. Sadly, none of these characters are Krystal.
Because characters from Smash games are revealed all the time, and I don't have enough time to cover every reveal, I have created what I believe to be the latest in monitoring technology. A website that will always have the latest information about the status of Krystal in Smash games. Behold!
More than a year in the making, here it is, the latest episode of the Krystal Archive Podcast, covering the whole year and everything we know about the new Star Fox game Nintendo is developing.
Mr. K here. I promise I've got some new stuff to post, it's just that things keep getting in the way.
I just moved to Austin Texas, where I intend to stay for some time. With the packing, moving, and unpacking, and all the other stuff involved with changing your address, I've had little time for projects like this site.
Then there's Everfree NW, the Seattle Brony Con, which I will be attending for the third year. It takes place on July 4th-6th, though I'm actually heading for Seattle in a couple hours. I know a couple of you visited last year, and I even met one of you. Come by and say hello if you see me. My badge says 'Mr. K'. Also, I'll be cosplaying, like last year, only as a different character. No spoilers, just a hint: I'll be wearing a red polkadot scarf.
After I get back from Everfree, I think the next major life event I have is in September, so I should be able to really get down to business on the site! Sorry for making you wait so long. Life, you know?
Miyamoto took to video to explain that his three early-development projects, and also told us what we knew from this morning: the Star Fox game is not even ready to be shown. Nevertheless, the video does feature a second or two of footage blocked by the player's head. I'll take what I can get.
The (still ongoing) Super Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament has a Fan Favorite winner:
Fox McCloud, played by Kevin "EG PPMD" Nanney!
Congrats to PPMD!
Still waiting to see the winner of the Grand Final and Celebrity Brackets.
Incidentally, Nintendo released hundreds of high-resolution screens and promo pictures from all of its announced games for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. This included a MASSIVELY large picture of Fox McCloud from Smash Bros. 4.
Did you see Miyamoto playing Star Fox on that blurred out screen with the Wii U, because I definitely did. That looked like an Arwing silhouette flying around in all range mode.
The news came a little early by accident. I'm guessing they'll show a trailer for it sometime today.
New Update and Video
Nintendo already gave a secret media briefing to Kotaku. The game is still very early in development, not even enough to know what the gameplay will be like. They expect to be done with the game in a year, so expect a full-fledged trailer by next E3.
Official "Screens" and Another Article
The Time article is now online. Also, Nintendo posted 'official artwork' for the in-development game, which consists mostly of screens from past Star Fox games, no doubt confusing nearly everyone.
The original photo.
My attempt to clean up the screen in the photo.
To kick off the rebuild of the Fangames section, we've got a page for the_randomizer's Brawl Mod, now in version 2! This mod features Krystal from Adventures replacing Princess Peach, including replacing Peach's golf club with Krystal's staff. Version 2 features improved animation and character portraits in-battle and on the character selection screen.
Both versions are available for download on the page. Instructions to setup the mod are inside the Version 2 download.
