Here's a new trailer from UndyingNephalim showing of two new characters for Star Fox: Event Horizon, with a bit of Krystal thrown in for backstory. James McCloud, Fox's father, and the wizard Randorn, a character from the unreleased Dinosaur Planet. In UndyingNephalim's game, Randorn is Krystal's father. He pilots an extremely odd Krazoa Palace-like ship. There's even a possible spoiler that helps relate Krystal to the mysterious new Cerinian fox character, Falyf.
These two characters will only be playable for backers of the Patreon project who donate $7 or more per month.
We previously talked about doing this, but I've made it official. The Krystal Archive now has a Twitter account. All posts on the Krystal Archive will get published there automatically, or at least, that's the claim of TwitterFeed, the app I'm using to do this. One way or another, I'll make sure it works. For now, here's the link.
In case you missed the story on the podcast, the "KrystalArchive" Twitter account is suspended. Apparently someone had registered it a few years ago and began posting as me, using my RL photo and everything. I have no idea how they did it or why. Freaky.
A new podcast after only two months?! Madness! In this episode I quickly go over the dozens of new posts since the last episode and talk about upcoming content. No question or comment emails this time. Send in your questions!
In a previous post, we talked about a Star Fox game deal coming up. It has now been revealed as Star Fox 64 3D, which can be purchased for $29.99 instead of $39.99 until October 2nd. Not quite the bombshell we were hoping for, but hey, if you haven't picked it up, now would be a great time!
Wishing to speed up his work on Star Fox: Event Horizon (and other games), Undyingnephalim turns to you, the fans, for financial support with Patreon. While I normally wouldn't post such things, Undyingnephalim has proven himself fully capable of delivering, it's just a matter of how long we are willing to wait. I will be donating to his champaign, and I hope you will too.
For those unfamiliar, Patreon is a way of pledging a little money each month, rather than a large single donation. Every little bit helps.
Some new videos and images have surfaced of Bayonetta's Star Fox costume. I particularly love how she 'suits up' with her Arwing guns. Check out the closeup shot of those guns!
Even Arwings make appearances in some cutscenes, taking the place of fighter jets in the original cutscene. Here's a video that talks about that. WARNING: This last video is a bit more gory.
"He's LYING! Krystal has to be in the game! They wouldn't leave her out again. Not this time! Don't give up, people! Fight for Krystal! FIGHT! Oh God... Oh God... Oh God... *breaks down in tears*" - Glitcher
"Well this sucks bollocks. She'd damn well be on DLC. This proves Nintendo hates both her and Wolf." - the_randomizer
"I speak Japanese, so maybe I can ask Sakurai directly if Krystal will ever be in the game via DLC, because frankly, this is BS in my opinion :/ Failing that, the game will be hacked." - the_randomizer
"No Krystal..." - Ederys
"it's okay that krystal is not in the game..." - Rareware#1Fan
I was reading through some of the comments you guys have been making about the new Smash roster. I don't mean to make fun of your disappointment. Few can be more disappointed than me. But, you've gotta admit, this obsessive disappointment is kinda funny when you think about it. :D
Just a small post with a small bit of news. As you may or may not know, Nintendo is doing a series of game sales based on the characters in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, in anticipation of the official 3DS launch of the game in North America. Each week, a different set of games goes on sale based on characters and their universes. Fox McCloud is included among those characters in the sale beginning September 25th, along with Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Kirby, King Dedede, Pikmin and Olimar, Pac-Man, and the Animal Crossing Villager.
It's most likely only going to be Star Fox 64, for the Wii U's Virtual Console. (eShop is for Wii U and 3DS, Wii Shop Channel is for the original Wii, and I believe you can get Star Fox 64 on both.) But you never know, Nintendo could pull a surprise move and also list the original Star Fox or even (gasp!) Star Fox 2 for sale on the eShop.
Stay tuned, and we'll see.
Oh, by the way... Hi! I'm Dogman15. I'm going to be helping Mr. Krystal out with a few posts. I wrote the last two posts.
Remember the First Left 4 Dead 2 Krystal mod we posted? That was Krystal in her Assault uniform. Goldmember did a good job with that. But there's also another Krystal mod, this one made by Bitterskunk, featuring Krystal in her Adventures outfit.
As with the other Krystal mod, this one replaces Rochelle. And like most character skin mods that replace models, the mouth does not move. However, this mod is unique in that it turns the game's Electric Guitar melee weapon into Krystal's staff from Star Fox Adventures. No staff sound effects, so her staff still sounds like a guitar. (If you have sounds for Krystal's staff, let us know so that Bitterskunk can be helped!) The crystals on the top and bottom of the staff glow-in-the-dark.
Again, like with the last Left 4 Dead 2 post, we need to remind people that this is an M-rated zombie survival game, and if that isn't your thing, then you might want to steer clear of this. But if you already enjoy playing this cooperative game with an engaging story and music/sound, then this mod is worth trying.
While we're on the topic of Left 4 Dead 2, there are some other L4D2 mods that might be of interest to Star Fox/Krystal fans. This mod replaces the "credits" music ("The Monsters Within") with the "Mission Complete" music from Star Fox 64 3D. This mod replaces the "running to the rescue vehicle" music ("Skin on Our Teeth") with the "Space Battleground" music from Star Fox: Assault.
If you want to explore additional Star Fox material in the Left 4 Dead 2 community workshop, here are some links you might like.

This is sort of old news, but in an article on Gamerant, Masahiro Sakurai talked about the development of Super Smash Bros. 4 and said that the final roster was finalized two years ago. All of those campaigns and petitions for certain characters to be in the game (including Krystal)? Unfortunately, they couldn't be used. Not because Sakurai doesn't care about fan requests, but because it takes so long to make a game. It takes a while to balance every single character and their interactions with each other. Because of this, the character lineup must be finalized a great deal in advance.
So Sakurai wants to tell you guys "no hard feelings". Maybe next time, or in DLC if they can test it properly.
