Before I had a chance to post the below story, IGN took down the video and 404'd their own website's article about the interview. What's going on? Did the devs say too much? Did IGN release something early by accident?
The post below is what was originally going to be posted today.
In a developer interview with IGN, the Starlink team at Ubisoft showed off the other classic members of the Star Fox team: Peppy Hare, Slippy Toad, and Falco Lombardi. They gave no indication that those characters will be playable, only saying that the player could use Fox as a playable character. There are still four open slots for unrevealed pilots on the game's homepage and mentioned in the video, so any of these characters (and more) could still be playable. We also hold out hope that the lovely blue vixen will join the fight.
Also shown was that the other Star Fox pilots fly around with you in space and do a full-3D, go-anywhere dogfight above a planet. This is what the space battles will be like, which differ from the flight/hover gameplay on the ground.
