IGN Coverup! Falco, Slippy, and Peppy Shown in Starlink
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.
I had a feeling that this was gping to happen that they would somehow take it down this early. Lucky for me I managed to download the entire video of the showcase for it so I am good there. Anyway as for Slippy, Peppy and Falco being in Starlink for the story as well, I have a feeling that those 4 missing slots in the Starlink website may end up being for those three along with pne more that we don’t know who could it be which means that there is a chance that they can end up being playable along with the human characters from the Starlink initiative. Now I am even more excited for this game.
If what you say about no indication about Peppy Falco and Slippy being playable, what would the other 4 spots be for? I can bet one of those spots would be for Wolf, considering that there’s a line that says Star Fox hunts down for Wolf O’Donnell. It maybe likely Wolf is in one of those 4 spots. And I’m still hoping for some sort of Krystal news as at least maybe DLC, considering this looks like after Star Fox 64 / Zero in terms of Fox’s voice and looks.
