ReiTuki likes to create custom mods for Second Life by patching together existing mods with a little custom work here and there. In this Krystal mod, the head was made custom, and combined with existing body and face mods to create one of the nicest Second Life Krystal mods I've ever seen, albeit a stylistic interpretation of her various facial features and body shape. Interesting staff and clothing too.
It certainly helps that ReiTuki is very good at taking photos of these creations. Have a look at ReiTuki's Flickr Gallery for more examples.
RetartedMimikyu64 posted a video on YouTube showing off his Star Fox character mods for Super Mario 64. You can play as Fox, Falco, Wolf, and even Krystal. The Krystal model is using our very own Krystal 64 Rig. Downloads for the mods are in the video description.
Thanks to CommanderD for the heads up.
I don't know how I missed it, but TerminalMontage has released another amazing animation featuring our favorite version of Fox McCloud: Melee, No Items. And hey, a certain special someone shows up too. :)
Surprisingly, we actually did get some Star Fox news in today's Nintendo Direct. The original SNES Star Fox is coming to the Nintendo Online service, free with paid membership, on Thursday, September 5th, 2019. A new exclusive is Stunt Race FX, which has never released outside its original SNES launch. They promised more games in the future, so seeing Star Fox 2 show up here eventually is probable, given that they released it for the SNES Mini.
In Smash news, Sakurai announced to our surprise that he would continue making more DLC fighters even after the 5th Fighter Pass character is released. From the sound of it, the team intends to focus on non-Nintendo series when picking newcomers, but hope always remains. Nintendo (and Sakurai) can do whatever they wish, and if fans want Krystal, we might just get her! The ride never ends, the hope never dies!
It's that time again, folks. Time to see what's next from Nintendo. I don't expect any Star Fox news, except maybe an announcement that the Star Fox DLC for Starlink will be made free to download, now that Starlink's development is officially shut down (sad face). Other than that, they will probably announce the launch date for the Banjo Kazooie DLC in Smash and one or two other surprises. There are plenty of speculations and rumors, if you're into that sort of thing.
You can watch the presentation above or on Twitch. We will be watching closely. Just a couple hours to go.
A new Krystal cosplayer has appeared. Hikaru Cosplay made very quick work of her project, concept in February 2019 to completed costume in August 2019, just six months! She will be making her first public appearance at A Video Game Con NJ on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 at her booth. That's this weekend, folks! Hopefully we'll get to see some footage and photos from that event. For the actual convention, she plans to add more makeup and some new fingernails to complete the look.
Hikaru says that Krystal was a very important character to her in her childhood, with lots of memories from playing Star Fox Adventures. Krystal was her role model in a way. She only worries that people won't recognize the character at the convention. Somehow, I don't think she'll have trouble.
The tail and ears were made by CuteTailStudio on Etsy, and the wig was made by Epic Cosplay Wigs. Hikaru made the bodysuit herself from scratch. Check out the WIP posts below.
I meant to post about this earlier, but Reddit user Tylerort93 took advantage of the Starlink ship modularity system to create an Arwing-wing-wing. Three wings per wing, or "Godwing" as he calls it. His monstrosity beautiful creation even got featured by the official Starlink Twitter.
The game actually handles this. The Starlink developers said it would, but to see it in action, it's really incredible.
A long and detailed review of the the events leading up to the launch of Star Fox Adventures, an overview of the pros and cons of the game, and some defense against those who claim it to be a tragedy to the Star Fox franchise. I agree with most of his points, though some of his particulars are slightly off. Apparently he didn't know how Saurian worked until after the video was posted because his game copy didn't come with an instruction booklet, for example.
After his Krystal vs Wolf Animation in 2017, animator TheIronGauntlet is working on a new Krystal animation, and it's almost done! This one is going to be about Krystal as an Arwing pilot. He's posted a video preview of the audio from the animation as a sneak peek, which you can see above. On his Twitter, he's posted sneak peeks of Krystal and the Arwing from the animation.
It took a little bit to prepare, but the public release of the Krystal Joins the Fight Artbook is finally ready! You can download and print your own copy right now, today! Most of the files included are slightly higher resolution than the original print. The file names have been organized for your convenience. One additional piece that didn't make it into the original version, as well as a credits page, are included in the download.
