Starting Sept. 9, Nintendo 3DS owners can take to the skies as Fox McCloud and his band of flying aces in the Star Fox 64 3D game as they soar through multiple worlds to restore order. Sept. 9 also marks the debut of the new Flame Red version of the Nintendo 3DS system, which is available at a suggested retail price of $169.99.
In addition to the full original game, Star Fox 64 3D also includes a new multiplayer mode in which up to four players can compete in an aerial dogfight to see which of them is master of the skies. Up to four Nintendo 3DS owners can compete, even if only one player has a Game Card. This mode also makes use of the Nintendo 3DS inner camera: With this optional feature, as fighters zip across the screen, player’s faces are displayed along with their ships. When one player triumphs, his or her image receives a victory crown. At the same time, the winner can relish in the other players’ images of defeat.
