At E3 today, Ubisoft revealed that Star Fox will be a pilot in its upcoming spaceship game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. This game combines the real and the virtual world with toy-like attachments that help you reconfigure your ship.

This year two Nintendo crossovers were announced at Ubisoft's show, a Mario + Rabbids expansion, Donkey Kong Adventure, featuring Donkey Kong, and the Star Fox/Starlink crossover.

The game will include the Arwings from Star Fox, according to Ubisoft's E3 2018 presentation. With Ubisoft partnering with Nintendo for games, it was able to get Star Fox himself added to the fray, which is fantastic.

Nintendo Switch users will be glad to see the legendary Starfox back in action, in what seems like a natural fit. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be available October 16 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Star Fox creator Shigeru Miyamoto himself came on stage to accept a prototype of the Arwing toy.

"We are excited to give players a deeper look at Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the first all-new property from Ubisoft Toronto", said the studio's creative director, Laurent Malville. Each pilot has different skills to gain an advantage in battle.
