Star Fox 64 3D hits stores this week

Nintendo 3DS owners have been reminded that Star Fox 3D is winging its way into UK stores this week.

The new handheld remake of the classic Nintendo 64 title - released in Europe as Lylat Wars - sees Fox McCloud and his team of anthropomorphic hotshot pilots take to the skies to liberate the Lylat System from the clutches of the evil Andross.

For its Nintendo 3DS debut, the acclaimed on-rails space shooter has received a complete visual overhaul, boasting stunning graphics and 3D effects, as well as a new gyroscope-based control option.

It also introduces a refurbished multiplayer mode that up to four players can enjoy using only one game card, allowing them to compete in fast-paced aerial dogfights.

This mode also utilises the Nintendo 3DS' inner camera, meaning players will be able to see the faces and reactions of their competitors as they blast them out of the sky.

Star Fox 64 3D is the first of a number of big-name 3DS games due to hit stores before the end of 2011, with Super Mario 3D and Mario Kart 7 also coming soon.
