Star Fox 2 – Wikipedia

Although Star Fox 2 was complete, Nintendo cancelled the 1996 release due to the impending launch of the Nintendo 64, the desire to use the most advanced system available for a new Star Fox game, and competition changing expectations of 3D games. Though it was unreleased, various prototype ROM images have leaked online.

NOTES

Recently I received my SNES Classic!

Totally stoked to play the never released Star Fox 2

Oh Look at this shit. I have to complete Stage 1 of Starfox 1 to unlock Star Fox 2. There better be a damn good reason.

Memories of StarFox 1. It was all at once…amazing and hard to look at. All those polygons! I preferred the wireframe of look of Star Wars Arcade Game (1983) Plus it didn’t have all this gibberish…you had a real language.

But I have to admit. I really dug the music and sound effects…and ok…if I had to admit. I would say I love giant girder carrying robots.

and my wingmen were pretty fun to watch…Ribbit. I’ve been hit!!

and right in the middle of all the nerble nerble talk was an “incoming enemy”

But man, the anti alias was so bad.

Gawd I hate the first boss on the planet. It makes you realize just how hard it is to tell where your pew pews are going and god forbid you wanted to count how many times you actually hit the target before the shape ship started losing shapes.

Damn photon torpedoes.

Do a barrel roll!

The fail music kills your soul.

Slippy, Falco or Peppy?

Got so caught up in StarFox 1 I didn’t quit until after I was destroyed on Stage 2.

FINALLY! Now I get to play StarFox 2

Loot Box style! Open my Star Farx gift nintenderp!

Polygon Space Dragon!!

We got new characters! A puppy! and a lady fox!

Oh…what’s this! Instead of mission lines I have some kind of map..a real time map?

Ohh…an overall gameplan!   Real time dangers I have to attack on based on proximity and threat…oh geez. This is going to take strategy! But I’m only a space fox!

Andross is back. The Fiend!

We got a couple of planets they are taking.

Got to keep the baddies off Cornelies!

Miyu (fox? lynx)  and Fay (white dog )

Dual barrel ship. We each get our own tube!

Oh shit. I lost Star Fox right away.

Great…now I can quit back or keep on playing as Peppy the Frog. (My WingMan)

Dem rockets is fast

Why did I choose HARD!

Dem rockets is phallical shaped

Oh…my favorite is attacking the battleships!

While I am doing that. The Satellite is overrun. So it’s a never ending process of recapturing shit.

Time to destroy this battleship from the inside…like a proper ship does.

Oh look. I turn into a mech! Side Walk. Side Walk. Side Walk.

That actually wasn’t that hard.

Either I got better as Peppy or playing as a Wingman is easier.

Gah! 25% damage to the planet!

This is kind of hard. Kind of not so hard.

I like it. I have already forgotten all about StarFox 1.

Too bad the N64 came along and destroyed the chances for this game.

So time doesn’t stop when you enter a match but it does slow down for the greater game…on the map.

General Pepper is even spicier in the sequel. I don’t know if that is really true…but it’s a great byline.

dang Star Wolf mercenary team..Traitors!

It’s Peppy Hare.

Legacy[edit]
According to Cuthbert, some programming elements made for the game, such as the camera programs, were reused for the development of Super Mario 64.[23] Miyamoto estimated that 30% of Star Fox 64 came from Star Fox 2, citing ideas such as the all-range mode, multiplayer mode, and Star Wolf scenarios.[24] Several concepts were reused in Star Fox Command, including the map screen and multiple playable characters with their own fighters and statistics.[16] Some of its other gameplay mechanics, such as the walker mode for the Arwings, are used in Star Fox Zero (2016).
