E3 2018: Starlink: Battle for Atlas launches on October 16, Switch version has Star Fox content

Well heck. Just when you thought toys-to-life was dead, Ubisoft and Nintendo team up to bring it back.

Ubisoft announced during their E3 conference this morning that not only is Starlink: Battle for Atlas launching on October 16, but the Switch version will also feature Star Fox content. That’s right, if you play Starlink on Switch, you can play as Fox, and fly around in an Arwing all day long. The Switch retail edition even comes with an Arwing as the base model!

Given how… quiet things have been since Star Fox Zero launched on the Wii U to generally poor reception, it’s nice to see Nintendo teaming up with Ubisoft to give the furry space fox some love.

The Starter Pack (with Star Fox goodies) is available for preorder on Ubisoft’s online store right now for $119.95. We’ll post more details as they come.
