Epic NINTENDO GAMECUBE Launch Title Charts the Continuing Exploits of Fox McCloud
Welcome to Dinosaur Planet, once a primordial paradise, now a world torn apart by an evil dinosaur named General Scales. Sections of the planet have been ripped from the surface and flung into low orbit. The General and his legions of mutated dinosaurs are running wild.
Enter Fox McCloud. As the planet's only hope, he finds himself facing a brand new challenge in Star Fox® Adventures: Dinosaur Planet, a joint development from the award-winning game creators at Rare and Nintendo exclusively for NINTENDO GAMECUBE.
What begins with Fox's discovery of a magical staff soon unfolds into an epic adventure spanning the length and breadth of this shattered world. Players will battle enemies, fly Arwing missions, ride on the backs of enormous dinosaurs, and team up with a new sidekick, Prince Tricky.
Fans of the Star Fox series will see a new side to their favorite hero as Fox McCloud finally leaves his Arwing to take on enemies hand to hand.
See it all in detail with ground-breaking graphics made possible by the technology of NINTENDO GAMECUBE, which allows players to become immersed in atmospheric environments and interact with incredibly detailed dinosaurs in a lush prehistoric world teeming with life.
By fully utilizing the new NINTENDO GAMECUBE controller, the magical staff with its many combat moves and transformations becomes the ultimate weapon, taking players to a new dimension of gameplay.
"Bringing dinosaurs to life in a lush world is a definite challenge, but the power of NINTENDO GAMECUBE makes it happen in this exciting game," says Peter Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America Inc. "The outstanding story and incredible visuals make this title an adventure for all ages."
Star Fox Adventures: Dinosaur Planet picks up the action eight years after Fox McCloud, the best pilot in the Lylat System, defeated Andross. His team has since been disbanded - Falco is pursuing a solo career; Slippy's working in research and development; and Peppy has retreated to the calmer life of mission support. Ultimately it is Fox alone who must address the plight of Dinosaur Planet.
This one-player game will be released in November 2001.
