Starfox 2 Manual Has Been Published On Nintendo Japan Website


With only a few weeks to go before the launch of the SNES Classic Edition, Nintendo have uploaded the Instruction Manual to the never before released StarFox 2 on their Japanese website. The Manual is fortunately in english so there will be no need for translating. Along with the manual, some artwork for the game was also released including these two images here which includes some early concept art for Team StarWolf.

The manual comes with an opening story introduction like most Instruction Manuals from way back then. Here is how the story of StarFox 2 begins:

The battle for the galaxy is over. The evil emperor Andross’s plans to seize control of the once-great Lylat system have been thwarted by the army of Corneria – thanks in no small part to the brave deeds of elite fighter squadron Star Fox. Their mission accomplished, Fox McCloud and his team depart once more for the deep expanses of space, sent off by the cheers and adoration of Corneria’s grateful inhabitants.

However…

Andross has survived. Consumed with desire for revenge, he plots an invasion even more terrible than the last. The people of Lylat cannot know it, but the peace they are enjoying is doomed to be short-lived. And sure enough, one fateful day, the forces of Andross attack once again.

Taken completely by surprise, the planets of the Lylat system fall one by one to Andross’s advancing army. Corneria, at the hub of the galaxy, now lies exposed and within the clutches of the maniacal emperor!

“We’ve lost every outpost. The way things are going, we may struggle to hold Corneria…”

Musing on the grave state of affairs, General Pepper of the Cornerian army knows there is one last resort.
“Get me Star Fox! The galaxy needs their help!”

Star Fox is back. With upgraded Arwing fighters and two new members drafted from the Cornerian army, they’re tougher and meaner than ever before. This time, they will put a stop to Andross…for good.

If you would like to check out the full manual, you can find it here. Design documents were also published on the website and can be downloaded in PDF form here, along with design documents for the Arwing as well.

SNES Classic Mini To Come This Christmas Says Eurogamer’s Sources


Eurogamer have stated that their sources close to Nintendo have confirmed that the Big N will follow up the NES Classic Mini with a micro version of the original NES’ successor, the Super Nintendo. The SNES Classic Mini is currently scheduled for release over the Holiday Season of this year and development is well underway according to sources.

After the news of the NES Classic Mini being discontinued last week, it would make sense that the real reason behind it was for Nintendo to put focus on the production of the SNES Classic even though the NES Classic Mini is still quite a popular and sought out item. The success of the NES Classic Mini last year sold millions of units and it likely that Nintendo hopes a repeat success this year by releasing the SNES Mini in time for Christmas.

There are a number of ways that Nintendo can secure success, providing a larger library of games on the Plug & Play system will definitely help sales along with the option to play SNES Carts or more via even via Virtual Console by transferring from the Wii, Wii U or 3DS. Also, if last year’s sales are anything to go by, having more units available will definitely increase the profit margin.

We really hope this turns out to be true. It will be a great novelty item to follow up the NES Classic Mini and build up a collection of Nintendo Micro Consoles. What games would you like to see come to the SNES Classic Mini? Obviously Super Mario World, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past & Super Metroid are a given but what other titles do you think should come to it? Let us know in the comments below.
