When it comes to classic video games, Nintendo is like Motown, having churned out hit after hit at an impressive clip. Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong… We could rattle on an impressive of list of iconic in-house titles from the video game giant until the end of this article. But today we’re going to focus on one of the company’s most popular original offerings for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Star Fox. With the announcement that the long-canceled Star Fox 2 will finally be available this September via the company’s SNES Classic, we just had to bust out the Star Fox tattoos.
The original game was a smash hit and a sequel was quickly planned, written, and coded. However, due to the impending release of the Nintendo 64, the company decided at the last minute to scrap the game and redo it on the new system to take advantage of advanced hardware features. The result, Star Fox 64, was nothing short of a masterpiece.
These Star Fox tattoos make us even more excited to finally play Star Fox 2. And hey, even if it totally sucks it’ll still be better than the Gamecube’s Star Fox Adventures, right?
