Star Fox is celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Rail Shooter has been a staple of every Smash Bros. game. Star Fox was first released in Japan on the Super Famicom in February 1993, following North America in March, and finally it landed in Europe in June.
Dylan Cuthbert, the CEO of Q-Game, shared a delightfully fruity cake with the Star Fox crew on this Twitter account to commemorate Star Fox’s 30th anniversary:
However, Nintendo didn’t do justice to the title and focused on other titles such as Pokemon and Mario and gradually, the game was forgotten. Nonetheless, diehard fans still remember the game upto this very day.
Although Nintendo has not given much thought to the franchise, Takaya Imamura, the former Nintendo artist, the designer of the iconic Fox McCloud, and a few other original game characters is still loyal to the game.
Takaya Imamura tweeted a new illustration to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Star Fox and said:
However, instead of appreciation, both Imamura and Cuthbert were faced with a reception of angry fans. Fans were furious that the game didn’t see any new content coming to the game. In tweets, the fans bashed Nintendo for neglecting the series.
In particular, one of the angry fans said:
Cool. Why don’t you celebrate the 30th anniversary with a new game?
Following suit, other gamers also joined in on the thread and criticized Nintendo one of the fans mocked saying
The only Star Fox mention for 2023
And the list goes on! Maybe, this is the queue for Nintendo to correct this mistake and revive Star Fox. Though fans don’t expect much from the franchise at this point, but who knows what the future holds!
