Starlink: Battle for Atlas
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. It was released worldwide on October 16, 2018 for multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. The basis of the game is to build ships and travel between seven different planets to explore and many enemies to fight. The Nintendo Switch version in particular includes additional, exclusive content related to the Star Fox series that is heavily integrated into the game's main campaign.
An evil robot force called the Forgotten Legion is invading the Atlas star system. Several heroes answered the call for help, including Fox McCloud and the Star Fox team. The team came to the Atlas star system in pursuit of Wolf O'Donnell and the rest of Star Wolf. Star Fox soon meets up with the Starlink initiative and joins them to help complete both of their missions.
An update for the game, which will release in April of 2019, gives a new story where the Star Fox team receives a call from Star Wolf. The update will also allow players to play as Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare, and Slippy Toad in both this new story and during regular missions.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas revolves around ship building. While exploring, the player will come across ship parts they can attach to their main ship or build a new ship with. The parts will boost various aspects of a ship depending on what it is and where it is placed, including offense, defense, and agility. Each ship comes equipped with lasers to use for combat, which can also be upgraded, and each pilot has a ship of their own. Fox McCloud's main ship is the Arwing, built for efficiency and durability.
There are also game packs that come with physical ships and ship parts that can be scanned into the game. Ship parts can be swapped out at any time, allowing players to change strategies mid-battle. The pack released for the Nintendo Switch comes with various Star Fox accessories. The Nintendo Switch Exclusive Starter Pack includes:
- Starlink: Battle for Atlas
- Joycon Mount
- Arwing Starship
