Star Fox: Farewell, Beloved Falco
Star Fox: Farewell, Beloved Falco is a manga created by Nintendo, and part of the Star Fox series. The manga chronicles the events between Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Adventures. The manga was only released in Japan and was bundled with Adventures. Its main purpose is to describe the backstory as to why Falco left the Star Fox team. It also introduces a new character, Captain Shears.
In the beginning, Katt Monroe sends out an S.O.S signal when being attacked by Goras on Titania. Upon the team's arrival, Falco is re-introduced to Katt's old rag-tag team of roughnecks, who suspect that Captain Shears is part of a plot to resurrect Andross. Fox doesn't believe them, which ends up in a sparring match between him and Falco, thus adding more emphasis into Falco's intentions of leaving Star Fox. Eventually, it is revealed to Star Fox that Shears is indeed evil, and Fox storms in to stop the resurrection plan once and for all.
