With games like Skull and Bones and Assassin's Creed Odyssey on the horizon for Ubisoft, you'd be forgiven if you forgot about its upcoming toys-to-life game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
A year ago at E3, Ubisoft made a bold choice - just as Disney Infinity, Skylanders and every other toys-to-life game franchise was winding down, it announced a big, complex, comprehensive space adventure that relies on physical toys and collectables. More importantly, it turns out Star Fox characters and ships will be appearing in the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
Star Fox will be a playable character in the game Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch along with his trusty Arwing space ship, Ubisoft announced during its E3 conference Monday.
Lead a group of interstellar pilots as you build your own starship, explore the Atlas Star System, and battle the vile Grax and his Forgotten Legion.
