Star Fox Command shaken, not stirred

Nintendo mascot's next outing reportedly will support the DS rumble pack and come with 30 stages to blast through.

Star Fox Command, the Nintendo DS incarnation of the popular 3D space shooter, is due out in Japan in less than a month. In anticipation of release day, Famitsu.com has revealed a few more details about the game.

For instance, DS rumble pack owners will be able to shake up their in-flight experience with force feedback. Regarding length, the game will feature more than 30 stages set in a number of scenic areas, such as deserts, space, oceans, and flaming caves. Famitsu also confirmed that a number of pilots from the previous Star Fox games, each with their own quirks, will be back for the DS version.

Aspiring Arwing pilots can also get their multiplayer fix through wireless ad hoc games or play over Wi-Fi. Star Fox Command is set to launch in Japan on August 3 and will retail for 4,800 yen (about $41.50).

They really messed up Star Fox on the GC. They should never of chaged it. There are so many action/adventure games around & not that many old school 3D shooters. Good to see we will finally get our Star Fox fix after waiting so long.

Sweet having it support the rumble pack is like a homage to Starfox 64. Does anyone know if you can buy a stand alone rumble pack?

I liked SF adventures and have yet to get assault. My complaint with adventures was not enough flying the arwing. assault is one i want to get now that it is under $20. cant wait to play the DS ver.

how much do you people in the u.s.a. and Europe typically have to pay for ds games? In Canada Nintendogs is 29.99 at futureshop but games like advance wars and animal crossing are 49.99. Just wondering.

Yeesh, they reversed the order a while ago. I always switch it back to first to last though, hate the latest first way. Sneakz7 said: "If starfox command gets rid of the 3rd person shooter fine.. but get rid the on rail missions then its gonna be crap ( imaging doing sector Z from starfox 64 for all 30 missions)" The pictures I've seen of it are 3rd person, but they might still have the option to be first like SF64. As for those all range mode levels, I would hate having just that as well; DS is like the N64, so I would imagine they won't all be like that.

I still dont get why anyone hated starfox assult i thought it was the greatest starfox game to date the ability to get OUT of your ship and actually have a 3rd person shooter aspect was great and it never even bothered me ( i dont know why gamespot is complaning about the controls....well maybe for the landmaster) and the air battles were greeeeat seriously it had the best multiplayer too and the had a good abount of on rail missions which i think was the best part about starfox. If starfox command gets rid of the 3rd person shooter fine.. but get rid the on rail missions then its gonna be crap ( imaging doing sector Z from starfox 64 for all 30 missions)

this better be like star fox 64 but better... Starfox for gamecube was ok but i'd rather fly, than run around talking to natives,putting up with a particular annoying dinosaur, gathering items and shooting

um, kids, it'll be absolutely no more than $35 in the US. money translates differently throughout the world, and that's just to give comparison, not to even hint on what our price will be. rolls eyes
