Star Fox DS gets new name

Nintendo's official Web site for the upcoming mascot-driven space shooter dubs new game Star Fox Command; release set for late August.

When Nintendo named the first DS installment of its 3D space-based shooter series as Star Fox DS earlier this month, it appeared the company was tapping into the same well of creativity that produced titles for Tetris DS, Super Mario 64 DS, and Mario Kart DS. Now it appears that the Star Fox DS moniker was only temporary, as Nintendo's Web site now lists the game as Star Fox Command.

Star Fox Command puts players through a branching set of missions in the familiar Arwing fighter. There's also multiplayer co-op and competitive game modes for up to four players on the Wi-Fi Connection, or eight players locally. Co-op mode will also allow a player designated as team leader to plot out a course through the level using the system's touch screen.

Star Fox Command is set for release August 28, according to the Web site. Nintendo reps were not immediately available to confirm the new name.

I hope they change the SFX of the phasers - they sound tacky and rubbish and would annoy the heck out of me!!

I think I was the first one at NSider to suggest a Star Fox game for the DS, back in March 2005. I'm glad Nintendo finally listened!

Coming into the article just to post "who cares" is one of the most moronic things I've seen done on GameSpot to date.

The game looks great and I want to see how well they can implement the touch screens controllers to fit Star Fox. The graphics (except for the explosions) looks amazing.
