More than just a straight port of the original, Star Fox 64 3D adds a number of features, including the ability to control the game's Arwing spacecraft using the 3DS's tilt-sensitive gyroscopic feature. The game also includes rerecorded voice work, and new power-ups for the game's multiplayer mode.

The game should also kick off a parade of first-party titles for the 3DS that should stretch through the end of the year. The recently announced Pokemon Rumble Blast will follow on October 24, and Nintendo has previously confirmed that Super Mario, Mario Kart, and Kid Icarus: Uprising will all arrive in 2011.
