Star Fox 2 Developers Celebrate Release of the Upcoming SNES Classic Title
After 22 years, Star Fox 2 is finally releasing to the public and no one is happier about it than the team behind the game’s intense development. The game will be officially releasing to the public for those who will be picking up an SNES Classic edition. Although, the most surprising part of this gaming development may be the fact that even the developers at Argonaut didn’t know if this would become a reality.
The official announcement of the title’s upcoming release was revealed by Dylan Cuthbert, a developer on Star Fox 2’s creative team. Initially the statement came from a Tweet on June 27th where Cuthbert stated, “I’m still kind of in a reality distortion field – StarFox 2 is really coming out?”. Of course, that surprising Tweet was followed up with an exuberant addition by the developer, confirming that the team behind the game’s development is just as excited about its coming release as fans are:
