In a move that maybe shouldn’t have been so surprising, it was revealed that Nintendo is collaborating with Ubisoft to bring Star Fox content to the previously mysterious game. Fox McCloud and the Arwing will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of Starlink: Battle for Atlas. In fact, a “starter pack” is in the works for Nintendo Switch that will bundle the game with some extra goodies. Details can be found below.
