Rogue One: A Star Wars Story writer wants to pen a Star Fox animated movie

Please let this happen somehow...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was very highly regarded by Star Wars fans, giving writer Gary Whitta quite a following. Many are eager to see what Whitta does next, and if he has things his way, he'll be helming a Star Fox animated feature.

God of War Art Director Raf Grassetti has been paying tribute to the Star Fox series lately with multiple pieces of art featuring the Star Fox Team. Those tributes caught the eye of Whitta, who took to Twitter to state that he wants to write the animated movie based on those depictions.

Obviously Grassetti is on board with the idea. Now all that needs to happen is approval from Nintendo...which sadly will likely never happen. Oh well, at least there's some big-name interest out there!

Never give up!

God of War art director Raf Grassetti is back into the swing of things with his Smash Bros. Ultimate tribute series. We've already had Fox, Slippy, and Falco, and today we get the wise Peppy Hare. Peppy's kind nature really comes through in this pic, doesn't it?

Give'm the slip

As we shared yesterday, God of War art director Raf Grassetti is finally getting back to his Smash Bros. Ultimate tribute series. He started off with Fox McCloud yesterday, and for the next few features, he'll be focusing on Team Star Fox in general. Slippy gets the special treatment today, and I don't think he's ever looked better!

We need you, Star Fox!

Last year, God of War art director Raf Grassetti started doing tribute pieces for the roster of Smash Bros. Ultimate. He made a considerable dent in the lineup, but other work got in the way, and Grassetti had to pause his series. Now with 2020 underway, Grassetti is able to return to the tributes, and he kicks things off with Fox McCloud himself.

Grassetti has said that he's going to do the full Star Fox team, and is looking for input on which character he should tackle next. Hit him up on the Instagram comments above and let him know!

Walmart offering a special 'Family Bundle' of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Two great games in one package

Here's a unique bundle that you'll only find at Walmart. Ubisoft has combined Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Starlink: Battle for Atlas into one package for Walmart customers, and it appears to be in stores now. Unfortunately, we don't have word on what the package costs, but hopefully it's both titles for the price of a single game.

Ubisoft says they expected more from Starlink: Battle for Atlas, but they've gained experience from working on the title

Gone, but not forgotten

Starlink: Battle for Atlas may have gotten fairly good reviews, but it didn't find a home with audiences around the world. The Switch version may have been the best-seller overall, but it still wasn't enough to move the needle for Ubisoft. In an interview with MCVUK, Ubisoft’s EMEA executive director Alain Corre talks about what the company has taken away from the experience.

“I think we gain a lot of experience working on this franchise, also for the family. And it helps us shape plans for family games that are coming for us. We always capitalise on everything we have done in the past. We have a lot of fans still playing Starlink and that are happy playing Starlink, and that’s what’s most important for us. We were expecting more out of Starlink but it’s a step in our creation process and, again, all the experience we have garnered out of creating and marketing this game, we are very rich in this experience to market, and well placed to create better products for this type of consumer in the future.”

Marvel Team-Up comic features a nod to StarFox

Don't get too cocky

The latest issue of the Marvel Team-Up comic featuring Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel has a snippet where the two are talking about StarFox. Captain Marvel is the one who brings up StarFox, and she's actually talking about Marvel's StarFox, who was also known as Eros of Titan. Ms. Marvel doesn't know who Eros is, so for her, the only StarFox that makes sense to her is Fox McCloud and his team! Nice to see this little nod thrown in, as I know I thought about it the first time I found out who StarFox was!
