Starlink: Battle for Atlas is getting some special Star Fox content that Ubisoft revealed in a new trailer shared during its E3 presentation.

The game itself allows you to customise your toy ship which will be reflected in-game, as you explore exotic alien worlds and engage in space battles. It will launch on October 16, 2018.

Star Fox is coming to Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas

The game was originally shown off at Ubisoft's conference past year alongside other titles that are set to be revealed over the next few months, including the upcoming Donkey Kong DLC expansion for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

With the exception of the Star Fox-related items, the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the Starter Pack will come with the same items. Starlink's success will probably hinge on whether the game is more than just an elaborate gimmick. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guilemot called the inclusion of Star Fox a "dream", and Star Fox creator Shigeru Miyamoto joined Guillemot on stage to help announce the tie-in.

Alongside the announcements mentioned above, Ubisoft released a new trailer for the game featuring the Star Fox for the Switch. "These are devastating abilities that you can use to turn the tide of a battle".

When we first saw footage for Starlink: Battle for Atlas, we were immediately intrigued.

The Nintendo tie-in is only available in the Nintendo Switch version of the game, but boy, this gives us an excuse to get very excited about a plastic toy that attaches to our Joy-Con controllers.
