Starlink is Getting Star Fox Content Exclusively on Switch

With games like Skull and Bones and Assassin's Creed Odyssey on the horizon for Ubisoft, you'd be forgiven if you forgot about its upcoming toys-to-life game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

Turns out the answer was easy.

The release date for Ubisoft's Starlink Battle for Atlas has been announced during the publisher's E3 2018 press conference alongside the announcement that Star Fox is coming to the Switch version. Complete with their own toys. There's no word if this will be bundled with some copies of the game, or if it will be required to access the Star Fox content, but it sure was a pretty looking model.

Since " Game of Thrones " ends with its eighth season next year, we wouldn't see the prequel, if ordered to series, until at least 2020.

If you're not familiar with how that works, it's basically modular toy that attaches to the player's controller. As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too.

Whether or not it can find success where other toys-to-life games have failed remains to be seen, but we're guessing spaceships and Star Fox will definitely give it a fighting chance. The new game will be available October 16 for Nintendo Switch, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, although the Star Fox crossover will be exclusively available for Nintendo Switch players.
