Star Fox 2 Developers Celebrate Game Release 20 Years Later

The Nintendo SNES Classic was announced earlier this week and Jason has posted up a list of the games that will be shipping on the mini-retro console. One of the games is Star Fox 2 - which was never released at the time and it's kind of odd that Nintendo chose to release the game now - 20 years later. If you're a Star Fox fan, you'll be thrilled, but I can't help but feel that it took and place of a better game that could have shipped instead.

Star Fox 2 never made it to the market due to its aging look and the anticipated release of the Nintendo 64 in the then not-too-distant future. Unfortunately, the game was completed in a time when the SNES had already been out on the market for many years and its competition was pushing far more polygons with the likes of the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn.
