StarFox 3D release date nailed

Nintendo sets the day you'll take home 3DS' second N64 remake

Nintendo has confirmed that Star Fox 64 3D will be making its way to shops on September 11 in US.

That's according to a new software release schedule from Nintendo last week, which also re-affirms the new Super Mario game for 3DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising and Mario Kart all for a 'holiday' (late 2011) release.


Star Fox 64 3D is a remake of the N64 classic, with improved visuals, optional motion controls and added multiplayer features (including a cool in-game live video feed of players' faces).

It will be the second major N64 makeover following Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which launches this month and looks fantastic.
