News:: Whatever happened to Star Fox 2?

If you've just woken up from a coma, you may not have heard that the SNES Classic is coming this September. It's loaded with 21 classic Super Nintendo titles, from A Link to the Past to Yoshi's Island. One game on that list is the biggest and most surprising news though: After over 20 years, the unreleased SNES title Star Fox 2 will finally make its debut on the SNES Classic.

Whatever happened to that game though? Star Fox 2 was finished after all, so why didn't it ever see a retail release? It's a question on a lot of people's minds with the announcement of its official release. Star Fox 2 was an ambitious project, but it would be thrown out, and we wouldn't see Fox, Slippy, or Falco again until Star Fox 64 – a favorite of the era for a lot of gamers.
