Sandy Mccarthy | 12 June, 2018, 02:02

"We are excited to give players a deeper look at Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the first all-new property from Ubisoft Toronto", said the studio's creative director, Laurent Malville.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Turns out the answer was easy.

Ubisoft unveiled the release date for Starlink: Battle for Atlas at its recent keynote at E3 2018 - and broke half the internet with the announcement that it will feature an exclusive Star Fox crossover on Nintendo Switch - but how does its customisable toys-to-life concept actually work? Complete with their own toys.

Square Enix's E3 2018 showcase is short and sweet
It was a bite-sized 30-minute look at Square Enix's plans moving forward, with plenty for fans to get hyped over. Well, Square Enix just wrapped up a short and uneventful E3 press conference that really seemed to phone it in.

Ubisoft just announced a new game and toy-line, featuring the beloved Nintendo character, Fox McCloud.

Star Fox will be a playable character in the game Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch along with his trusty Arwing space ship, Ubisoft announced during its E3 conference Monday. Not everyone will get to experience the Star Fox collaboration however, as it'll only be available for the Nintendo Switch version of the game. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly. As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too. The company confirmed that Starlink: Battle for Atlas will launch on October 16, 2018.

Star Fox is crossing over into an Ubisoft game.
