Starlink: Battle For Atlas is a new IP from Ubisoft with a very galactic feel, which plays an important role for its special guest star.
Cinematically, the game looks very pretty. It’ll be launching for PS4, Xbox One and Switch on October 16th this year. You play as a group of galactic pilots who are battling against an evil force of robots, known as the Fallen Legion. It looks like you’ll be travelling to different planets and meeting a wide variety of creatures whilst playing.
One of the unique features about Starlink: Battle for Atlas is the opportunity to build your own starship in real life and then transport it into the game, using NFC technology you’ll be able to customise and create different ship formations for different pilots and change their weapons available. Check out the video below to get an idea on how it’ll work on the Switch:
Now the big surprise for this game was the inclusion of one very special Nintendo mascot, a certain fox who goes by the surname…McCloud!
That’s right, Fox McCloud will be playable in Starlink: Battle for Atlas exclusively for Nintendo Switch. This one was certainly something nobody saw coming, after they’d shown the trailer they also gifted Shigeru Miyamoto with a model of Fox and his Arwing and it looked amazing.
