Starlink, Ubisoft's toys-to-life game about flying around in cool space ships, is launching on October 26th worldwide, on all platforms, but Nintendo Switch players are getting a special surprise. You can check out some new footage in the Star Fox announcement trailer embedded above.

The inclusion of Star Fox as a character in the Switch version shows that the relationship between Nintendo Ubisoft, which came together in last year's Mario + Rabbids, is still going strong.

We finally got some more information about Starlink: Battle for Atlas during Ubisoft's E3 2018 Press Conference including a release date and some exciting news about an exclusive add-on character.

So there's a little insight into Starlink: Battle for Atlus' toys-to-life setup?

If you're not familiar with how that works, it's basically modular toy that attaches to the player's controller. First, let's look at the E3 2018 gameplay trailer. Sorry Xbox One and PS4 owners, but Fox McCloud will (obviously) be a Nintendo Switch exclusive. The new game will be available October 16 for Nintendo Switch, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, although the Star Fox crossover will be exclusively available for Nintendo Switch players.

Starlink Battle for Atlas was officially announced during E3 2017.
