Nintendo had a surprise in store for the Ubisoft E3 press conference as Fox McCloud flew in for a cameo in Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
The Star Fox protagonist will be a playable character, exclusive to the Nintendo Switch release on October 16. Yves Guillemot also handed Shigeru Miyamoto a model Arwing on stage, perhaps hinting that Starlink's real toys resulting in in-game loadouts could extend to the legendary craft.

More details of the game's story were also shown in a further trailer, but let's face it, everyone's here for the Fox in the cockpit.
