Why Did Nintendo Cancel Star Fox 2?

Nintendo hyped up Star Fox 2 and the leaked beta shows the game was near completion. Actually, Dylan Cuthbert, developer and now founder of Q Games, says it was “fully completed.” So, why didn’t it come out?

Cuthbert sheds some light on the situation.

Quote:
Star Fox 2 was fully completed. I was lead programmer and whilst Giles made Stunt Race FX, myself and the rest of the original Star Fox team (i.e.. Nintendo’s artists and designers) expanded Star Fox into a full 3d shooting game. We used state-of-the-art technology such as arbitrary plane clipping (which has only been seen recently in such games as Crash Bandicoot 2 & 3) to create some rather spectacular effects. (for the time)

The reason for non-release was the then impending Nintendo 64, which of course was intended to be released a lot sooner than it actually was. Miyamoto-san decided he wanted to have a clean break between 3D games on the SNES and 3D games on the new superior 64 bit system. In retrospect, he could have released Star Fox 2 and there would have been over a year and a half before the N64 came out. But hindsight is always 20/20.

Star Fox 64 incorporated a lot of the newer ideas we created in Star Fox 2 but it didn’t, in my view, take the genre a full step forward. Star Fox 2 really was a different direction of gameplay.
This quote was captured from an excellent Star Fox 2 retrospective written by SNES Central, which archived it from Emulatorium. Check out the article for a more detailed history of the game and analysis on the various prototypes.

That's a good article. I always wondered what happened with SF2.

I don't know. Same thing with Sonic X-treme, it was almost completely finished, but never released. Now Mario galaxy is ripping its engine off.

Starfox 2 was pretty awesome. It's a bum deal it never cam out. God bless the internet, allowing us to play unreleased games like it.

The two extra pilots have yet to make an appearance in the series. I don't know what happened to them, if Star Wolf got a mulligan so should they.

Re: Why Did Nintendo Cancel Star Fox 2?

Wasent it because Nintendo wanted the 64 to be known for 3-D gamming, and starfox 2 was kinda 3-D'ish. They didnt want the supernintendo to take attention away from the 64. I remember reading this in a GameInformer.
