Starlink: Battle for Atlas - StarFox character renders

I'm really curious about this. How many of you planned to skip over Starlink: Battle for Atlas completely, but changed your mind when the StarFox content was revealed? I would imagine at least a handful of StarFox fans did an about-face when Ubisoft announced this collaboration.

Ubisoft says questions of Starlink: Battle for Atlas' StarFox content being canon should be directed at Nintendo

The StarFox team is popping up in Starlink: Battle for Atlas with an adventure and missions all to themselves. The content certainly looks like a blast, but is it canon? When a Ubisoft rep was asked about the nature of the content, he said any discussions about canon should be aimed at Nintendo. In other words, Ubisoft isn't ready to say that the content here is canon for the StarFox franchise, and Nintendo hasn't uttered a word on the topic.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield tests Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Well here's a unique perspective on Starlink: Battle for Atlas! In the video above, Astronaut Chris Hadfield checks out the game and offers up some thoughts on the experience.

"As astronauts we live in video-games because simulators allow us to get ready for being on a space ship. A game like Starlink becomes compelling so you can actually imagine yourself doing these things... The whole purpose of these toys, really, is to open the imagination. If it's just a toy on a shelf that's one thing but if you can reconfigure it to your own liking, suddenly you're not just an observer. You're part of what's happening. Interacting with a game is like someone kicking a door open that you never thought you could walk through. To allow a young person to imagine a world that doesn't exist yet and see themselves as part of that change.”
