[AU] Fox McCloud is Back in a Re-mastered Nintendo Classic

Nintendo announces that Star Fox 64 3D will be available exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on 15 September 2011.

Star Fox 64 3D invites players to take on the role of legendary Fox McCloud as they lead a fearless squadron of fighters in fierce aerial combat to battle the evil forces of Andross and save the galaxy from destruction. The rich 3D visuals provide a remarkable sense of depth, distance and position as players dodge meteors and blast enemy fighters out of the sky.

A complete graphical update brings a Nintendo classic into the era of portable 3D fun. The game makes effective use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s dual screens: The top screen features 3D aerial combat, while the bottom screen displays characters and dialogue.

A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce aerial combat via a local wireless connection (using four systems and one game card via DS Download Play). The multiplayer mode also includes new power-ups and special weapons. Players can use the Nintendo 3DS system’s inner camera to display a live video feed of competitors' faces as they battle, bringing a new level of fun and personalisation to the multiplayer experience.

Poor Australian gamers, paying the equivalent of US$74 for the game. No way would I consider paying that much for any game, console or handheld.

I don't buy games anymore.  I rent them.  I don't play them often enough to justify buying them.  Especially with a price tag of usually over $80.

I don't blame you, 3DS games are $40 here and they are charging $74 for them there. I would probably rent too (or import all of my games since even with the import fee it would still be cheaper than buying locally).

I did that for a while too until my free time went down to where I couldn't turn them around fast enough.
