In an interesting tidbit of news this morning, NintendoLife posted a teaser of an upcoming interview with Q-Games head Dylan Cuthbert, formerly of Argonaut Software that was responsible for the development of the first Star Fox game as well as it's near-complete sequel on the SNES, which never saw the light of day (outside of put together ROMs online). In the interview, Cuthbert says that he actually played the game during development of Star Fox Command for the DS, but digital release seems unlikely due to legal issues stemming from the dissolution of Argonaut Software. But it is interesting to know that a fully complete version of Star Fox 2 does exist!


This wouldn't be a first time that Nintendo cancelled a fully-completed game *looks at EarthBound Zero*, but don't expect the SNES Star Fox games to hit the Virtual Console -- too much legal mess due to Argonaut's collapse.

Wait, i thought it was already known that the game was complete? Did people think it only got to Beta stage or something?

People knew the game was complete, they just didn't know a finished version existed for retail.  People took earlier builds of Star Fox 2 and polished them up according to information developers involved in the project released, but it wasn't an official finished build.  It was a fan-built build.


If somebody who comes across said retail build and leaks it online, then we would have an official finished game out there.

I hear it was at the omega stage, with no items and fox was the only character.
