What would a star fox 64 2 for N64 have been like?

Nintendo has made Majora's mask in under 2 years by recycling a lot of content to make OoT and yet it is very different and and so one of the most beloved entries in that series.  If Star fox 64 2 has a similar sort of development history ad Majora's mask and still be on the N64 console, what would have been like?

Probably a select few new planets, maybe some from SNES SF2 or SF64, and a few more planets involving the non-Arwing vehicles.  Would have been nice to have had a Blue Marine level that had more urgency to it.

I'd imagine the multiplayer modes would have been expanded on since the original's was servicable at best.  If the RAM expander was used, maybe the level design could afford to be less barren even with 4 player play.

They'd probably need a hook that would motivate people to buy it, but theres always a chance it could have just been a case of "More similar content and more refinement".

"More similar content and more refinement".

That probably would've been the case. It's that, or the devs let their minds go free, and put Star Fox in the infamous black hole, which instead of transporting them between specific locations, takes them somewhere completely different, and... out of this dimension.

... But I can speculate! ;)

      Having discovered the CDs with the full osts, has there been any attempt at ripping the full soundtracks with flac/scans? These are super expensive and seemingly hard to get, surely someone musta been frustrated by this...

      I'm The VGM Lover. I share a good Video Game tune/remix/cover every single day down on my twitter page (which you can find in my signature down below). I also happen to have been here since 2015, a year before I started my twitter (I used to call myself amcintyr9998, and was nicknamed Cintyr, until I finally changed it later in 2016).
      When I see a damn good cover of a damn good Star Fox tune like this one, you bet your bums I'm gonna showcase it, and now, I'd also like to take this time to open up a new conversation on it. If you have thoughts on it, share it here! The pleasure is all mine!

      Wolf O'Donnell is arguably one of the most mysterious character in the Star Fox Franchise, however there are hints about what backstory the mysterious canine might have.
      While Wolf is said to have been 19 years old during Star Fox 64, he appears to have been retconned into being much older than Fox in Star Fox Assault judging by his older sounding and rougher voice in said game. His tone of voice later on was carried over to Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Star Fox Zero, and the StarFox Wiki goes as far as listing him as 38 years old, with Fox being listed as 29.
      While Wolf has no Homeworld established, it's safe to assume Wolf may not have originated from Corneria, as both General Pepper and Cornerian soldiers appear to speak with American accents. Additionaly, the Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins Animated Short suggests that Corneria's native population consists only of cats and dogs.
      This has lead to some people speculating that Wolf may have originated from elsewhere in the galaxy, such as Macbeth (Such as the Lylat Legacy fanseries comic, and the fanfiction called Notorious: The Life of Wolf O'Donnell.)
      Despite this, the manual for Star Fox Assault states that Wolf has been wanted by the Cornerian army for many years due to crimes such as larnecy and treason.
      It is also unclear when Star Wolf was formed. It is stated that Wolf formed Star Wolf when he was hired by Andross, however the Star Fox Wiki claims Star Wolf and Star Fox tangled in battle many times before then, but Wolf's trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS suggests that Wolf formed Star Wolf after having served Andross before the latter was exiled to Venom. The Star Fox Wiki claims Wolf met Leon in a bar on Venom after being hired by Andross to form Star Wolf.
      Hence, it is difficult to establish when exactly the team was formed, or who he formed it with.
      Interestingly, the Star Fox wiki claims Wolf used to be the leader of a gang of Space Pirates, presumably the same ones who fought the Cornerian Army at Sector Z. If this is true, it would explain how Wolf recruited various criminals around the time of Star Fox Assault, who even went as far as call him "Lord O'Donnell".
      The Japanese Star Fox 64 guide interestingly refers to Star Wolf as a "band of outcasts manipulated by Pigma." Judging by the Star Fox Assault manual mentioning Wolf being wanted for larnecy and treason, it's safe to assume Wolf does still have some kind of past connection with Corneria. Pigma manipulating Star Wolf is also backed up by Pigma's Smash 4 trophy claiming he convinced Wolf to form Star Wolf, but as previously stated, exactly when is difficult to establish.
      Wolf is also said to have a past rivalry with James McCloud in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This was later confirmed in Star Fox Zero with Wolf saying the following to Fox during their one-on-one battle on Fichina: "I'm impressed! I haven't had this much fun since I fought your father." And an unused Voice Clip has Wolf say the following: "What's wrong? Your father put up more of a fight!"
      Wolf is also hinted at having a grudging respect for James and Fox. In Star Fox Assault, Wolf would utter the following words if he shot down Fox: "You ain't your father after all..." Additionaly, Star Fox Command claims that both Fox and Wolf have a grudging respect towards each other.
      A user on Gamefaqs has also stated Miyamoto said that Fox and Wolf were friends before Wolf was contacted by Pigma. Wolf is also said to have had a pupil-master relationship with James on the StarFox Wiki.
      This makes sense since Fox clearly knows about Star Wolf before they meet each other on Fichina in Star Fox 64 and in Sector Beta in Star Fox Zero. 

      Wolf's quotes in Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Zero have also let many fans to believe Wolf had some kind of involvement with the death of James McCloud, where Wolf would say "You'll be seeing your dad soon, Fox!" in SF64 and "You'll be seeing your father soon..." in SF0.

      I am aware that the StarFox wiki lacks sources however. If anyone has any information or hints about Wolf and his team, feel free to post in the comments.

      Star Fox 64 is now available on the Nintendo eShop as a Wii U Virtual Console title! Nintendo of Europe released the game on March 24, 2016 for a promotional price of only €4.99 / £4.49 until April 21, 2016, one day before the expected release of Star Fox Zero; the price will afterwards revert to the standard Nintendo 64 Virtual Console game price of €9.99 / £8.99, so you better hurry and take advantage of this offer!
      Nintendo of America have made no announcements at the time this thread was posted.

      NOTICE: For the first time ever, Europeans can play the U.S. version of Star Fox 64 at its glorious full 60 Hz! Additionally, if you previously purchased Lylat Wars from the Wii Shop Channel on or transferred to the same Wii U console, you can get the Nintendo eShop re-release at only a fraction of the price as any other Nintendo 64 title, despite it being the U.S. version with the proper "Star Fox 64" moniker.

      I was watching a video on Star Fox Wii U and when I went to click on another one I clicked this by accident. When I heard the intro for the video I could have sworn I have heard the tune before.
       
      Does anyone know what the tune is in the first 4 or so seconds of this video. It's been driving me insane for awhile now and I can't remember where I've heard it before, or if I am just insane.
       

       
      Oh, and the song itself is pretty good too.
