Should there be a Final Fantasy-esque Star Fox RPG game?

Think about it. It would be cool.

Maybe it would star Krystal as the main character? Have it be a story of her tragic past.

No. We already had one major genre shift in the series and I think it did more harm than good.

The series has suffered enough. Please, no more genre shifts.

You know, we never did figure out who Krystal's parents were. You could start out as young Krystal growing up on Cerinia,

and then she could discover her destiny etc.

Although I'm much more keen on the idea of having it star Slippy Toad and having the center focus

be on his romance with Amanda.

NOT.

I don't know... The Sonic series is arguably doing as bad as Star Fox these days, yet the upcoming Sonic RPG for the DS looks to be really really good. I say it could be done, and done well. Also, massively multiplayer would be nice.

This isn't a game-quality issue. SFAD was an above-average game to say the least. But, it ultimately hurt the franchise, and fractured the fanbase in a way that it has yet to recover from (and probably never will).

Also, how could you do a Star Fox MMO? You couldn't. I don't want to see 600 Foxes or 300 Krystals running around. If you let people create their own characters, it waters down the story and the game is no longer a SF game, but a 'Lyalt War' game. It could be done, and the final product could be a good game, but it would not help the franchise.

Star Fox needs to take a serious visit back to it's roots. I don't mind an on-foot mission here or there, but it should be mainly Arwing action. SFAs was on the ground too much.

The same way they did the Star Wars MMO? There aren't hundreds of Darth Vaders running around.

I would like to play a Lylat War game. It would be cool to visit all the locals, do missions and such, even if it wasn't with Fox crew.

Star Wars wasn't as narrow a story as SF. The range of canonical events is vastly greater, and also there are a lot more ways to do it. The Jedi Order was not limited in membership, at least to the extent SF is. Sith have the rule of 2, but there are holes in the canon that could allow for the existence of others.

As much as they would have to make up for a SF MMO, they may as well create a new franchise.

I agree with DZ...  StarFox is at the core simple arcade-style game, and I like the simplicity of it -- no in-depth stories, no deep character development, very simple gameplay.  MMOifying it or RPGifying it I think would just slaughter that simplicity, which is a lot of what I love about the game.

The closest to an RPG StarFox could be (in my opinion) and maintain that simplicity would be some slight elements, like customizing your Arwings loadouts between missions, getting new equipment, maybe calling in reinforcements sometimes -- stuff that would just slightly tweak how you approach levels.  Multipath levels would be kinda cool too.  But anything beyond that would just start getting unnecessarily complicated...

Yeah, that would be a great addition for the series. I should e-mail Nintendo about that.

Yeah, I know right now you don't believe me, but I asked for their e-mail in a letter once, and they included it when they wrote back.

the guys making lylat wars seem smarter then Nintendo, just saying the graphics look great, but we should wait for the game play first.

If they did make a star fox MMO it could be an off-series thing I mean they Command wasnt really canon.

And star wars is still going on, at least a little, they still keep making stuff for it and theres a MMO based on it.

So it could work, you never know.....
