[FACT] The silver phoenix

Recommended Posts

Here's a fact for Starfox SNES.

Well I can say the name is 100% accurate.

However, the accuracy of content of the article is limited by my understanding of japanese and google's accuracy. The japaneses text was obtained using an online japanese character recognition software. And then using japanese learning tools, dictionnary and various translator, and grammar guides, I got this work in progress. I gave up translating before the end, because I though its mostly filler material..

I joined my translation notes. The original page can be seen here : http://f.starfox-online.net/sf/guides/youngselection/comicscript.php?currentpage=49

Basically the strange bird that appears and drop energy rings in starfox snes is called Silver Phoenix. It only appears on some levels when you miss the checkpoint ring on the level.

Its not a very big deal, but I always wondered why that bird thing appeared for some reasons... It might be useful for a tip and trick section. :)

I have more complete and relevant stuff on the way.

Translation:

Shocking new fact!

Ghost, or miracle !?

Appearence of a strange invulnerable bird !!

Silver Phoenix appear !!

Avoid the supply ring and a strange bird will appear.

That's the Silver Phoenix!

Be glad, this bird scatters small supply rings.

At times not going through the ring (will result in this) gift of providence!

But, going through the ring as usual will restore your shields.

As far as taking it out, it's impossible.

Oh god, I remember that thing over Venom just before you take out the Phantron. Always took the rings it gave not knowing what it was.

 

Weird.

Yeah I've always wondered what the heck that thing was. Now I know thanks to psy. :-P

 

Damn it Nintendo this is what you get for not releasing a SNES Star Fox player's guide here in the U.S. DX

 

Also, someone made a pretty interesting video about it:

Yeah, I saw it. He did a pretty nice job with the presentation.

Though, I think he's exaggerating a little with crediting me for writing about this first :/

I don't think I should get credits for finding something that was already publicly available like that.
