"Nintendo Winter 2002" promotional booklet:

    Take charge of Star Fox team leader Fox McCloud to free the dinosaurs from Scales's sinister clutches and restore peace to the prehistoric paradise.

    Nintendo and Rare Ltd. join forces to bring Fox McCloud and friends to Nintendo GameCube. Eight years after defeating Andross, the Star Fox team discovers a lush planet ruled by an evil tyrant known as General Scales.

    For the first time ever, Fox McCloud will be able to step out of his Arwing and explore a vast, 3-D world full of gorgeous scenery, engaging animals, complex puzzles and adventure. But don't think he's completely written off traveling by flight: Fox will have to jump into his trusty Arwing fighter to get around the savaged planet, and the space battles won't be easy. Along the way, he will learn the secrets of a mystical staff to fend off enemies and use it to cast a variety of spells.

    As the player in control of Fox, you'll witness technologically advanced graphics with Rare's fur-rendering techniques and lavish effects including shimmering water, real-time lighting, depth-of-field blurring and a sophisticated facial animation system. The in-depth, life-like voice-overs and atmospheric musical score will enhance this whimsical story and draw you into a fully interactive world like none before. Star Fox Adventures truly is a quest that is out of this world.

    Breathtaking graphics and an epic storyline propel this all-new spectacular from Rare and Nintendo.

    The despotic General Scales has unleashed powers that are literally tearing apart the once-peaceful Dinosaur Planet. With the survival of Fox McCloud’s home planet at risk, the intrepid veteran of Star Fox 64 and Super Smash Bros. Melee gets an urgent message to battle Scales and his vast army of cackling SharpClaws.

    Fox gets strong support from Star Fox Team members Slippy, Peppy and Rob. Unexpected help comes Prince Tricky, the playful heir to the EarthWalker tribal throne. On the planet surface, Fox must rely on the mystical powers of a unique staff as he battles Scales’ minions, befriends peaceful plant-eaters and encounters eerie spirits that hold the key to the planet’s survival. Most intriguing of all is Krystal, a beautiful traveler from a distant planet.

    Rare and Nintendo have lovingly crafted the game’s incredible graphics, including gorgeous water effects and Fox’s phenomenally detailed fur. For a sharper and clearer image, select the Progressive Scan option when playing on a TV set that supports that feature.

    The sound is top-notch, too, from the uniformly brilliant voice talent to the endlessly evocative music. This game supports Dolby Pro Logic II.

Back of Case:
    Out of the cockpit...
    and into the epic adventure!


    At the far edge of the Lylat system, an army of diabolic dinosaurs has shattered the tranquil world of Dinosaur Planet. The future looks bleak...until Fox McCloud enters the fray. For the first time in his legendary career, Fox leaves his Arwing to battle enemies hand to hand with an enchanted staff of untold powers.

    In the biggest challenge in Team Star Fox's history, he'll wield weapons and magic against massive bosses, fly Arwing missions, and explore vast prehistoric lands. He'll need all the help he can get from old teammates Slippy and Peppy--and new allies like Prince Tricky and the mysterious Krystal. The balance of power shifts ever more to the evil General Scales, and the Fox hunt is on...
