Star Fox 2 programmer unaware of game’s finished release
You might not know the name Dylan Cuthbert, owner of the Q-Gamers games studio, but back in the day he help program Star Fox for the SNES and it’s sequel Star Fox 2 that never saw release due to the power house of the PlayStation and Sega Saturn entering the market and upping the quality of 3D graphics. You would think Nintendo would have him come and finish Star Fox 2 for the Mini SNES release, but nope, he was surprised as everyone else when the news first broke. With some interviews at some other websites, Cuthbery is quoted saying:
“It made my day,” Cuthbert said being pleased that Star Fox 2 is finally getting an official release, adding, “It’s bloody awesome!”
“I mean, I had completely given up on the chance that it might come out. I spent two years of hard work making it and loved every minute. Finally people get to see all the little cool tweaks and things, all the touches and special ideas we threw in there. This game had so much experimentation at the start and that really shows in some of the encounters you’ll come across.”
We hope that whoever was brought on to finish the game will do it in the same spirit that Cuthbert had envisioned for the game. In the meantime, it will be a cut throat battle to get your hands on a mini SNES without paying high prices on one.
