    And the project is allegedly a real sequel to Starfox vs the upcoming Rare game that had the Starfox theme bolted onto it.

    Huh? Why would Namco do a Starfox game?

    Why would Sega do a F-Zero game?

    The rumour goes that it'll be a joint console/arcade game on the TriForce technology ala F-Zero.

    It's going to be a Starfox shooter. The rumor has been going for about a week.

    Namco and Nintendo do Starfox? Nintendo and Sega do F-Zero... Sega bring back Tojam and Earl and Panzer Dragoon...... pure orgasmic videogaming joy. No wonder I am into videogames like never before.

    Cool news! After experiencing Rogue Leader, I can't wait to see Star Fox on the 'Cube.

    I think I'll play the SNES original to celebrate. Maybe I'll actually beat it this time.

    Yeah, this is great great news!

    I haven't played Starfox 64 in ages...perhaps I'll have to revisit it. I remember buying that one just so I could get the Rumble Pak with it.

    Before you know it, Nintendo and Square will make Super Mario RPG 2. They just seem to be trying to work with everyone.
