Nintendo of Australia have finally landed a release date for Star Fox 64 3D on Nintendo 3DS, which many of you will more likely know as Lylat Wars - the name it was released under for Nintendo 64 here in Australia (and to this day we're really not sure why) all those years ago in October 1997 (I remember it like it was 1997).
A complete graphical update brings a Nintendo classic into the era of portable 3D fun. The game makes effective use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s dual screens: The top screen features 3D aerial combat, while the bottom screen displays characters and dialogue.

A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce aerial combat via a local wireless connection (using four systems and one game card via DS Download Play). The multiplayer mode also includes new power-ups and special weapons. Players can use the Nintendo 3DS system’s inner camera to display a live video feed of competitors' faces as they battle, bringing a new level of fun and personalisation to the multiplayer experience.
So you'll be able to climb in the cockpit of Fox's Arwing this September 15 at an SRP of AU$69.95 ($99.00 in NZ).

Basically, someone else held the trademark in Europe (and we get whatever Europe gets).

Lylat Wars didn't use the Expansion Pak, it came bundled with a Rumble Pak.

I don't recall the Expansion Pak getting hot anyway.

Star Fox 64 is $45.99 on OzGameShop for pre-order.

Interesting that they're calling it Star Fox 64 here instead of Lylat Wars. I kind of preferred the name Lylat Wars.

A little off-topic, since the SNES game was named Starwing in European regions (including Australia), I don't understand why Nintendo didn't just name the Nintendo 64 game Starwing 64 instead of Lylat Wars?

Star Wing was the greatest SNES game ever (even just for its epic soundtrack) and poohed all over the N64 version, I wish they would remake that one. I've also played a nearly finished version of Star Fox 2 on the SNES (torrent search for the ROM and get the ZSNES emulator), it was better than Lylat Wars too, it also had the potential to be better than the original!

I also clicked on the comments section to explain the reason behind the regional naming of the Star Fox series in PAL regions, Mantorok beat me to it!

ZSNES is a bit old and outdated now, better off with newer versions of Snes9x or bsnes.

I loved Starwing, but I really preferred Lylat Wars. It was just an improved version of the original. I can't really think of anything I preferred about the original game, though I agree about the soundtrack being awesome.
