Star Fox 64 (スターフォックス64), known in Australia and Europe as Lylat Wars, is a scrolling shooter video game for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It is a reboot of the original Star Fox, and the first game in the Star Fox series to be released on the Nintendo 64. It was also the first Nintendo 64 game to include support for the Rumble Pak, with which it initially came bundled. The game received positive ratings from reviewers and critics who praised its smooth animation, detailed visuals, voice acting, and use of multiple gameplay paths.
In the Super Smash Flash series
There is a multiplayer mode in this game in which players can shoot each other with blasters when on the ground. Fox uses his Blaster in Super Smash Flash as his standard attack, and in Super Smash Flash 2, both Fox and Falco use a Blaster as their standard special moves, back throws, up throws, and down throws. Additionally, the Landmaster, a land-based tank vehicle first appearing in this game, appears in SSF2 as Fox's Final Smash.
Sector Z, a stage from Super Smash Bros. based on a location of the same name from Star Fox 64, also appears as a sprited rendition in SSF2. The stage takes place on top of the Great Fox, the massive mother ship of the Star Fox team that also debuts in this game.
