New dates, screenshots, hands-on, Screenshots & video
At this weeks E3 (Electronic Entertainments Expo), Nintendo showcased a deluge of games, including Zelda GC, Mario Sunshine, and..... Starfox Adventures!
Good news on the release date front, too - Sept 10th still holds for the US, with a fully optimised, PAL 60hrz version hitting Europe, Australia and New Zealand sometime in November. We bloody love you, Rare!

I managed to track down someone who actually played the E32K2 build of the game, and this is what he had to say;
"Star Fox, I played probably the least. I also played this at the Cube Club event in Los Angeles last year (although I didn't have to slip unnoticed into that particular event.) Sadly, I didn't see anywhere near the entire demo, but the graphics were able to impress me as I wandered aimlessly about a dinosaur village (or what certainly looked like one, at least.) The one thing I can say for certain is that the voice acting is nice. I couldn't hear the musical score, as it was REALLY loud in Ninty's booth, but the screen next to the one I was playing on had the volume cranked up a bit and I heard a bit of voice acting. Krystal's is especially nice; she talks in a believable foreign language. (It kind of reminded me of Atlantis: The Lost Empire, for any who have seen it.) Fox's voice is great, and the shopkeeper who I heard talk had a funny accent that made him seem much quirkier than he would have otherwise (and I'm certain that was Rare's intent.) I then proceeded to get lost in the shop (You know a game is going to be huge when you get lost in a SHOP) and had to pass the controller on to a more worthy gamer than myself. "
Plus, we have the E3 Starfox Video, and at 900Kb, how could you not download it?
