Star Fox. In HD. Read This Now.
You won’t be needing that blaster where we’re going, Fox
If Nintendo won’t give it to us, it looks like someone else will:
This project is a fan made standalone game that runs on the FreeSpace Open engine. It is not a mod since you do not need FreeSpace in order to run it. Shadows of Lylat is not for any console system, and we are not affiliated by Nintendo, Argonaut Software, Namco, Q-Games, or anyone else terribly important. To play it, all you will need is a fairly recent computer system. Exact system requirements aren’t set yet, but they shouldn’t be that bad.
*Space and ground based missions
*Compaign and Coop mode
*Huge multiplayer wars
*A deep storyline
And much more!

Is it going to be just like Star Fox?
No. Star Fox is more of an arcade shooter, while Freespace is a simulation shooter. While the SCP allows us to do many awesome things, we won’t be able to get it just like the original games.
So it’s basically a hybrid Freespace/Star Fox game which sounds about as good as a late night ‘meeting’ with Salma Hayek and Scarlett Johansson1 and I got dibs on being in the middle.
And now some videos (keep a pair of clean shorts handy):
