Star Fox (Also known as Starwing in Europe due to legal problems with a Danish vacuum cleaner called "Star Fox") was created for the Super Nintendo in 1993. It spawned several sequels, including Star Fox 64, Star Fox Adventures, and Star Fox: Assault. There was also an unreleased sequel in development for the Super Nintendo called Star Fox 2.

The game was originally created as a demo of the Super FX chip that enabled primitive 3D graphics on the SNES. Shigeru Miyamoto slapped on characters, levels, and called it a game. This approach to creating the franchise is one of the reasons why Miyamoto feels no strong attachment to the series and shops it out to Rare and Namco.
