During today’s Direct, Nintendo revealed that the Switch version of Starlink: Battle for Atlas will get an update in April that adds even more Star Fox content, including new playable characters and new missions.
Most excitingly, Star Fox’s trusty wingmen Peppy, Slippy, and Falco will be added as playable characters. Each will have their own unique pilot abilities and skill trees to go along with them.
Those three characters will also be playable in both the Star Fox missions from the base game and the new Star Fox missions that are coming alongside them. Those missions will be centered around taking on Star Wolf’s lieutenants.
This new content is planned for sometime in April and will be part of an update that also includes starship races and special faction missions, though these weren’t detailed further during the Direct.
For everything else that was, be sure to follow IGN’s coverage of today’s Nintendo Direct.
