Starlink: Battle for Atlas got its moment in the spotlight during Ubisoft’s E3 conference and wowed the crowd with the appearance of Starfox‘s Fox McCloud. Now, Nintendo Treehouse got a hands-on look at the game, showcasing gameplay and the “Smart Building Technology” accompanying the ship models in the game. You can check it out below.

Players of Starlink: Battle for Atlas will find themselves in the shoes of a heroic group of interstellar pilots tasked with saving the Atlas from the Forgotten Legion, an evil robot force. Additionally, the Nintendo Switch version will feature Fox McCloud and his Arwing ship as an exclusive.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be an open world game with a somewhat unique way of customizing starships, which is showcased heavily in conjunction with the Nintendo Switch in the gameplay video below. The game features a wide variety of different pilot abilities and weapon types alongside the many ships available for use, allowing players a significant range of adaptability in constructing their rigs. Unlike many toy-to-life games, players will also have the ability to construct their starship digitally in addition to the physical pieces they can collect, though physical and digital pieces will be compatible with each other.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be available on October 16th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, featuring unique content for players of the Nintendo Switch version in partnership with Nintendo.
