Star Fox 2 is a multidirectional shooter video game.

Cancellation

It was developed by Nintendo EAD and Argonaut Software for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1995, however its release was cancelled as Nintendo worried it would be compared to games released on its competitor's 32-bit consoles, the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn.

Release

Unfinished prototype versions of the game made their way to the internet beginning in 1999. Nintendo published a complete build on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition in 2017 and on the SNES emulator through Nintendo Switch Online on Nintendo Switch in 2019.
