Star Fox 64 (スターフォックス64 Sutā Fokkusu Rokujūyon), known in Australia and Europe as Lylat Wars, is a 3D scrolling shooter aviation-themed video game for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It is a reboot of the original Star Fox, and the only game in the Star Fox series to be released on the Nintendo 64.

5.0-3251 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.9GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Multiple problems I'm seeing in this game differentiate from the original are also on real Wii. It's Virtual Console (VC for short) that's being horrible. It may not be a worthwhile to play this game on Wii or Dolphin when a better version exists, like Star Fox 64 3D for Nintendo 3DS and even the original version on Nintendo 64. I'm not sure about VC for Wii U but I've heard that Nintendo finally puts rumble support in there, it's a significant feature because Star Fox 64 made heavy use of it in which Wii's VC lacks at.
