Star Fox is a series of video games started by Nintendo in 1993. The original Star Fox was hailed as a marvel of graphics technology at the time, although it took a while for the game to really take off as people dived into its unique world. Sequels (most notably Star Fox 64) took advantage of the series' popularity, and were viewed as a benchmark against which other games were judged. Star Fox features many anthropomorphic characters, including Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Slippy Toad, Peppy Hare and Krystal Fox. The series as a whole is very successful, continuing to draw an avid fan base from most Nintendo gamers to this day.
