Star Fox (スターフォックス, Sutā Fokkusu, released as Star Wing in Europe due to trademark issues) is a shooter for the SNES. It was widely praised for its 3D graphics, at the time uncommon in console games.

A sequel titled Star Fox 2 was soon planned and was even advertised in catalogs, but it was cancelled in favour of Star Fox 64. Several playable prototypes exist.

Star Fox (Also known as Starwing in Europe due to legal problems with a Danish vacuum cleaner called "Star Fox") was created for the Super Nintendo in 1993. It spawned several sequels, including Star Fox 64, Star Fox Adventures, and Star Fox: Assault. There was also an unreleased sequel in development for the Super Nintendo called Star Fox 2.

The game was originally created as a demo of the Super FX chip that enabled primitive 3D graphics on the SNES. Shigeru Miyamoto slapped on characters, levels, and called it a game. This approach to creating the franchise is one of the reasons why Miyamoto feels no strong attachment to the series and shops it out to Rare and Namco.
