Alright, this is something I heard while browsing around. There are people within the fandom of Starfox that believe it is a dying series. I must admit that it is fairly inactive compared to other Nintendo series, but is it really dying off? What are other peoples thoughts on the matter?

Depends, StarFox doesnt bring in the money, plus I think it get popular again when big N released SF64 3DS.

I think it is the Rare company in general. look at some of their other titles, Banjo-Kazooie, Killer Instinct, Battle Toads.....they all had either a sequel, or a third game......and yet...even though they are loved, there are just not that many continuations in most of their games (with the Exception of Donkey Kong)

It honestly does seem that way; the more recent iterations of the series are said to be mediocre, and they do not have as much effort put into them as their older counterparts. No single developer has taken on the series, Nintendo more or less ignores everything that isn't Mario, Zelda, or Metroid, and the series hasn't been well received by the critics in a long time. Hopefully they can get it right eventually :smile:

I know what you mean (And you forgot to mention Pokemon xD)

I loved Banjo-Kazooie and hell even Banjo-Tooie.......but when the third came out on X-Box....i was annoyed cause I have no x-box.... and cause from what I seen on youtube (like intros and all) it looks like an interesting game, and made it interesting by how they gave the characters more facial personalities.....that is why in another topic I was thinking if Rareware (if anything) became like Sega....and focused on only a few series, (StarFox being the main with Banjo-Kazooie being a good second) then we might ACTUALLY get a good game with an awesome story line and terrific graphics.

I think it'll only die when the fans let it. Whether or not new games come out, you know?

Starfox is far from dead. If people believe Starfox is dying from the lack of a new title for 5 years, then I say look at Metroid, they skipped the N64 and look what the series got on the Gamecube.
