Star Fox

Star Fox is one of Nintendo's many famous money-making franchises. The first game in the series, developed by Argonaut, revolutionized the way Super Famicom and SNES games were made. Utilizing the power of the Super FX Chip, it created the first 3D-esque experience on a home console.

The Super FX Chip was an additional math co-processor that was built into the game pack and helped the Super Famicom and SNES render the game's graphics. The Super FX Chip has been used in other Super Famicom/SNES games as well, some with increased processing speed. It was later released in Europe as Star Wing. Its sequel, Star Fox 64, further revolutionized the video game industry by being the first Nintendo 64 game to feature the Rumble Pak. It was later released in Europe as Lylat Wars. The Rumble Pak's concept is still used today, in modern consoles such as the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and GameCube.

The original game was a forward-scrolling fixed shooter, later sequels have added more directional freedom as the series progressed.
