Here is the press release below along with the trailer below.

Fox McCloud is Back in a Re-mastered
Nintendo Classic

Star Fox 64™ 3D invites players to take on the role of legendary Fox McCloud
as they lead a fearless squadron of fighters in fierce aerial combat to battle the
evil forces of Andross and save the galaxy from destruction.

The rich 3D visuals provide a remarkable sense of depth, distance and position as players
dodge meteors and blast enemy fighters out of the sky.
FEATURES:
• A complete graphical update brings a Nintendo classic into the era of portable 3D fun. The
game makes effective use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s dual screens: The top screen
features 3D aerial combat, while the bottom screen displays characters and dialogue.
• There are two control methods for the player to experience. The Nintendo 64 Mode offers
original controls, while the new Nintendo 3DS Mode uses the motion controls of the
built-in Gyro Sensor of the Nintendo 3DS system.
• Trusted wingmen Peppy, Slippy and Falco are along for the ride – if one of them is chased
or captured by an enemy, players must act to protect them in order to keep their team
strong.

• Each mission takes players through a different planet of the Lylat system as they blast
enemies, collect power-ups and fight powerful bosses on their way to the final battle.
• A new multiplayer option lets up to four players engage in fierce aerial combat via a local
wireless connection (using four systems and one game card via DS Download Play). The
multiplayer mode also includes new power-ups and special weapons. Players can use the
Nintendo 3DS system’s inner camera to display a live video feed of their faces as they
battle, bringing a new level of fun and personalization to the multiplayer experience.

We are glad that this series is back and hopefully more titles will come from the Star Fox Team.
