It takes less than an hour to reach the credits in Star Fox 64 3D but there’s 15 planets to explore and two endings to see if you want to get the most out of this Nintendo 64 remake.
We’ve taken the time to find journey across each and every sector and planet to piece together this Galaxy Guide to explain which paths lead you where as you venture across the Lylat system.
Star Fox 64 3D has an impressive 25 possible routes through the game and only 11 of these will lead you to the true end boss fight against Mad Scientist Andross.
There are 15 locations across Lylat many of which have alternate routes which change the course of your journey.
For example, the easy route is as follows:
Corneria > Meteo > Finchina > Sector X > Titania > Bolse > Venom
The Harder Route often requires you to meet a secondary objective which at times isn’t as obvious as it looks. The Hard Route is as follows:
Corneria > Sector Y > Aquas > Zoness > Sector Z > Area 6 > Venom
Anyone wanting to see the game’s real ending will have to make sure they use whatever path to make it to Area 6 before reaching Venom.
Below you’ll find details on what paths are available on each level and how to access each one:
To get to Sector Y: Save Falco when the scenario arises and pass through all the arches across the water and you’ll divert your path to an alternate end boss fight with the Attack Carrier. Defeat it and you’ll be whisked off to Sector Y.
To get to Meteo: Don’t save Falco or fail to pass through all the arches and you’ll be taken to Meteo at the end of the level.
