Star Fox
The first Star Fox series of video games was released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was the first three-dimensional Nintendo game, and it included the Super FX chip, a coprocessor used to accelerate graphics display, which became Nintendo’s first game to use 3D polygon graphics. The complex display of three-dimensional models with polygons was still new and uncommon in console video games, and the game was much-hyped as a result. Fan Filmmakers have re-imagined the Star Fox property and the characters into their own conceptional short.
