It has been eight years since Fox McCloud defeated the evil Andross. Since then, the Star Fox team has been on a slow downturn. Falco, a loyal friend of Fox, decided to leave the team in search of new challenges. Peppy, in his old age, quit his duties as a pilot to focus on navigation, and Slippy did likewise, focusing on his technological developments. While Fox and his comrades are recognized as heroes, they've received little in the way of work since Andross's death, and their ship, the Great Fox, has seen much better days.

After it has been activated, Fox and Tricky can hear Krystal's cries (possibly projected by Andross while he posed as a Krazoa spirit), and she is clearly speaking the Dinosaur tongue. See more
