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. However, one day, as they're approaching Dinosaur Planet at the edge of the Lylat System, they receive a message from General Pepper asking Fox to investigate what's caused the world to suddenly start breaking up and find a way to fix it.

On the day of the game's release, it was announced that Nintendo sold its stock in the company back to Rare, which was immediately sold back out to Microsoft. Several games previously under development for the Nintendo Gamecube, including "Perfect Dark 0" and "Kameo: Elements of Power" were redeveloped as X-Box titles. See more

Fox later addresses Andross's motives, referring to Krystal by name again. Fox was never given a chance to directly learn Krystal's name throughout the entire course of the game. Likewise, Neither should Peppy have known her name as he mentions a message he received from her. And Krystal also knows Fox by name, as shown in the message she sent (the one received by Peppy). In the beginning of Fox's part of the story, you can look at General Pepper's game status records, which names Krystal as being the one who released the first Krazoa spirit. Again, this is before Fox ever saw or heard about her. See more
Scales, you are no longer any use to me.
Who are you? I DEMAND you show yourself!
