Information about the upcoming Star Fox 64 3D game has been released by an attendee of Nintendo's retailer briefing today.

According to the Japanese shop's Twitter feed, the game is said to include a 3DS mode, N64 mode, and Battle mode.

3DS mode will make use of the platform's gyro sensor to control your ship. Battle mode on the other hand will support four players as well as download play. During combat your face will be shown as an icon so that players will be able to easily identify one another.

The game, however, will not have online play via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Star Fox 64 3D is slated for release on July 14 in Japan. No firm Western release has been given.

A nice blast from the past for 3DS but it's slightly gutting that there will be no online play.
