Star Fox DS renamed

US version due in August.

Nintendo's new Star Fox game for DS is to be called Star Fox Command - and is due out on August 28th across the pond.

Fox, Peppy and all the other annoying little gits Namco tried to ruin will be back in the sky in a touch-sensitive version of the classic shooter that features eight-player wireless gameplay as well as four-player Wi-Fi Connection support.

According to Nintendo's official website, Star Fox Command will use the touch-screen to allow players to plot courses for their team-mates thanks to a new strategic element - where it's more about taking over bases and advancing across a map than simply shooting at stuff.

More on Star Fox Command closer to release. Check out shots and a trailer in the meantime.
