Star Fox 64

Since our last report on the new Nintendo leaks, a bunch of additional findings have been publicized online. Much of what has been found over the past day or so pertains to N64 titles, including beta/unused enemies for Super Mario 64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time. We also have a look at scrapped items for Mario Kart 64 and more.

Here’s the roundup of notable discoveries:

Rick May, the original voice of Peppy Hare and Andross, has passed away. May had moved into a nursing home for rehabilitation after recovering from a stroke, but unfortunately caught the coronavirus while there.

Aside from voicing those two Nintendo characters in Star Fox 64, May played the role of The Soldier in Team Fortress II as well as the narrator and voice of Genghis Khan in Age of Empires II. He was more than just a voice actor having appeared in major motion pictures, TV shows and commercial. We’d also be remiss if we failed to mention that May was a teacher at Rekindle School.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to May’s family as well as all other affected by the coronavirus.

Geek Melee held an interesting interview with the English voice cast of Star Fox 64 – most of whom reprised their roles for Star Fox: Zero. Make sure to check out the full interview over on Geek Melee; below are a few highlights:

Bill Johns on voicing Falco:

“They showed me a still print of the Falco character and said ‘think Han Solo.’  I guess whatever came out was what they wanted.

There wasn’t a tremendous amount of copy in those early games.  I’m pretty sure everything Falco said fit on a page and a half of script, in large font and double spaced”

Jock Blaney on not returning as Wolf for the 3DS remake of Star Fox 64:

“I was a little disappointed at not returning. It may have been because I moved from Seattle some years back and was now working out of Las Vegas and they wanted their talent to be local Seattle.  It would have been fun!”

Mike West on the response to his performance as Fox in Smash Bros. 4:

“I try not to read social media crap but I saw some pretty harsh comments about my performance as well as a couple of other voice actors.”
