Starlink, Ubisoft's toys-to-life game about flying around in cool space ships, is launching on October 26th worldwide, on all platforms, but Nintendo Switch players are getting a special surprise.

In related news, online listings for the game have revealed a download of 15GB via a wireless connection will be required in order to play, even if you own a physical copy.

Starlink's release date is set for October 16 for Switch, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Considering we're expecting a rumoured Star Fox racing hybrid from Retro Studios, could this be Nintendo testing the waters for Ubisoft to make a full Star Fox outing?
