Development: Dinosaur Planet

Star Fox Adventures began life on the Nintendo 64 under the title "Dinosaur Planet". The game starred Sabre and Krystal and their animal friends Tricky and Kyte. You could switch between the characters and use their animal companions in different situations.

The game was very far along in development, with Rare releasing promotional artwork, gameplay videos and even MP3s of the soundtrack on their website.

Shigeru Miyamoto reviewed the content of the game and believed it would benefit from being moved to the upcoming GameCube hardware (sales of Nintendo 64 games were very low) and for the Star Fox license to be used. Rare reworked the game, changing some elements but keeping the majority of the gameplay intact, and the game was released as Star Fox Adventures.

Prince Tricky of the Earthwalker tribe appears to have been based on the Triceratops boss, also named Tricky, in Diddy Kong Racing. Both games were developed by Rare.
