Retro Namco Classics

Star Fox Assault

During the game you can unlock the Namco NES game Xevious by collecting all of the silver medals.

In the Japanese version, you can also unlock Battle City by collecting all of the bronze medals, and Star Luster by collecting all of the gold medals. These two Namco games were originally released only in Japan on the Famicom, and so were removed from the U.S. and European versions of Star Fox Assault as well.
