Star Fox: Assault (スターフォックス アサルト Sutā Fokkusu Asaruto?) is a video game that was developed by Namco and published by Nintendo. It was released for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released in North America on February 14, 2005, in Japan on February 24, 2005, and in Europe on April 29, 2005.

Star Fox: Assault has three types of gameplay: Arwing gameplay, Landmaster gameplay, and on foot gameplay. Arwing gameplay is similar to Star Fox and Star Fox 64, where players guide Fox McCloud's Arwing spacecraft through stages. The player shoots down enemies and has to defend their teammates. Power-ups are placed on stages to help the player. In some stages, the player may hop out of the Arwing. In Landmaster gameplay, the player guides a tank called the Landmaster. Players shoot or run over enemies, and help their teammates when they need help. On foot gameplay is similar to a traditional third-person shooter video game. The player starts with a blaster, a type of gun, and they can get stronger weapons such as machine guns and sniper rifles.

Multiplayer can be played with up to four players. Players can play on foot or in a vehicle. New characters, weapons, items, and maps can be unlocked as the player plays the game.
