While the ship is called the Great Fox, Corneria is the homeworld for Fox McCloud and most of the characters in the series. An Earth-like planet,it's a "good" planet in the series. The stage has been around since Melee and had always been one of my top favorites.
The right side of the stage is for more braver warriors. I would always remember my brother using Pikachu or Pichu and wait for me at this point with a tricky special move. Back in the Melee days anyway.
It has its own hazards such as arwings and wolfen ships.
You can also reach the laser cannons, but it's rather useless to do so, and a good way to lose a life for no reason at all.
But I'm very glad it returned for Smash Bros. Ultimate, I would hate it if this one somehow got left out of it.
