Just a few days ago, while I was working on my Shat-Canned Legends documentary and researching further about EarthBound 64, I stumbled up these interesting screens and an article that concern Star Fox 2. Some of which are screens that seem to show an official English translation:
Other pics that might interest are the article about Star Fox 2:

And the unused official box art for the game:
This game was scheduled to have been released on November 1995, right around the time when the Nintendo Ultra 64 was originally meant to launch in. The game was, according to Programmer Dylan Cuthbert, the game was "fully complete". However, producer and co-creator Shigeru Miyamoto felt the need for his development staff to get away from 3D on the SNES and just focus on developing for the then-upcoming Ultra 64 instead, specifically Super Mario 64, where that game would include many elements from Star Fox 2, specifically the camera angle dynamics.
Quite possibly the most famous unreleased title in the world, it's such a shame that such a wonderful game like this didn't see the light of day in retail. That doesn't do the game any justice and something should be done about it! ;) Unreleased games are awesome. Let's get Nintendo to release this and EarthBound NES (Zero is a fan name, not official. D=) on Virtual Console!
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to demonstrate how this whole game plays in action as the eighth entry of my PEMNAS playthrough series on the REAL Expert Mode with Corneria actually taking damage! This is also the patched English version with no debug display too which fixes most of the game's glitches and bugs. Plus it's presented in HD! Hope you enjoy this run as much as I had. =) Also, PEMNAS stands for "PLEASE EXCUSE MY NOOB ASS SKILLS". I invented the term myself.

One last thing I'd like to point out. With the right controller settings, the game plays very similarly to Mega Man Legends. :110: That's definitely a neat thing (to me at least, cause I'm used to those kind of controls.)
