Star Fox, by Tyler West.
Not too realistic, because an overly realistic Star Fox cast would just be animals in flight jackets. But this is a good compromise.
Even if you can get used to the awkward controls, Star Fox Zero is merely mediocre. It’s as disappointing a major Nintendo console release as there’s been in some time.
It’s short, coming in at around 13 minutes, but remember: this is a team effort between Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell), WIT Studios (Attack on Titan) and Shigeru Miyamoto. And it’s pretty damn cool.
It’s barely related to the Star Fox series and has mostly been ignored in the year of hype leading to the release of its big brother Star Fox Zero, but the new oddball Star Fox Guard tower defense game from Nintendo and Platinum is well worth your attention.
Nintendo is streaming a Star Fox anime short on April 20. Titled Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins, it’s a collaboration between Production I.G of the Ghost in the Shell anime fame, WIT Studios of the Attack on Titan anime fame and Shigeru Miyamoto of Shigeru Miyamoto fame.
It’s never been strange for Nintendo to delay a game until they’re happy, but Star Fox 2 was a rare moment it canceled a game that was almost done.
Star Fox Zero, which was supposed to be released this year, is now coming on April 22 for Wii U.

Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has just published a statement on the company’s Facebook page saying that Star Fox Zero for the Wii U has been delayed. Bummer.

While Kyoto is famously home to thousands of ancient Japanese shrines, the one that inspired a young Miyamoto…
I’m optimistic about many things in gaming, but I’m a confirmed Amiibo skeptic. I fear the day a Zelda dungeon or Smash Bros. character is locked out for those who didn’t purchase the right $13 Amiibo figure. Well, at least I don’t need to fret about the new Star Fox’s use of Amiibos.
Print it out big and wrap it around your fridge.
The new Star Fox game for Wii U is an unusual mix of old and new, a game that sometimes feels like a remake and other times like a radical experiment. The game’s developers at Nintendo and—surprise—Platinum recently broke it all down for me.
Nintendo promised a new Star Fox was coming, and, yep, a new Star Fox game is coming.
Shmuplations might sound like a website designed solely for hardcore shoot ‘em up fans, but it’s actually an incredible repository of old, translated interviews with Japanese game designers.
2014: A wonderful year full of fantastic titles. Everyone on TAY has been singing praises of their best of the year, and after so many great Best Of lists, so I didn't feel like I had much more to say regarding that.
