    SFZ Release Date Announced

    By DZComposer, in Star Fox News,

    Nintendo has announced that SFZ will drop on Nov. 20, at least in NA and Europe (I'm having trouble finding the Japanese date).
    Interestingly, the NOA's site lists number of players now as "2 players alternating."

    Satoru Iwata has died.

    By DZComposer, in Nintendo News,

    Nintendo Co. Ltd. released a one-sentence press release this morning containing sad news: Satoru Iwata passed away on Saturday.
    The cites Iwata-san's bile duct problem as the cause of death.
    My thoughts are with his family and friends.
    This is a sad day for Nintendo. Sure, some questioned his leadership as Nintendo boldly, if not stubbornly, stayed on its own path. But he also led the company through its most profitable era ever.
    In the end, will we ever understand?
    The release implies that Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda will run the company in the interim.

    Star Fox Zero Revealed

    By DZComposer, in Star Fox News,

    Star Fox for Wii U now has an official title: Star Fox Zero.
    Miyamoto says it's not a remake or a sequel.
    What we know:
    Arwing can transform into a walker like in Star Fox 2.
    Landmaster also exists, and can transform into a flying craft.
    Gyrowing is a new vehicle, previous known as the "Arwingcopter" in last year's demo. It deploys a little Robot that looks like the offspring of an NES R.O.B and Wall-E.
    Star Fox and Star Wolf teams appear to be their SF64 compositions: Fox, Falco, Peppy, Slippy and Wolf, Leon, Pigma, Andrew.
    You will have to protect Great Fox from missiles like in SF64 Sector Z
    "All Range Mode" exists.
    Aparoid-like enemies.
     
     

    E3 - Pre-Event Thoughs

    By DZComposer, in Nintendo News,

    The Nintendo Digital Event starts in just over 2 hours from posting time. It is almost certain that we will be getting news on Star Fox, given that the game is still slated for this year.
    I think it is important to remember that what we saw last year was part of a proof-of-concept build. I'm certain that what we will see today will be vastly different. I think we should all remember that. The mechanics presented in that demo are probably the only things to stay. I'm hopeful we'll get a name and some small story details, but we'll see. There really isn't much more I can say about Star Fox, given that we don't know anything. Once things have been revealed, I will be able to provide an opinion with more substance.
    Another game to look forward to is Super Mario Maker. What seemed to be a dinky little level maker turns out to be a full-fleged Mario level creation experience capable of doing things that even the Super Mario World ROM hackers can only dream of. I'm really looking forward to this game now, especially after seeing the levels made for the Nintendo World Championships.
    I'm not going to make any predictions about new game announcements at this point. Others have done that. But, an interesting tweet from Retro Studios implies that we may finally learn what they are working on.
    I recommend SF-O members watch the stream (you can here: http://www.twitch.tv/nintendo ). I will make a post about the Star Fox game, but it probably won't happen until after the event.
