RUMOR: The Year of Star Fox


DZComposer

Recommended Posts

I'm tagging this "Rumor" because it could be a mistranslation, but in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Miyamoto said something of huge interest to Star Fox fans.

It started when they asked who Miyamoto would play as in Smash. He said "Star Fox" (C'mon, Shiggy, you should know the character names in your own creations!) because it would be harder than playing as Kirby.

It was the next question, though, that suggest more was coming for Star Fox:

Q: You prefer a challenge.

A: This is gonna be the year of Star Fox. I’ll play as Star Fox for awhile.

Wait, did he say "The Year of Star Fox?" I fully admit that the statement may not actually mean anything, but for the Love of Lylat let this be true!

He might just mean "it's gonna be Star Fox's year!" in the sense that he's just really excited about making Star Fox U.

 

I would be very happy if it meant something more, though. Put Star Fox in everything! Star Fox Kart! Star Fox Party! Go all out on this! With the NFC things it might even be possible.

I hope that also means a 3DS addition to the series. It'd likely grab more attention and sales, and be a nice thing to take on the bus.

I was actually expecting the "new Star Fox" to be on the 3DS, since the 64 remake has already generally worked out the mechanics of it, I thought it might be a similar dealio with Wind Waker HD where they were using the remake to build new engines for a new game. So it's possible!

I doubt, if this is true, that this means multiple new Star Fox games. Though it could mean we'll see Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Adventures come to the Wii U VC. And possibly some Club Nintendo swag of some kind.

Of course cameos, too.

You know..just putting it out there...a Year of Star Fox event might explain why Miyamoto is so insistent that the game come out within a year...

After waiting so long I cannot deny that I have pessimistic view on the proceedings. Let's hope Nintendo proves me wrong.

I think Miyamoto is more talking about his mindset, rather than an actual marketing campaign. That said, I'm happy to see him so enthusiastic about the series.

Could it be?

 

Has the great Shiggydiggy heard the fans cry? 

 

Blessed be based Miyamoto for the comment but the translation might be harder than seems. 

 

So when do we start placing bets?

I'm gunna go with this, though I'd like a Year of Star Fox a la Year of Luigi!
