With E3 having gone by and no mention of Star Fox: Grand Prix what does everyone think the next game will be like? Will there even be a next game?
We all know about the Arwing in Starlink, but aside from that, was Grand Prix just a rumor? And what will become of the franchise as a whole?
Im kinda surprised that there's few topics on Zero being made. I mean Zero's been out for a while & its the same old people with few topics on Zero, let alone interesting ones. It looks like a clear sign that the game barley had any sufficient content to talk about.
Anyways, according to a video game analyst, Zero was not profitable at all & hasn't sold 500,000 worldwide. https://mynintendonews.com/2016/06/02/zhugeex-says-that-star-fox-zero-was-not-profitable-at-all/
I doubt it'll be the last Star Fox game but I do hope Nintendo learns their lesson; Dont force the player to change views with motion controls & having empty/dull all-range levels with a horrible rewarding system doesn't work in 2016 especially if it's going at $60.

In the midst of all the hype surrounding Star Fox Zero, Culture Shock, Gaijin Goombah's show on The Game Theorists channel, just released a new episode talking about what could be influences on the designs for various Star Fox characters. Stuff that even Shigeru Miyamoto probably did not share with the public, or is probably not even aware of consciously. Keep in mind, this video is conjecture, but it brings up very valid points regarding the Japanese influences on the series in one form or another. Check out the episode below and learn how Star Fox characters could actually be based on the earliest forms of Japanese manga:

Star Fox 64 is now available on the Nintendo eShop as a Wii U Virtual Console title! Nintendo of Europe released the game on March 24, 2016 for a promotional price of only €4.99 / £4.49 until April 21, 2016, one day before the expected release of Star Fox Zero; the price will afterwards revert to the standard Nintendo 64 Virtual Console game price of €9.99 / £8.99, so you better hurry and take advantage of this offer!
Nintendo of America have made no announcements at the time this thread was posted.
NOTICE: For the first time ever, Europeans can play the U.S. version of Star Fox 64 at its glorious full 60 Hz! Additionally, if you previously purchased Lylat Wars from the Wii Shop Channel on or transferred to the same Wii U console, you can get the Nintendo eShop re-release at only a fraction of the price as any other Nintendo 64 title, despite it being the U.S. version with the proper "Star Fox 64" moniker.
