  • STAR FOX FOR WII U CONFIRMED!!!!!

    • Teaser Paragraph:

    Time Magazine published an online article that seems to have spoiled a couple of announcements!

    IT IS REALLY HAPPENING! STAR FOX IS COMING TO WII U!

    This really looks like a tech demo, meaning the game is likely very early in development.

    In his new version of Star Fox — still fundamentally a spaceship-based shooter — players now use the GamePad’s motion controls to aim and fire the Arwing’s weapons, simultaneously controlling the nimble craft itself by thumbing the joysticks to accelerate or turn and pull off signature moves like barrel rolls, loops and the tactically essential Immelman turn. And you can still morph your Arwing into a land tank, rocketing down to the surface of a planet, then rattling around the battlefield and laying waste to the landscape.

    But Miyamoto and his team have added a new vehicle mode, one that’s designed to exemplify the new motion control scheme: It lets up to two players pilot a helicopter-like craft, one player controlling the helicopter itself, the other controlling a tiny robot you can drop from a tether to roll around a limited area, either snatching up booty or blasting enemies. Leave the robot hanging as you fly around the battlefield and it becomes a kind of dangling, swingable cannon.

    I hope traditional controls are still possible, as I'm not a fan of motion controls for flying games. But this new hovership and robot idea is intriguing and has an interesting Star Fox 2 vibe.
