Earlier today it was announced on Nintendo’s Facebook page by Shigeru Miyamoto, game designer from Nintendo, that the Star Fox Zero has been pushed back to 2016. Miyamoto stated:
We have been developing Star Fox Zero for Wii U with the aim of releasing it this year. Although we felt that the development had been progressing well, we now believe that we need a little more time to work on areas such as the unprecedented discovery that we want players to experience in the game by using two screen, and further polishing the level designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes.
Nintendo had announced Star Fox Zero at E3 earlier this year with the game aiming to give players a new cinematic action experience. Miyamoto said that the decision was made last week to delay the game. Although Miyamoto indicated the game could be released, the decision was made to polish off the game. Miyamoto apologized to all who were eagerly awaiting the game this year for the delay.
Star Fox Zero will make its way to the Wii U in 2016.
