Star Fox Wii U

It seems someone over at TIME Magazine let slip some vital information regarding some of Nintendo’s secret E3 2014 games. One of those games being a brand new Star Fox for Wii U.

The new entry into the Lylat Wars series is being developed by Nintendo’s very own Shigeru Miyamoto, and will utilise the Gamepad in some very interesting ways. TIME Magazine states that:

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.

TIME Magazine also pointed out that you’ll now be to use a new helicopter style vehicle, which allows for up to 2-players working together. Could this be hinting at some possible co-operative play in the main game? Expect to see more information, and video footage, on the new Star Fox during Nintendo’s upcoming Digital Event.

About David Rawlings

David Rawlings, or ‘Rawky’ as we like to call him, joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign at the beginning. He’s British and found solace with us as he was able to understand our pain about Nintendo and their localizing faux pas. He’s a big fan of the letter ‘U’ and refuses to remove them from words, even though we constantly ask him to. He also believes it’s about time Princess Daisy got kidnapped.
