During all the hustle and bustle of TGS 2015 came a bit of disappointing news for fans awaiting the long-overdue return of Fox McCloud and crew in Star Fox Zero. In a message from legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto on the Nintendo Wii U Facebook page, the game is supposedly all but complete, but extra time is needed to polish the game a bit more.
In the message Miyamoto states “we now believe that we will 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 screens, and further polishing the level designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes.” Star Fox Zero was originally slated to come out this November, but now has a release window of Q1 2016.
While it is disappointing to see Star Fox Zero delayed, it is somewhat comforting to know the developers would rather have the game release in the best state possible, rather than release an unpolished experience just in time for the holiday season. Hopefully, Star Fox Zero is worth the extra few months wait.
