Is Star Fox Zero Flying Back onto Shelves?
It appears that the near decade-long wait for a new Star Fox game was not worth it for many gamers. According to NintendoLife.com, select Tweets from store-goers show shelves filled with pre-owned Star Fox Zero copies. Based on these, Wii U owners seem to have grown tired of the release fairly quickly.

So did we work out if that Wii U Star Fox game was any good in the end? pic.twitter.com/4UwUCdTU0u— Alex Dale (@SporadicDaler) 16 May 2016
Nintendo released Star Fox Zero on April 22 in North America. Bearing some similarities in gameplay to Star Fox 64, it was the first Star Fox main series entry since 2006's Star Fox Command for Nintendo DS. It had been over 11 years since the last home console Star Fox game: Star Fox Assault, released in February 2005.
Because of the unusually long wait, Star Fox fans have been eagerly anticipating this year's installment. Based on this small sample, it does not look great for Nintendo in terms of customer satisfaction.
