E3 2014: What We Know About Star Fox for Wii U 2015

Star Fox is confirmed and coming to Wii U in 2015.

At the closing of Nintendo’s Digital Event for E3, we got to see Shigeru Miyamoto, General Manger of Nintendo EAD (Entertainment Analysis and Development) playing a game on Wii U. One might assume, based off the trailers that debuted, that Miyamoto was playing the upcoming The Legend of Zelda. Not so, my friends. Turns out, Miyamoto was playing the upcoming Star Fox game for Wii U.

In an interview with Miyamoto for TIME, the director for the game said development for the game has been ongoing for years. Experiments were conducted on the Wii, but Nintendo did not feel the console was a good fit for this scrolling shooter. After about 6 to 10 months of experimenting with the Wii U, Nintendo has developed ideas for the game. This untitled Star Fox game will release in 2015.

Features to Expect

Nintendo makes use of the gamepad joystick and motion control features. The gamepad will be a view as if players are in the cockpit. They will steer the Arwing using the joystick. Enemies ahead? Just aim with the gamepad itself and the game targets the enemy. The television will show a wide view from behind the vehicle or aircraft. A simple press of a button switches vehicles. Other vehicles include a Landmaster tank and a helicopter.
