Star Fox Zero delayed until early 2016, Nintendo's holiday lineup suffers

This comes as a huge blow to Nintendo's already sparse fall and holiday lineup for Wii U, which is now headlined by Yoshi's Woolly World and Xenoblade Chronicles X.

This move is aimed at polishing the game, and assuring that the Star Fox franchise's quality is maintained. The problem for Nintendo is that despite Super Mario Maker's success, gamers may become restless come November.

    I'm not all too surprised. Nintendo has a tendency to delay their bigger titles. I've come to expect it.
