TIME Leaks Three Miyamoto Projects Including Star Fox Wii U

starfox_wii_u

TIME magazine has published an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto earlier than they should have. The interview reveals that Miyamoto is working on three Wii U titles including the mighty Star Fox. Here’s what Mr Miyamoto has been working on.

In one of the games, which Miyamoto called Project Giant Robot, players control sky-scraping automatons, angling the Wii U GamePad in front of a TV screen while shifting their torsos left and right or up and down to maneuver the robot’s upper-body while thumbing the controller’s joysticks to punch or grab — almost like a full-body game of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots. The GamePad shows you what the robot sees, while the TV screen offers a zoomed-back view, letting onlookers — as well as you — admire your tromping, pummeling handiwork.

In another, titled Project Guard, the GamePad became a quick-jump map of a fortress manned by numbered, laser-firing security cameras. As robots encroach on different entry points, you have to tap the GamePad to leap from camera to camera, blasting enemies that trundle or come at you sprinting — even some that sneak under your radar. All the while, onlookers can shout out the numbers that correspond to robot-threatened camera feeds, turning your defense operations into a frenetic, heart-racing, tap-and-fire scramble.

A game Nintendo fans have been waiting for a very long time to see: Star Fox is back, only reimagined on the Wii U using Miyamoto’s new GamePad-based controls — controls that’ll ask of players things they’ve never had to do before in a video game. Whether they’ll come willing or balk remains to be seen, but Miyamoto is convinced he’s on to a control scheme that’s not only novel, but with practice, indispensable.

  3. WOOO!!! Miyamoto is a game design beast!!!! Three projects at once at his age of 61! That’s really impressive. If there is one man that we can ever make immortal, I hope it’s Shigeru Miyamoto.

  6. I knew this would happen and that Miyamoto would handle Star Fox soon as it was revealed that Kamiya had something different planned in the form of an Xbone exclusive. I’ll still get the later console soon just for that game.

  7. The 1st person viewpoint using the Gamepad & the 3rd person viewpoint using the TV better be used for Metroid for Wii U if there ever is one. I don’t want a solely 1st person Metroid ever again even though Metroid Prime Trilogy was awesomely spectacular. And yay! Star Fox U! And I can’t wait to see more from that robot game from Miyamoto.
