Collin van Ginkel, co-founder of Two Tribes Games and spiritual father of Toki Tori, has revealed that he would love to create a new Star Fox game for the Wii U. He believes that he would be able to create a classic Star Fox title if he was given the chance by the folks at Nintendo. Although it’s very unlikely to happen, would you want to see Two Tribes take on the Star Fox franchise?

I think we could make a damn fine Star fox game for Wii U. Yes, a classic Star fox game would be awesome to work on.

Thanks, Waseem

          • We haven’t had a good Metroid game since 2007 (2009 if you count compilations), IT CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Retro’s talent would be wasted on Star Fox.

            • I disagree; their talent would not be wasted. Although Metroid is superior to Star Fox, Star Fox is Nintendo’s next best franchise IMO.

              • It’s hard to compare Star Fox to Metroid; it is a cliché, but it is like trying to compare bananas to oranges. Both franchises have strengths and flaws. So it’s hard to determine which one is superior. Personally I prefer Star Fox, and actually I want so, so badly to play a new Star Fox game.

                  • I’d say that it is likely that we’ll have at least one title of both Star Fox Metroid for Wii U. I feel that Nintendo will need to put all their efforts on their first-party games to provide a decent game library to Wii U, since I fear that once PS4 and next Xbox reach the shelves, developers will abandon PS3, 360 and Wii U consequently. Sounds illogical if you consider the installed base of 360 and PS3, but a considerable number of developers are claiming that they won’t be able to downscale “next-gen” games to fit in “current-gen” hardware. Although we know that Wii U is technically a next-gen console, it seems that people from industry think otherwise since they divide the generations only by specs, period – which is extremely sad, indeed.

                    • I concur. The Wii U will become very dependent on it’s first party if developers claims are true and no longer work with the Xbox 360 or PS3 due to a lack of horsepower. Wii U is a next generation system because it’s hardware is based on modern architecture IMO.

    • Funny cause I’m opposite. I would like Star Fox to stay grounded. Absolutely LOVED Dinosaur Planet.(Best Star Fox game ever made 😍) and I hope they continue off of that sort of gameplay. Only a little more laser guns and a little less staffs. Maybe a mixture of both 😜

  1. It’s kind of funny to see that quite a few companies are actually willing to make Nintendo games if they just asked.

    Nintendo needs to take advantage of this. I wish some company would offer to make another Kid Icarus.

  2. BUT THEY SUCK AT MAKING GAMES and “sucking” is bot what we need for the comeback of Starfox!

    JUST LEAVE IT TO Nintendo EAD or maybe Retro!

    We all know that there is a big chance of a bad game when it gets developed by 3rd party or a studio that never made something like that *cough* Mario Party 9 *cough*

    To me Toki tori is only worth the 80c for an App AT BEST.

  3. 2 Tribes…

    I think they need to evolve into a civilization first before attending advanced weapons…

    What sort of weapons do they have besides Toki Tori?…

    I can however see them make one game released on the eShop…
    But a bigger one should be left for Nintendo supervision as minimum…

    • I know, right? It’s like, I’d like to make a Star Fox game, I’m sure everyone else here would too, but that doesn’t mean it would be good. We’ll have to see how good Toki Tori 2 is before we even consider them.

    • That’s because Nintendo promoted the most important breakthroughs in the video game history, and all of its franchises are full of novelty, fun and joy. Although recently Nintendo started to rehash some franchises – like Mario 2D, which lost most of its magic – its development team can be considered a REAL development team. Whereas some has been just improving graphics of FPS franchises, Nintendo is always looking for something new and unique. They can fail, of course, but they are not afraid of trying.

      Classic Star Fox is dated as hell, some games have Star Fox like minigames. MINIGAMES.
      The Ratchet and Clank series was full of then, but guess what, it had a main game on top of it.
      If you want a game just like 64, go play 64, dont ruin it for the rest of us wantng a game that by its design is dated as hell.

      • Dragon, did you like Star Fox Assault? That would have to be my favorite one because it didn’t stay Arwing (and Landmaster) only, you got the chance to play on foot with Star Fox, and I thought it worked really well. I have no idea why it gets a bad rap. It’s great. I agree, if the next Star Fox was Arwing only, I think I’d pass it by.

        • I really liked it.
          I have to say im not even a massive fan of 64, simply because its so short and so limited.
          Assault open things up, added more variety, more story, more character, its just a shame the game wasn’t as inspired or imaginative or polished as it could’ve been, otherwise, i thought it was really good.

          • I loved Assault
            Although, the ground missions do need some work

      • There’s alot of people who love the flying experience over the annoying land battles.

        I want the new starfox (flying style) to have a big galaxy to explore with coop friends online.

        I think you are ruining it for everyone. If you want to run around on land, then maybe you should play another game. Starfox is not meant to run around on land. It’s a space theme game and meant to fly arwing style.

        • I have nothing against Arwing segments, but seriously, its so limited that its not worth making a game over. Its like saying, “well Link to the Past is fine as it is, who needs 3D” or Mario in space? No, flat land is fine.

          The series is stuck in the past, it needs to branch out, be more than just “just do a barrel roll”, and going through straight on rail segments.
          Im not saying land should be a main focus, thats why i want Platinum to make it, because theyve made Vanquish, a very fast 3rd person shooter, it never drags on.
          Its needs diversity, because the design is just too old.

        • And just because you didnt like land segments in Assault, doesnt by default make any land segment in a future Star Fox game the same.
          Its like saying “well Other M’s story sucked, now Metroid can never have a story”. Fuck no, even i could come up with a Metroid story, long as the RIGHT DEVELOPER was making it, it could be very very good.

  4. No thanks.

    Star Fox needs a full reboot.
    I don’t care what an insane nostalgia fanboy says, if they release a Star Fox game, thats just like 64, nope, not gona be happy.

    They need head in the same direction Assault did, but make the land segments very good, and have on rail and open segments, and even very open areas where you can jump in and out of the Arwing or Landmaster ect, Star Fox cant be what it was then, in a game now.

    Then on top of that, they need to at the gery least add a 4 player co-op mode, but hopefully as well, an online mode, if anyone has played Starhawk on the PS3, you know exactly what i mean.

    Give it to Platinum Games and Hideki Kamiya.

        I’ve played both versions of Star Fox 64, (64 and 3DS), and eve though the game was fun as heck, it was very short and had almost zero replay value.
        It’s as you say, it needs to dare more, go to new heights. I’ve never played the Assault one, but I really liked what I saw. If they just managed to make the land sections brilliant, the game would be awesome…

          • Mmm, no.
            If they were going to “reinvent the FPS”, do it with a new IP, Star Fox has its core design, its characters, a FPS just doesnt fit well, FPS games arent designed to be fast, it would end up barely being recognisable, so it might as well be a new IP.
            Plus, a new IP allows them to do whatever the hell they want, where as if they just made a Star Fox FPS, theyre stuck in the Star Fox universe and mythos.

            • Well seeing as neither of us can really do anything about what happens to the Star Fox franchise we’ll just have to leave it at that. You don’t want it to become something new(like me) you would rather it stick to “core values.” Only, Nintendo is the one who decides what happens. I believe it could very well become a FPS.

  10. I like what Namco tried with Assault, but it wasn’t perfect.
    I’m still trying to figure out why your only choice of ships is the Arwing. -___-
    To whoever is making the next one, please add:
    .More ships & customization. Give vehicles a sense of speed!
    .10+ hour campaign with variety in gameplay.
    .No on-rails parts.
    .Different blaster and close combat weapons.
    .Andross… is lame. You do not have to put Andross in the game.
    .Huge random space battles with rivals and side-quests!
