Known for his forthcoming nature, Hideki Kamiya says he no longer wishes to work on Star Fox. Back in June (and again in August), the Wonderful 101 director expressed his interest in working on a new Star Fox game if Nintendo approached him, but it seems like Kamiya has had a change of heart. In a recent interview with Polygon, Kamiya has seemingly given up on Star Fox due to the “tendency for this to spread” within the media.
“I’ve been known for saying I want to work on Star Fox, but the tendency for this to spread and people constantly pestering me with questions, like ‘How would you do this? How would you do that?’ … Quite frankly, I’ve decided I don’t want to work on Star Fox anymore.”
However, when asked about one of Platinum Games’ characters – Bayonetta, for example – appearing in the Super Smash Bros. character roster Kamiya said he’d be “extremely honoured”. Let us know what you think of his statements in the comments below.
“Even if there’s been discussion between me and Mr. Sakurai, obviously it’s something I wouldn’t be able to talk about, but I’m a Nintendo fan at heart. Even creating games with the Nintendo logo on them is really impactful for me. So if there was ever the opportunity to feature one of my characters in a Nintendo game, obviously I would be extremely honored.”
