You may remember from E3 last year that Shigeru Miyamoto was working on two games for the Wii U, Project Guard and Project Giant Robot, and we got to see a little bit of them very early in their development. So, where were they during this E3? Well, apparently Project Guard is still alive and will be connected to the Star Fox Zero universe. Miyamoto says that it is to be played online and they’re still trying to figure out the ins and outs of releasing it along with Star Fox Zero. Maybe it will be some sort of DLC? However, his other project, Project Robo, is apparently on hold for now.
One of Miyamoto’s E3 2014 experiments, Project Guard—a Wii U game about protecting a base from invaders using security cameras and turrets—is still in the works and still tied to the Star Fox universe. (The photo above is from last year.) Hayashi is overseeing it, also with the help of Platinum. Miyamoto said it is meant to be played online and that Nintendo is still figuring out if or how to release it in conjunction with Star Fox Zero. Development of Giant Robo, another, less impressive E3 2014 experimental game is on hold.
