Confirmed: Star Wolf Will Return In Star Fox Zero

It’s been too long since we have seen the members of Star Wolf — at least, that is what Yusuke Hasimoto, Director of Platinum Games thinks. Specifically, in a Tweet earlier today, Hashimoto confirmed that the members of Star Wolf would be making a return to Platinum’s upcoming Wii U exclusive, Star Fox Zero.

However, who exactly is Star Wolf? Fledgling Star Fox fans may recognize Wolf O’Donnell from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. However, Star Wolf is the team of mercenaries that he leads (comprised of Leon Powalski, Panther Caroso, Andrew Oikonny, Pigma Dengar, and (possibly) Krystal) that has strong associations to the infamous Andross. Besides working as mercenaries, the dabble in other illegal and illicit activities across the solar system. So far they have appeared in four other Star Fox titles: Star Fox 64/3D, Star Fox Assault, and Star Fox Command.

Star Fox Zero will release Holiday 2015.

  1. Good. Star Wolf is a highlight of the Star Fox games. I love dog fighting them.

    1. Oh and I’m looking to buy a PS4. Anyone on here own a Wii U and PS4 who can tell me the best place and or time to buy a PS4 for the cheapest possible? I’m asking people around the internet to gauge a best option.

      I found one on Amazon for $321.99 in good condition. That, so far, is the lowest price I have found. Normally I wouldn’t be too hesitant to drop money down for a new console, but I plan on still supporting the Wii U with a few titles (Star Fox, SMT x FE, Woolly World) as well as the 3DS (new Zelda Game, Mario RPG meets Paper Mario) as well as the PS4 and that means I will be spending a lot more money than usual. I just don’t want to run too low. I’m looking for the best deals out there to maximize my purchases. As a college student, gaming has to come second unfortunately.

      1. Check out Cowboom its owned by best buy. The consoles are used just check the descriptions to see what they come with and the condition of the exterior of the system. That’s where I got an xbox one.

      2. >>>I have to agree with your last sentence, the Real Realm is taking up much time>>>

      3. I’d advise you against it. I’m planning to get one too, but many of the most anticipated titles don’t have a release date. I don’t know how much time you spend playing (or what you have already played on the Wii U, for that matter), but the Wii U 2015 releases and some other previously released titles should be enough to keep you entertained. You also have more chances to find a cheaper PS4 if you wait a bit longer, it’s still pretty new.

  2. Since when is Krystal Star Wolf..? Those alternative endings to the DS title don’t count as anyone.

  3. How much do you guys wanna bet Star Fox Zero gets delayed in a few months and pushed into 2016?

    1. The possibility has crossed my mind, but I don’t think they will. The extra hands from Platinum should help a lot. I’m hohopingt gets delayed if it means the final game will be better, though.

    2. I won’t bet against you. In fact, I won’t be surprised either if this game gets delayed for 2016 as we near the release date.

  4. This is a half-baked starfox 64 game…it better include star wolf.
    Again… I love platinum games… I’ll probably buy this game out of support of them, not Nintendo.

    1. They are probably already paid so there wont be much support. So if you buy the game itll go directly to nintendos bank. suggestion is to praise the work they put on the game and not buy it if you dont want to support nintendo

  5. Couldn’t we see a wolfen in the trailer? And Pigma appeared on a mission played by the Treehouse stuff. Hardly groundbreaking news.

  6. 1. It was posted on this website but someone found some photos online or something that showed some characters that were coming to smash
    2. On the list it was mewtwo and Lucas and wolf and one of the ice climbers
    3. Wolf is coming

    1. Wolf and an Ice Climber have pictures suggesting they’re returning to Smash?

      See if you can find that pic- I won’t believe it otherwise, it sounds too good to be true.

      1. 1. I don’t know which article it is on and I’m definitely not spending the time to look for it but you can
        2. Also that was before lucas was announced so I think it’s true and with this information this may be a hint
        3. Nintendo obviously doesn’t tell you upfront about anything except for recently about certain things but they put characters in games or show characters in directs or something to do with that characters games just like this article and then the next thing you know bam the character is here
        4. For example when I saw the blast ball I immediately looked at my bros and told them it looks like you are looking through a samus visor and the arm cannon looks familiar and then later on it was announced that that was part of a metroid game

      2. >>>If Ice Climbers are back then it would only point towards Sir Sakurai lying from the beginning so they better now>>>

        1. But Sakurai has already lied a few times before. Remember he said that there wouldn’t be any DLC characters other than Mewtwo?

          1. >>>Yes but that was an obvious lie of an lie, what I’m talking about is that he said it was “impossible” due to the difficulties on the 3DS to bring them>>>

  7. Pigma’s presence in the space level wasn’t enough of a hint towards Star Wolf’s appearance?

    1. Star Wolf appeared in four games already. Would it really be so awful if someone new was introduced?

      And four games! Of course there gonna be in the fifth.

      Ok no more need to point it out people.

  8. >>>The Metroid Prime Federation Force cancellation petition is almost at 13,000 signatures as I type this and the dislikes at Youtube is still at a solid ~90% rate>>>

    >>>If that isn’t the empire’s biggest failure in history, probably even more than the Sonyan creation, I don’t know what is>>>

  9. This was already revealed in an interview with Miyamoto way back when the game was confirmed and we can even see them in the trailer. Also I’m pretty sure Panther is gone now

  10. How I would ENJOY to see “Wolf WILL return in Smash!”
    Because if Wolf wouldn’t even be in Star Fox Zero, I call BULLSHIT.

  11. *facepalm* Of course, he’s confirmed. If people actually watched the video, they would have seen some Wolfen’s flying about.

      1. Star Fox Zero is a reimagining of Star Fox for the SNES & Star Fox 64, which was a remake of the SNES original, so Krystal most likely won’t reappear unless she appears in a cameo at some point since she doesn’t even exist at this moment in time.

  12. Iam excited that wolf is making a return he was one of the best characters and best rival of fox mccloud and that would really heat up star fox zero cant wait for it to come out trailer of the game looks so awesome

  13. this is why i voted for wolf on the smash bros ballot page hopefully he will return as dlc
