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.
Star Wolf WILL return in StarFox 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.
