Here’s Some Gorgeous Star Fox Zero Character Art

star_fox_zero_cast

Nintendo has released some character art for the long-awaited Star Fox Zero which is under development from Platinum Games. This is the first Star Fox video game we’ve had in a long time, so it’s great to see how Nintendo and Platinum envision how characters such a Fox, Slippy, Falco and Peppy look in 2015. Star Fox Zero is due out on the Wii U towards the end of the year.

        1. Do you think Miyamoto will allow multiplayer and voice chat in Star Fox?

          Platinum better find more adequate partners next time. Nintendo is afraid of future.

          1. They are too stubborn to listen to their fans. And now they are on thin ice. Its 2015, And they still don’t know how to use the gamepad? I pity them.

                1. I think he’s referring to the gamepad being used as a gun turret, but yeah, Nintendo is the worst when it came to gamepad use. Ubi, EA and prettty much everyone has made better use (not counting off screen play)

                  Mario Kart’s use of the gamepad SUCKED.

                  I am looking forward to Starfox’s coop use of the gamepad. I think it will be a blast and is brilliant.

              1. Your definition of “troll” precludes you of realizing that the troll here is no one else than you.

                Keep exposing yourself.

            1. Don’t bother. He’s one of those people that thinks sales for Nintendo=always great while sales for 3rd party games=rarely good. He doesn’t realize how much of a fanboy that makes him sound.

              1. Lol Ridley and root gamer my boys always know what’s up when dealing with these fanboys and how blind they are. Splatoon was bought almost entirely by fanboys desperate to prove the game is amazing.

    1. Splatoon is Third Person. I think the First Person for Starfox Zero is done on the Gamepad, while the T.V displays a Third Person view.

      1. 3 Years an they finally implementing use for the game pad? Game over Nintendo. And no voice chat? This game is going to suck.

          1. You can do that with the PS4, even if everyone is playing different games. It’s more convenient.

        1. Nintendo has been always clueless about what to do the atrocious gamepad. Hope they keep that piece of sh*t six feet under.

          1. The Wii U has been on life support since its entire existence. They need to hurry up and pull the plug because they are “supporting” a dead console. Maybe next time they will make a console and controllers for actual gamers.

              1. Lol troll ass fanboy can’t see Wii u sales are trash even with lifts from smash kart and shitoon.

            1. As much as I like the Gamepad, I agree. It should be an optional controller next time. Time to bring back the awesome Gamecube controller & improve on that.

              1. Honestly I thought the gamepad was going to be amazing. Basically I thought it would’ve been like the NX and how it would be a blend between home console and handheld. I say Nintendo should take a break with the gamepad idea until they are really sure wuth what they can do with it?

          2. Exactly! The game pad is a complete gimmick. NOTHING about it is innovative, “surprises gamers” (by its’ shittyness lol) or significantly changes up gaming. It’s a useless iPad clone and only drones will defend.

            1. Yes, only fanboys are blind and stupid enough to praise that sh*t.

              C’mon, we are in 2015, and that horrid controler has a sub-HD resistive touchscreen… What a joke!

              1. Off-screen play is amazing, and I use it all the time.
                I would concede that it should be optional, but nothing streams as flawlessly as the gamepad does, and being able to console-game without a TV is fucking awesome.

                1. I really don’t get the idea of playing a home console in a mini, sub HD screen.

                  An OTG adapter with a regular processor would suffice to stream the gameplay content to any tablet.

                  How many tablets do you have at your place today?

                  1. Maybe, but noone has bothered to do it. Tablet and Vita streaming are just not as good…and maybe it’s just a lack of effort.

                    I don’t always have access to my TV, and sometimes I like to play at the gym while on an ellyptical, one time I played at the airport. Sometimes I’ll play AC4 and plunder ships while in bed.

                    It depends on your lifestyle. I use the gamepad 85% of the time, there’s nothing wrong with Nintendo having mastered flawless streaming.
                    Yes. They should have put more muscle under the hood.
                    Yes. Maybe it should have been optional.

                    But I will debate to the ends of the earth that the gamepad’s existance is evil. The gamepad is awesome for those that use it like I do. It just shouldn’t have been the only thing going for the WiiU. It should have also been on par with the PS4 and allowed the Pro-controller as a menu-control option.

                    1. You earned my respect, sir. Well stated line of thought and I acknowledge that the off-TV feature is interesting.

                      But what bothers me the most is really no one thinking about bringing the stream to a tablet — as you also mentioned. Heck, almost every house which has a Wii U has a tablet or even more than one. Bundling the console with the pro controller would reduce the costs and developing adapter to turn a tablet into a second screen would be awesome.

                    2. My phone wouldn’t let me reply directly to your response. Ugh

                      So, I don’t particularly think developing an app for tablet streaming is a bad Idea, but they would need to make sure it works with Android, iOS and Windows. And everytime there is an OS update, people’s tablets wouldn’t work until Nintendo updated their app (usually). There is No way Nintendo would commit to long-term support for such a thing, and with as many variations there are to Android, and people using different levels of iOS firmware…it could end up being a nightmare…which might be why we haven’t seen it yet.

                      Plus, I like gaming with analog buttons. :]

                      The gamepad was the only fool-proof way to make “tablet streaming” work. Again, maybe it should have been optional, but all other options would have been a bitch to execute.

                      And thank you! :] Just a straight shooting Nintendo fan here!

                    1. Some paradigms need to be broken in order to keep the business.

                      Which is better: to lose money or to adequate themselves to 2012 reality?

                      Silly pride needs to come to an end.

                    2. I agree BUT They’re not losing money. It’s like the ‘go third party’ argument. They have the power/money to say no. (Thanks to 3DS in this generation)

                2. Off tv play is nice but honestly it’s only use is when you don’t have access to a TV. I always do. So it’s useless. And anything on a console that relates to handheld playing doesn’t do it for me. I hate handheld it hurts your neck and the screen is too small. And the gamepad and 3ds are both quite uncomfortable for hands for extended play. Off tv is a bonus feature nothing more, not even close to an actual selling point if that’s all it does honestly.

                  1. Same here but I watch wrestling on Mondays & Thursdays so the Gamepad is nice to have when I want to watch that while still playing video games. ESPECIALLY when a match I don’t care for occurs or someone I don’t like is running their fucking mouth for more than 10-15 minutes because they aren’t very captivating when on the mic.

                    1. Well I mean same here in regards to having full control over my television.

              2. >>>I like the Gamepad and I don’t think it’s useless at all, however, I think it’s used horribly and in doing so unjustifies the price it costs>>>

                  1. >>>You have no valid arguments at all regarding the gamepad, get lost doggy, shoo shoo>>>

                    1. >>>You’ve said that since the earlier days, try again Scooby>>>

                    2. >>>I’m sorry, my data does not process a pile of doggy disposable waste>>>

                    3. >>>It can’t be found because it wasn’t a joke, I never joke and I don’t know how to>>>

                    4. >>>I don’t know who to listen to, since your heads are all over the place Cerberus>>>

                    5. I’m not going to lie, you got jokes Mr. Calling me a sniffing bitch was the funniest insult I’ve ever heard from you. But don’t try that shit with me, I was only being nice.

                      Thanks!

                    6. Good. I’m liking this. I never knew you had that in you. But of course you’ve been “>>>Observing>>>” me. Should’ve known…

                    7. >>>Darkness is unlimited, I think we both know that Achoobliss>>>

                1. You, Tetris Quadradus XP robot, saying something bad on Nintendo…

                  This is the end of the world… XD

                  That being said, I agree completely.

            2. To me, the gamepad is nothing more then a botton half of a broken 3DS. Its uncomfortable to hold and three damn screen is distracting and it takes away from the experience. Hell, Sony is doing a better job with the off TV shit due to the vita. And the best part about that is, its OPTIONAL.

              1. Fanboys say that the grip is perfect and does not feel awkward in their hands.

                Hahahaha, fanboys are so amusing! Keep making me laugh!

                1. My 6 year old loves it, pretty sure they care more about what kids think than hard core gamers, who they are not marketing too.

                  1. To them, casuals is where the money is. I mean who could blame them, look at the Wii. However if they thought they could pull that crap again with the Wii U was a HUGE mistake.

                  2. You have proven all the points Nintendo fans at heart have been saying over 2 and a half years: nowadays, Nintendo caters casuals and fanboys only.

                    1. I’m honestly starting to wonder if all of these fanboys are just a few of the casuals that jumped on the Nintendo bandwagon during the Wii & unfortunately stayed with Nintendo. :/

                  3. Your six year old ain’t old enough to know what’s comfortable or not and quite frankly don’t ever bring up your six year old or any other in a Nintendo argument.

                2. Lmao! The gampad is equivalent to holding a flat brick. These fanboys are ridiculous its hilarious!

                  1. I get really pissed off when I try to use the pro controller and the game does not allow me to do so…

                    F*ckin’ bastards!

                    1. They should have improved the pro controller and made it the Wii U’s main controller. While the gamepad would be an add-on. Remember when they said the Wii U will support 2 gamepads at once? Lmao they were full of it!

                    2. That was just one of Nintendo’s many lies to keep people from realizing Nintendo was using it as an excuse to not make thousands of Gamepads & put them up for sale at stores from the very beginning. It’s just another form of control by Nintendo, forcing us to have to call them up & get the Gamepad fixed. And when we actually have to pay to have it fixed, Nintendo gets 100% of the profit. So now only do they get to control us with this plan but they get to feed their greed in the fucking process.

                    3. Fuck! Missed a word!

                      So now not only do they get to control us* Fixed. Like Miiverse, WordPress needs to add a damn edit button that allows the poster/commenter to edit their own comment.

                    4. Yea gamepad is trash I tried liking it for a while and then went back to a real controller and tried it again and realized I was in denial lol. It’s way too uncomfortable and the fact they had to remodel it last minute TELLS you they didn’t even consider comfortability when they made it. But let the fanboys think it’s great, there aren’t enough fanboys to keep Nintendo going as Wii u sales have shown. We will have our Nintendo back and these young casual fanboys will have burn!

                    5. I’m a Wii U owner & hate what Nintendo is doing with ignoring the majority but yeah. There really aren’t enough fanboys to keep Nintendo going down this bullshit road as the Wii U’s sales have actually shown.

              2. Three screens what on earth are you talking about? I know you don’t feed the trolls but you are so incredibly stupid you have broken the scale measure stupidity.

                1. I’m here to fuck with fanboys’ souls
                  My heart is cold
                  Probably cause I’m from the snow
                  I am a troll
                  That’s just the type of shit you gotta know
                  I’m on a roll
                  I know you want to see me go
                  But hell no

                  Does that answer your question?

              3. The gamepad screen is larger than the Vita screen. If I’m going to off-screen play, I like the large screen set in the middle of a pro-controler…the Vita is just too damn small for off screen…that’s why noone uses it practically.

            3. Gosh you guys are weird. The gamepad was one of the MAIN REASONS I bought the Wii U. I LOVE the gamepad and the way it’s used. Nintendo doesn’t need to be used in some kinda crazy wacky way, the best way to use the gamepad is the option of gyro controls, and a map or something like that on the screen. But you know what I was gonna say more but why waste my time? You guys are just sitting at your computers waiting for someone like me to come and comment so that you can continue to troll.

              1. Cocaine is one hell of a drug. It makes you do crazy things, like buying the Wii U for the gamepad.

                1. See just a bunch of trolls, who are annoyed about or thing or another (probably something Nintendo did) and are now trolling this site to make them feel better, and telling everyone who disagrees with anything they say that the must be stuipid and on drugs. Pathetic.

                  1. Not trolls. Just Nintendo fans that are tired of being ignored by Nintendo because the company would rather chase the money, giving in to their greed, than actually listen to us.

                    1. Yup lol and the dumb fucks don’t realize if they listened to US, the REAL fans, they would be making way MORE money. But let them cater to casuals and fanboys so they can continue to show their true colors.

                  2. Don’t dare talk about drugs when you know nothing of them first off you uniformed high school fuck, second off, you’re a fanboy, we ain’t trolls. The gamepad is a big clunky mess clearly not shaped for hands. You can deny it all you want but you’re a fanboy and severely outnumbered.

              2. Sooo…the game pad’s appealing to you because of some map features and gyro controls…and no, if Nintendo is focusing the ENTIRE console on the game pad, then it HAS to be used in “some kind of crazy wacky way” (aka game changing)!

                1. Except that when it is you complain, and when it isn’t you complain, and even when they give you the option to use a different controller you complain about things that the gamepad is doing. It’s because you guys just complain to complain because you find some kind of sick twisted enjoyment out of it.

                  1. Shut up Batman! You’ve been hitting the beer once again haven’t you? Don’t worry-I’ll call robin to clean this…mess up.

                    Robin:”have you forgotten that the complainers you listed are likely completely different people. You’re just merging them into one.

                    1. Sorry that was a bit unfair of me, I wasn’t really replying dirrectly to you just more of everyone on this comment stream. I’m sorry if I though you were a troll when your not.

              3. Fanboy alert! Dude gamepad is trash unless you suck at games like smash you wouldn’t know the difference though…

              1. That guy’s comment was kinds disturbing because it reveals waaay to much about what the that person is into ._.

  1. While Capcom uses zero to represent a prequel, ala Resident Evil 0, Nintendo uses zero to represent a remake, ala Metroid: Zero Mission. With that said, I wish just this once Nintendo would have used zero in the same fashion that Capcom used it. This makes the 2nd reboot for Star Fox. Like Metroid, it seems Nintendo just doesn’t know how to move forward with the franchise as they hit a road block.

    1. It’s not a remake, though. Not a prequel, not a sequel, just a new Star Fox game. And it combines elements from several Star Fox games, including the cancelled Star Fox 2. I’d say it’s just a re-imagining of Star Fox in general.

      1. Nintendo reps themselves said this game was a reboot- that Star Fox is starting over again plot-wise. Xeno is right. This makes the second time SF has been rebooted, and personally I wanted a sequel. I wanted to see how the hell things could have progressed past Command like which ending was canon.

      2. *facepalm* You just literally described what a remake is: it’s not a prequel, it’s not a sequel, and is a re-imagining of Star Fox. That’s pretty much what remake means. Nintendo is always twisting the difference between a remake & a remaster. Or maybe like the word new, the Japanese think of the term remake vastly different from how the rest of the world sees it.

      1. Yeah, I take that back. You have a good point, sir. It’s been looking pretty half-assed and rushed.

        1. Agreed. Even on the Nintendo Digital Event video on the eShop, where the quality is fucking great, Star Fox Zero did not look very good quality wise. The graphics were fine but the quality was just bad.

      1. Dude! Don’t be insulting the N64’s capabilities bro! You seriously don’t think this game was built for anything other than the fucking NES?

        1. I don’t know what I was thinking when I said that. Obviously the N64 had games with better visuals!

            1. Young but I’m getting every single motherfucking thing
              I’m old, you gotta know
              I’m here to fuck with fanboys’ souls, my heart is cold
              It’s prolly cause I’m from the snow, with all my woes
              I know they wanna see me go, I’m on a roll
              I mean I’m back on this again, I’m here again
              You know the truth, this not pretend, I’m not your friend
              Not your guy, I’m not your buddy, show no lovin’
              I might go DeMarcus Cousins out in public
              I mean I’m back on this again, I’m here again

              OK I’m done.

          1. Nintendo is trying to please it’s’ fans…with Atari-level graphics lmao! When will the majority of the nintoddlers wake up and face the facts…that daddy Nintendo is getting BRUTALY raped by pretty much everyone in the industry!

            1. The sad part is that out of the big 3, Nintendo is the only one that focuses mainly on games and they can’t even make a decent console for actual gamers. They might as well compete with leap frog since both have the same audience lmao!

  2. Why do people demand Voice Chat during gameplay so much? Most of the time it’s just used to give away and/or receive insults about your mom! Honestly, I ALWAYS turn off voice chat on games that have it enabled. Plus, remember that the characters’ positions, enemy positions and all the movements are being sent back and forth between all the players, voice chat would only add more information to be added to the stream when that bandwidth could be used to increase gaming performance.

    Of course it also depends on your internet quality (mine sucks at Guatemala), but still, even with a good connection, I’d rather listen to the characters, sound effects and music instead of a 12 year old saying how I’m a noob and talking about my mom.

    For me, voice chat adds nothing to the gaming experience, but that’s just my opinion.

    For me, voice chat adds nothing to the gaming experience, but that’s just my opinion.

      1. No, of course not everyone is. I understand how my comment could be read that way, but I just don’t like hearing other people talk over during the game, in my personal experience it adds nothing to the game. And really man, there was no need for an insult.

        1. I apologize for the insult. I just assumed you were a fanboys because this site has a LOT of them. I understand where you’re coming from. As for me and others, voice chat adds to the experience because you can communicate with friends about what team tactics to use or just have a good time. When I use voice chat on my PS4 with my friends, I always have fun :)

          1. I agree. There are tons around here. I love Nintendo, but I’m not against playing on a PS (saving for my PS4) or a PC, don’t really like Xbox except for a few games here and there. For tactics, yeah, I can see how that can help, specially on games like CoD or Splinter Cell, both of which I have. I guess my experience hasn’t been so good mostly because of my internet connection in my country, but yeah, I can see how it could help out.

    1. Good for you-you don’t care about voicechat. Now, what about those that DO care…should they not at least have that option? I mean, this is 2015, is it not?

      1. Yeah, that could be an option like many others have done in other games. Like I said, I just don’t like it personally, so I switch it off. But you could also think about the technical issues, honestly, I love Nintendo, but their hardware is just not that powerful, so I wonder how much of that communication it could actually handle, like I said on my original comment, bandwidth is consumed on sending the audio of the chat in addition to the game information. But yeah, an optional voice chat should be available if the hardware can handle it.

        1. Then it’s nintendo’s fault for making such a weak system if the Wii u truly can’t handle voicechat!

  4. Aw…the widdel ninbabies are shitting their diapers over how awful this piece of shit game looks. Maybe…you’ll wake up and see reality…that Nintendo is fucking dogshit and Sony+Microsoft are fucking raping Nintendo XD

    #PoorWiddleNinbabiesXD

    1. Nintendo is sucking for sure but the others ain’t doing anything impressive either you’re a fanboy of them just like the fanboys of Nintendo lol loser

  5. Has anyone heard of ‘Watamote’? It’s an anime about some high school girl who’s a total loser and desperately tries to be popular. Well…what if the main character was actually Iwata and he just had a bad sex change XD they should call it ‘Iwatamote’ lmao!

    1. I would’ve laughed at your comment if it weren’t for the fact that Iwata is dead… :(

                1. Waifu? Kill yourself. Anyone who uses that term or HAS a “Waifu” is an embarrassment to nerds/gamers/anime fans everywhere. I wanna marry a cartoon!!! And you’re all invited!!! Yay!!!

                  1. Whoa! Look at you! Telling people to kill themselves and that they’re an embarrassment! Everyone should all aspire to be like you when they grow up! You’re so cool and edgy. :)

                    1. There are a few cool anons on MyNintendoNews but sadly they get drowned out by all of the loser anons that actually tell people to kill themselves. But I’d be lying if I denied I sometimes want to just snap & say “go fucking die” at times. ESPECIALLY when they continue to be total douchebags. That eminem123! idiot comes to mind. If you aren’t going to do anything to contribute positively to the world & just attack everyone, you are indeed a waste of space on this earth & should have been the cum your mother swallowed.

                      (Sorry if you might be eating by the time you read this. lol)

                    2. It happened a third time earlier today when I was eating a hot dog. -.- This site is not safe to read and eat!

  6. I hope nx has a gamepad I don’t want another console with out it and seeing this is nintendos 3rd time using 2 screens since 2004 I’m sure nx will have one

  7. Now the thing I’m worried about is the fact that Miyamoto is giving a controversial character like Slippy a bigger role in this game. Hopefully the extra screentime he get works in a way where he doesn’t simply drag down the plot with more escort missions and his obnoxious voice.

    1. Dude Slippy was annoying as hell in 64 but everyone loved hating him he’s part of the team like it or not.

    1. <.< Are you just talking about the actual trolls or are you including those of us that are rightfully criticizing Nintendo for making mistakes?

      1. He’s talking about us, he thinks we are trolls cause we won’t fanboys like him. I’ve dealt with him he’s fanboy status for sure.

        1. I’ve dealt with him too. So I’m probably wasting my time asking since he’s answer will probably be yes. I bet I’m on someone’s “list of trolls” list at this point since I’ve been pretty vocal these days about my disdain for Nintendo’s bullshit.
