Nintendo Delays Star Fox Zero For Wii U To 2016

The Wii U console’s 2015 library of upcoming games just got smaller. Nintendo has confirmed that Star Fox Zero won’t be released this year as originally planned. It is now scheduled to launch during the first quarter of 2016, but specific details have yet to be announced. The decision to delay the game was made by Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto, who shared the following message via Nintendo’s official Facebook page:

I made a big decision last week.

We have been developing Star Fox Zero for Wii U with the aim of releasing it this year. Although we felt that the development had been progressing well, we now believe that we will need a little more time to work on areas such as the unprecedented discovery that we want players to experience in the game by using two screens, and further polishing the level designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes. While we have already reached the stage where it would be technically possible to release the title in time for the year-end holiday season, we want to polish the game a bit more so that players will be able to more smoothly grasp the new style of play that we are proposing.

To the people looking forward to the launch of the game this holiday season, I am very sorry.

Star Fox Zero is going to bring new game play and experiences that take it far beyond the framework established by Star Fox 64. All the members of the development team are doing our best so that the final product will not betray your expectations. And the game will not be delayed for a very long time – we’re aiming to launch the game in Q1 2016. Please stay tuned for further announcements.

      1. That’s what I’m hoping. I want this game to be awesome. And from the internet buzz it’s been getting, expectations were not exactly awesome. So hopefully they make this game what it is. No disrespect meant, but I believe this is where Iwata would come in and say “Please understand.” Haha. What a catchphrase. Oh well. RIP.

      2. And watch when this game is pushed back and still looks and plays exactly the same as of now. Ya gonna be even more disappointed than ever unless you’re still that delusional to believe Nintendo still cares about its “fans” that almost no longer exists and in its place is a group of fools.

      4. Console isn’t “awesome” as on “hyped” game is delayed?

        Suppose, for example, the PS3 is not “awesome” because The Last Guardian (a very “hyped” game) was delayed for the best part of a decade. Or any console, ever, that’s had a game delayed?

        And you have the nerve to call others names? Dear me.

      5. We’ve had conversations before where I was very critical of Nintendo. We share the same attitude toward Nintendo. Why would you think I am delusional or any of the sort. All I said is I hope this game turns out good. I have this and Zelda left. After them, I might not be playing video games anymore. Mainly because I have lost faith in Nintendo and felt betrayal over the years. I want this game to turn out well, but I’m not delusional about Nintendo by any means.

    1. Same here. I was hoping it was a typo but no it’s for real and I’d be lying if I said I’m wasn’t disappointed. Well, at least now they have the time to polish up the game and maybe add an online multiplayer mode to satisfy these people who were constantly crying and bitching about it.

      1. honestly a starfox with online is just as needed as level sharing in Mario maker and online in spaltoon. plus starfox offers several vehicles which could mean tank battles, ship battles, drone battles, exe. or even mixed team battles (king of the hill) yea starfox needs online. but overall I’m glad the game is getting extra attention, I rather hear its being delayed a few months rather then not coming.

      1. I could see them finalizing on NX hardware already and working on new games for it. I wouldn’t be surprised if star fox and Zelda are being made to be on those systems. but they would be either enhanced versions of the wii U games or just ports. I dont see them canceling on wii U. simply because NX has not a single unit out and just about everyone who bought a wii has bin waiting for Mario kart, smash, …..and of course Zelda and starfox. so its pretty much a given that wii U owners are going to go out and get them. it would make no sense to just sell them on a new system with no customers yet. again I could see ports or enhanced additions as launch tittles for the NX but they would be games already on Wii U

      1. No offense, but Nintendo doesn’t know what project management means. If I hit my deadlines like Nintendo hits theirs, I’d be fired.

        Do you think that means I can do a shitty job unless they give me more time? No. Absolutely nothing against you, your comment triggered my rant, but is certainly not the target.

        I know Video game programming isn’t quite the same as online marketing and ecommerce, but they really need to learn what I learned about car repairs…if I think it will take me two hours, it will take me 4.

        Year after year after year after year… Should we be used to it? Meh. Maybe. But they should take ownership for sucking hard at project management.

        He said he was sorry, it was a hard decision, and I Agree, this is a game that could benefit from a delay, I’m glad he made that decision, but goddamn if those motherfuckers are not the masters of delay and disappointment.

        The Only other possibility is they release both Home/Portable versions at the same time that could also point towards 20 million shipped in 1st year but hey lets wait and see oh heres Iwata clearly stating there will be 2 different consoles and lots more…

Splatoon, XCX and DT didn’t click me as well and I don’t have plans to get them in the near future.

        This year the other consoles have been keeping me busy. Besides Mario Maker, right now I’m playing MGS V, and as soon as it releases, The Rise of The Tomb Raider, Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront.

  15. Based on the late footage, it was obvious that the game was hardly ready for launch this year. Only fanboys were unable to see it.

    While this delay may bring hope for a better overall gameplay — the title looks bland and boring — their efforts to use the gamepad to a greater extent shows not only Nintendo is adrift, but also that they can mess the playability big time. The gamepad is an atrocity and f*cked the Wii U technically speaking in 90% of the time.

    I’ve said this already: Nintendo should have invested in the pro-controller, and should have developed an app for android and ios which could stream the screen content to any tablet, a gadget that almost any household has nowadays.

        It worked great for Zombie U (People enjoyed the clever gamepad functions. They really hated it’s low res graphics) & RAYMAN was excellent. But I especially like NINTENDOS approach to HYRULE WARRIORS. The gamepad was an overall map & a good menu guide….THAT’S IT!!

        STAR FOX ZERO needs more of the HYRULE WARRIORS gamepad treatment instead of RAYMAN LEGENDS approach. Because if there’s any part that needs to be improved is adding online (which they are…THANK GOD!) & the Grsphics!!

      3. Yeah, off-TV play is interesting as well. Ideally the screen could have higher pixel density than its 158 ppi — but I know it would imply in higher costs and higher MSRP. Just for the sake of comparison, average smartphones and tablets have around 450-500 ppi of pixel density. But even off-TV play could be achieved using a tablet, it Nintendo had developed an app to stream the content (either wirelessly, or through an OTG-like cable).

First I was excited about it, but some pals from Europe have addressed some concerns about the game, like (i) there is absolutely nothing new on it, and (ii) the gameplay is way repetitive and not challenging. I’ll put htis on hold, though, once I usually enjoy Yoshi’s games. So I’ll eventually grab it, but definitely not this year.

      3. I got the game and I would say that it is pretty hard if you aim to 100% it. It’s easy if you do a walkthrough and hard if you complete it. Especially the bonus levels. There are some transformations, but the gameplay does not change too much, appart from new enemies. And some bosses are the same, but you beat them in different ways.

        Off topic, but why are people not considering Mario Tennis when it comes to big games? It might have lots of content.

  27. I think all games should just not have a release date at all until they’re fully finished and ready to be played. It would be so awesome to watch E3 and then be able to play all those games in only the next week or two.

  28. Have to admit I was disappointed to wake up to this, too, though I understand the need to polish the game. Between this and Persona 5 getting delayed, I’m getting low on games I actually want to buy this holidays. Oh well. Hopefully, Xenoblade will still be coming out this year.

  29. Welp, more time for me to finish my Wii U backlog. I’m honestly glad they delayed this game. The game always felt really rushed so its good they have more time to work on it. The gameplay looks really fun but the graphics are not bad (to me) just acceptable. Which is not good when you compare it to other Wii U games that look really good.

  30. Good thing I wasn’t excited for this game. At least now I can have a slight hope that the game can come out looking better and more interesting than it did so far, because since it was unveiled at E3 I haven’t been sold on it at all.

    1. I agree! The big one this year is Halo 5: Guardians, but there are also a bunch of other games coming out on both XB1 and PS4 this year. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Fallout 4. I don’t know how I’m going to have time to play them all, I’m still on Rare Replay right now!

    2. Halo 5, 4, Master Chief Collection and 343i are an insult to the original Halo trilogy fans and fuck Tomb Raider. I played the first one and it’s just an Uncharted clone with lots of useless shooting and QTEs and a bit more of exploration/collection though. Anyway, original TR >>> Uncharted and its clones.

  31. Yes. Wii U continues is plummet as its zombie gaming library and reputation depletes. Such a sad display to behold. Fortunately I’m no longer part of those idiots still defending and thinking this POS console still has any reason to continue. Now that Star Fox is out, what’s next? Oh yeah, absolutely nothing.

  32. Welp!! (if there’s such a word)
    I’ll be getting: Mario Maker. Yoshis Wolly World. Xenoblade. Mario Power Tennis. Fatal Frame. & Just Dance 2016. With a hist of downloadable goodies from the Nintendo E Shop.

    Not to mention Im STILL playing SPLATOON (they keep giving us free new content!). Super Smash Bros. Mario Kart 8. Hyrule Warriors. So they can push STARFOX ZERO back as far as they want. JUST GET IT RIGHT!!

    I’ll be fine until next year!

  33. I’m wondering if Miyamoto is going to slide Pikmin 4 in the holiday 2015 slot, replacing Star Fox Zero. He did say Pikmin 4 was very close to completion like 2 weeks ago.

    They gotta bring something, I can’t imagine they are going to let the Friday before Thanksgiving come and go with no big release. They usually have a big game out every year right before thanksgiving

  34. I’m glad this was delayed. I’m already not going to be able to afford Christmas shopping this year due to the few games that ARE coming out (and over $230 worth of amiibos coming out).

  35. Thank God they didn’t go with the Splatoon tactic: release an unfinished game, with certain stuff locked on the disc, and releasing updates that unlock the locked content in the next few month’s of the game being out.

    But if Nintendo had pulled a Splatoon with Star Fox Zero, the fanboys would still be giving Nintendo head while the words “Great job, Nintendo! Keep it up!” gets muffled. I’m so glad the success of an incomplete-upon-release Splatoon didn’t effect Miyamoto while they were developing Star Fox Zero. I’d rather see delays than get an incomplete fucking game upon release. I’ve dealt with that bullshit from Ubisoft with the Assassin’s Creed games on the Wii U & I refuse to deal with it again.
