Platinum Games Says Krystal Won’t Feature In Star Fox Zero

Platinum Games has confirmed that Krystal from Star Fox Adventures on the GameCube won’t be making an appearance in Star Fox Zero on Wii U. The news was confirmed via Platinum Games Yusuke Hashimoto who is co producing the delayed project. It’s not a new tweet, but it is one that has only recently been picked up. Star Fox Zero is arriving exclusively on Wii U in April 2016.

      1. The WiiU can-NOT be exposed to anything even slightly sexual. Hence, no Krystal.
        Remember whrn Bayonetta released, and half of the world rioted and caught buildings on fire and hung people over bridges?
        We cannot have that kind of a near-extinction event again.
        Once again, the day is saved!

        Don’t go as far as I have, though. Otherwise, you’ll have a few calling you a whiner, a troll, a kid, a liberal, etc Of course, the liberal part is true about me. But I’d rather be a liberal “kid” than a stuck up, close minded, asshole-ish, right wing republicunt that bends over for companies.

      3. Perhaps it’s best we leave politics out entirely- they’re sure to be the death of everything at the current rate.

        Anyway, yes, Ridley’s built up quite the following of Negative-Nancy accusers, even though he has valid points.

    1. What you said in response to this is BS because this upcoming game still has Fox, Wolf, Falco, and what not. It just so happens these three males are major targets by actual furries. There’s a lot of Fox, Wolf, and Falco yaoi ship that goes on in the furry world. Stop acting like it’s all just one character (Krystal).

        In Sakurais’ own words when giving us the bullshit excuse as to why he wasn’t adding the Ice Climbers into Smash 4 when people were pissed about his earlier reason that they’d be too hard to implement into Smash 4 3DS to calm them down which only resulted in pissing them off even more: she’s not relevant enough right now. Yeah, I know. It’s bullshit since he threw R.O.B., Duck Hunt, & Mr Game & Watch into the game who haven’t been relevant for many, many years, but this is Sakurai we’re talking about here.

      2. The relevancy had to do with the series entirely, Ice Climbers while retro was no where as popular as what you listed. Star Fox is still alive and thus isnt stopping Krystal regardless of Zero and all, you might as well argue this about King K Rool since he hasnt shown up in DKC since 64 on toip of retro not wanting to use him at all, but guess what that isnt stopping his supporters, so what makes it so different about her?

      3. You’re right in that Ice Climbers can’t match R.O.B. or Duck Hunt in legacy or popularity, but after being in two games, whether you liked their inclusion or not, it’s very clear that Smash is missing something special without them around.

        I for one would love for them to return, even if it means revamping their play style to being one character and their 8 color palettes are 4 Popo and 4 Nana.

        I’m not against them getting added & in fact am all for their inclusion, along with Ridley. I’m just speaking in terms of excuses that Sakurai will try to use if he has no intention of adding these characters into the game as playable. After all, Sakurai is very good at trolling people & coming up with bogus excuses for why he won’t do this or won’t do that. Whether he does it to be malicious or to just be funny in an attempt to stall for more time to do something his fans really want, I don’t really know.

        Of course it’s not a remake. It’s a reboot which is a reimagining of Star Fox 64 which itself was a reimagining of the original Star Fox. So yes. In a way, it IS Star Fox 64 HD with new vehicles & stages. But there is nothing wrong with that. No where in my comment did I ever say it was a bad thing.

      1. Adventures was NOT bad; it was just a Zelda game in a Star Fox skin. Sure, it’s the black sheep of the SF series, but being different from a previous installment does not a bad game make.

  1. Do we know yet if this game is actually a ‘new’ story or just a re-imagine / re-master? I haven’t been jumping on the news, but I kind of got the impression it’s just an updated version of the original, so Fox and his crew, Andross, maybe Wolf and mentions of Fox’ dad.

      3. That’s true, if nothing else, it was a poke at James in F-Zero.

        I don’t know, when Command first came out, I thought it was the best SF since 64. Then again, I was a mid-teenager who bought it on launch.

        Playing it again years later… I wonder how I thought this game was the shit- the game had so many plot holes and contradictions from past games, which were hardly ever mentioned at all (Adventures and Assault were mentioned a grand total of once each in the entire game) and established confusing new plot elements or alluded to events we never saw (Slippy: “How’s the Cloud Runner treating you, Krystal?” Krystal: “Well, I never thought I’d fly her again…” Like when the hell did she first pilot that thing? This is the first time we see it.) There’s also no explanation as to how James just shows up in the last mission of one story branch or why no one, not even Fox, notices he has appeared.

        Don’t get me wrong, I have fond memories of the game, but looking back, it isn’t as great as my old self made it out to be.

    Damn it! I was hoping she’d get a cameo in the game that would lead to a spinoff game that would be what Star Fox Adventures was originally meant to be: Dinosaur Planet!

    It’s sad that Krystal gets so much undeserved hate. It’s not her fault Miyamoto told them to turn Dinosaur Planet into a Star Fox game & thus forever curse the original canon of Star Fox thus resulting in this reboot.

    Give Platinum Games the reigns to a Star Fox Adventures reimagining where Krystal is the hero & Fox is the “damsel” in distress as Dinosaur Planet SHOULD have been! Nothing wrong at all with a hero of another story needing saving as Marvel, DC, Hollywood, etc do it all the god damn time!

    1. Star Fox was doomed even before Adventures even happened, you just didn’t realize it. The genre it is, is what doomed the series because it died off completely years after 64s original release, honestly name me at least ten rail shooters that came out recently that did as well as Star Fox, you seriously cant. To add, Adventures did nothing wrong much like Zelda II did nothing wrong, and many bash that game for being so different too.

      For the record, 643D sold horrendously compared to its original release by the way, by my guess Zero will do much worse.

        Star Fox 64 3D would have probably done better if the idiots at Nintendo had made the multiplayer local AND online. Sure it might not have done ALOT better but least it would have been better than what it did sell for.

    1. I think this is more of a case of her inclusion being completely arbitrary.

      Seriously, from what angle would her appearance in SFZ mean anything? If SF Adventures was remade and put her into the spotlight like Rare originally intended, that’s one thing (and a good one at that), but her showing up here just seems very unreasonable.

        That’s why I said a cameo at the end of the game with Krystal would be nice. She could pop up at the end of a post credits cutscene where Fox is investigating a signal on another planet at some kind of temple where he gets captured & ends with Krystal arriving at the temple just as he’s imprisoned.

      1. And yet Wario was in Super Mario 64 DS and has his own line of platformers.

      2. You do have a point about Wario with SM64, though this interview on the other hand is fairly recent and it talked specifically about the two appearing in a 2D sidescrollers like New Super Mario Bros. Though recent news about scrapped content (especially in New Super Mario Bros. 2) shows that they are lightening up a little towards the fat man.

        T’s a shame the same can’t be said for a certain princess and she was obviously left out of Super Mario Maker along with anything relating to the first SML.
