Platinum Games Talks Star Fox Zero And Bayonetta

GameSpot is currently running a number of interesting features with Platinum Games. One of these features is about Star Fox Zero which was meant to come out this holiday season, but has instead been pushed back to next year. From the sounds of it, it seems as though the franchise is in safe hands with Platinum Games who have had years of experience working on action-packed titles. Here’s what Star Fox Zero co director Yusuke Hashimoto had to say about both Star Fox and Bayonetta.

“Thinking about how we can make it fun, how we can make it interesting. That’s something that neither side really has [done]. It’s just new for both of us. That’s where you get stimulated: what ideas, what can we do there? It’s always fun to think about. We’ve been working with action games long enough. We understand how the players play an action game, how they respond to an action game, how they’ll move, what they’ll do in the situational stuff. What we’re making here now, it’s totally a new learning experience for us, which is kind of fun to find out.”

While Star Fox Zero may not be the only Wii U title Platinum Game is working on–the team was mum, but cheeky, when asked about the possibility of a Bayonetta 3–it is the only one they’re talking about right now. Working with dual screens continues to be the biggest challenge, for Hashimoto and his team. He remembers working on Bayonetta 2 and thinking how the unique controller could be incorporated into a shooting game scheme.

“We’ve got them both moving at 60 fps, which is big for a lot of people, I think,” he says, dropping the famous number. “But I think that it’s kind of a milestone in gaming, in a way. It’s not something that we have done ourselves before at Platinum, and it’s just not even something that has been done in gaming before. So it’s a lot of new challenges.”

    1. It should’ve stayed “Dinosaur Planet” for N64. I probably would’ve accepted it over the horrendous cuts scenes and inclusion of magic into the Star Fox universe. This game should fix all that finally. Krystal was cool though.

        Coming from a fan of Star Fox Adventures, I agree that it should have stayed as Dinosaur Planet but thrown in Fox as the one needing to be saved, forcing Krystal to work with the Star Fox team to save their leader. Oh & no shoehorning fucking Andross into the game as the final boss! That was actually the only problem I had with Adventures. As for the magic thing, they could have easily chalked that up to being some kind of phenomenon that certain special planets have because something about the planets’ electromagnetic field gives some of it’s inhabitants, or visitors, certain abilities. But once they leave the proximity of the planet, the magic powers they gained on said planet disappear. In a science fiction world, you can very easily explain magic as an actual natural thing if you got a good enough imagination.

  1. Bayonetta 2 is one of the best action game this gen console and runs smooth 60fps, which is awesome and other is starfox zero will enhance experience further using 2 screens, which isn’t easy task and this one title will be using this kind of technology and will be very interesting the end results going to be.

      1. I don’t think that statement hints at any news on Bayonetta in particular, but I’d gladly be proven wrong. It’s probably one of my favorite recent series. Hell, Bayo 1 is probably my favorite 7th gen game, period.
