A rumour has appeared online suggesting that Nintendo and Platinum Games have doubled down on the motion controls in the troubled Star Fox Zero. The game understandably is in its final stages of development and Platinum and Nintendo have been hard at work tweaking the motion controls and reinforcing them. NeoGAF member ShockingAlberto claims that the game has been in “development hell” and that “fundamental control aspects simply don’t work.”
“I also heard that Star Fox Zero is in the final stretches, which makes sense since it’s coming out in April. But it’s not all cat treats and scratching posts for the game. The foxing minds at Nintendo and PlatinumGames doubled down on motion controls. My owner dug those controls, but seems like most people disagreed with him (like I often do). Could it spell doom for Star Fox? I don’t really know.”
“From what I have heard, development hell would be characterizing it charitably.
More like “Everyone is panicking as the game gets sent to certification because certain fundamental control aspects simply don’t work.”
