Nintendo’s newest entry into the Star Fox franchise has been pushed back, according to a message from Shigeru Miyamoto.
“I made a big decision last week” the message starts. “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.”
Miyamoto goes on to say “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.”
Always humble, Miyamoto apologized for the delay saying “To the people looking forward to the launch of the game this holiday season, I am very sorry.”
While it’s a shame for those who were looking forward to the Star Fox Zero (myself included), the tide may be stemmed by many of Nintendo’s E3 titles which are still scheduled to release within the following months
