Following its E3 digital broadcast event, and a Time magazine article
that appeared to accidentally break a reveal embargo, Nintendo has now confirmed that a new project in the classic Star Fox franchise is indeed in the works under the guidance of industry icon Shigeru Miyamoto, with a prototype demo on Wii U now on display at its booth.
Muting expectations somewhat Miyamoto appeared to play down the scope of the yet-to-be-titled Star Fox game when speaking with Time, describing it as more like a TV series than the franchises' usual movie-like entries.
You said at the event that all of these games might be related. In what way? As part of a single Star Fox game? Or as something more multiform and arcade-like, like Nintendo Land?
Honestly I don’t have a clear idea myself yet, but one thing I’m thinking is that with this Star Fox we may take a different approach, so that rather than one big title we have multiple releases that are connected through different missions. If I was to describe the Star Fox series up until now as being sort of a movie series, I guess I’d describe this new approach as something that’s more like a TV series for Star Fox.
No captured footage has been provided by Nintendo, but we do have this single photo of Miyamoto playing the booth demo, hold still at let me shoot you, indeed.
