Starfox Zero coming to Wii U for Holiday 2016

After announcing Starfox Zero last year, Nintendo confirms it’s launching before the end of 2015

Whether you played it on the SNES the N64 or even the DS the new Starfox game is landing on the Wii U later this year.

Announced last year but still too early to show off, Nintendo confirmed its arrival at its E3 2015 Nintendo Direct stream. Nintendo also revealed that it’s a game rebuilt using ideas from the past and not a remake.

Starfox Zero will utilise both of the Wii U’s two screens, with the GamePad covering aim and your TV giving you a more cinematic view of the action.

Creator Shigeru Miyamoto bizarrely explained that he wanted to create a game where you fly through arches and will use the Wii U GamePad’s built-in gyro motion sensor to help you feel really immersed in the game.

Giving us more of a taste of the third person shooter gameplay, Starfox Zero will let you play stages with different vehicles like a mech walker and a Landmaster tank.
