Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms Playable Star Fox for E3, a Future for F-Zero and More

During December last year Shigeru Miyamoto and Bill Trinen filmed with some hugely popular YouTube channels, in turn reaching millions of subscribers. The most followed of those was Smosh Games, with over 5.5 million subscribers; Nintendo of America tweeted the appearance on 19th December. The video has now been uploaded, and Miyamoto-san gave a few interesting updates for the year ahead.

The video kicks off with the channel's crew and Miyamoto-san playing a few rounds of Mario Kart 8, but arguably the most interesting segment is the interview. Miyamoto-san outlines promising progress - from his perspective - on a host of projects, and some particular comments shed new light. When asked about F-Zero, it was stated that the franchise may return once the right controller interface becomes available; naturally we aren't clued in on specifics. Also, it was confirmed thatStar Fox for Wii U will be playable at E3 this year, and it was explained again that the dual screen setup (GamePad and TV) will allow for cinematic moments to blend with continuous gameplay.

It's a worthwhile watch, even if Miyamoto-san does tease 'more' Wii U games that he can't talk about. The Smosh Games crew were clearly starstruck, and the popular channel has also announced that it'll be running a weekly show (on Mondays) dedicated to all things Super Smash Bros.



Playable Star Fox at E3 is a good thing, hopefully that will mean more people get exposure to it, thus more sales, which Star Fox kinda needs...I mean, first game in 9 year.


Also, I kinda had an inkling F Zero would return just because Captain Falcon has been a regular in SSB, and now the F Zero track in MK8.  Still, nice to have confirmation.

Can't wait. I've loved the StarFox series since the beginning. I remember being excited when StarFox Command came out for the DS, cuz we know StarFox games doesn't really come out as often.  Plus, I can hopefully put my Fox Amiibo into more use.

I hope its 2D and not that Prime bullshit. 



And this new StarFox better be completely based around aerial combat.


I'd prefer a game like Prime over another one like Other M. But I agree with you, ideally the next Metroid would be an amazing 2D game like the originals. I honestly wouldn't be to upset if 2D Metroid games were on the handheld systems and Prime like games were on the home consoles. I was a huge fan of Fusion and thought it worked perfectly on the GBA.
