Star Fox Zero for the Nintendo Wii U has been delayed until next year, Nintendo has revealed on its Facebook page. Originally set to release on November 20, Mr. Miyamoto has decided to delay the game because the team believes it needs “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, and further polishing the level design and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes.”
Miyamoto admitted that Star Fox Zero has already reached a stage where it would be technically possible to release in time for this year’s holiday season, but Nintendo wants to polish the game a bit more so that players can more smoothly grasp the new style of play Nintendo is aiming for.
“Star Fox Zero is going to bring new game play and experiences that take it far beyond the framework established by Star Fox 64,” the post on Facebook said. “All the members of the development team are doing our best so that the final product will not betray your expectations. And the game will not be delayed for a very long time – we’re aiming to launch the game in Q1 2016. Please stay tuned for further announcements.”
