One of the more exciting announcements out of Nintendo was that Star Fox Wii U is a real thing, but that’s about all we heard about it… until now. They held a private event on Sunday for select media members, but until now we hadn’t heard much about the game outside of some brief descriptions of a few stages. That all changes right now. Check out the video above, where IGN goes in-depth with their experience with the game. Here are a few notes:

  • GamePad use is strictly for aiming, you still fly and do tricks with the control sticks.
  • The aiming is actually really intuitive and a clear advantage over the prior system used in games like Star Fox 64.
  • The helicopter has a robot guy you can drop down and control in first person.
  • Traditional on rails, valley style, stages are returning.
  • The demo took place in a boss mode type area from prior games.
  • Very adamant the game is happening, and they want it out a year from now (2015 summer).

Our Verdict


Nathanial Rumphol-Janc
I am the current Editor-in-Chief of Zelda Informer and have been running the show here since July 16th, 2008. I've actually been running Zelda Fan sites since 1998, so I've been in this "industry" for roughly 16 years. I'm 28 years old and have two kids, one biological, the other more of a step daughter (not legally yet, but practically). I live with my girlfriend and our two kids (Aiden, age 1 and half, Melody age 3 and half). I'm attending college to create video games web applications, and I naturally love Nintendo (I run a Zeld a website after all!). For those curious, I currently own a Wii U, Xbox One, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and a gaming PC (and a gaming capable laptop too!). I do plan to eventually get a PlayStation 4, likely when more comes out I am interested in playing on the system. I do play the Wii U more than any other system I own.
