According to a quotation from the most recent issue of Game Informer, the new Star Fox title for Wii U will feature two different control schemes.
The article states that the game can be controlled using either motion controls or the GamePad’s analog sticks; this is likely a huge relief for classic Star Fox fans, as many were worried that the motion controls that we have heard about would be the only control scheme. The article also states that the Landmaster will return, and that the game is still pretty rough.
You can check out a photograph of the Game Informer article below; it’s not the best picture, so here’s the text:
“Nintendo is planning on bringing Fox McCloud out of retirement for a new entry on the Wii U. Fox will be able to fly his Arwing and seamlessly transform into a tank during certain sequences. Pilots can control the game either with their GamePad’s analog sticks or motion control. The game was very early in development and looked admittedly rough the last we saw of it, but we’re hoping Fox gets the new, grand adventure he deserves.”
