Zero chance of a holiday release



According to Shigeru Miyamoto speaking on behalf of Nintendo, Star Fox Zero has officially been delayed into Q1 2016. Here is his quote

I made a big decision last week.

We have been developing Star Fox Zero for Wii U with the aim of releasing it this year. Although we felt that the development had been progressing well, we now believe that we will need 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 designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes.

While we have already reached the stage where it would be technically possible to release the title in time for the year-end holiday season, we want to polish the game a bit more so that players will be able to more smoothly grasp the new style of play that we are proposing.

To the people looking forward to the launch of the game this holiday season, I am very sorry.

Star Fox Zero is going to bring new game play and experiences that take it far beyond the framework established by Star Fox 64. 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.

While some may see this as extra time to polish the game after an underwhelming response from Nintendo's E3, some may be disappointed that yet another Nintendo title has been delayed to 2016, as the case that The Legend of Zelda Wii U was essentially delayed until 2016 earlier this year and was not shown at E3 at all.

With Zelda and Star Fox Zero delayed into 2016 that leaves a bit of a void in this holiday season for Nintendo, what do you think? Leave a comment with your thoughts!
