This past April, I wondered out loud about the chances of Star Fox actually managing to make it to the Wii U in 2015. We’d heard practically nothing about the game at that point, getting only a mere glimpse of it at E3 2014, and with Nintendo ’s history of first party delays, it seemed like it would be tough to hit that holiday 2015 window with so little revealed so far.
Then came E3 2015, and the June event was practically centered around Star Fox, now Star Fox Zero, with a promised holiday release. Fans breathed a sigh of relief, as one major Wii U title, The Legend of Zelda, had already been delayed into 2016, but at least Star Fox would make the cut.
But not so, it turns out.
