Shigeru Miyamoto has said that he is disappointed with Japanese reaction to the Star Fox games.
I grew up with starfox.. everyone loved it. Even girls... Bring it to the USA/UK(there are more gamers than there are in japan)
I PLAYED IT TILL I GOT 100 PERCENT ON EACH LEVEL couldnt do the last tho. MIYAMOTO LOOKS SO PI%%ED in that pic, like he needs to go to the toilet for a second outing. why use that picture? oh wait sorry i just realised hes suppose to look dissapointed. but man i never thought we find a pic of him like that
He should release a new Wii (and DS, maybe with a Wii/DS connection) Star Fox game in North America and Europe, where they will be better recieved and will sell more. Satisfy your fans Miyamoto! I really want to see a new Star Fox game so bad, I'll buy it for the DS. That is the only DS game I've ever cared about to beat 8 times.
I find it sad that neither Star Fox or Metroid are popular in Japan. Apparently it doesnt have enough moe-schoolgirl-pantsu material... I love Japan and its games but sometimes japanese gamers want me to bang my head on a wall.
I'm not a fan of Nintendo's recent activities, I'll say it outright. That being said, StarFox was one of the last SNES franchises that I really loved. I'd like more StarFox support since I did love the last game on the N64. I have StarFox 2 on my SNES emulator and it's coolness. I'm going on 31 now and I gave up on Nintendo when the first PS came out, but Nintendo had some good things coming. StarFox shouldn't be a ground fighter or anything else. The original SNES game is still my favourite in the series. I can beat it in 15 minutes, and it's still the best. The fact is that Nintendo shouldn't keep hammering out the Mario license for it's sales. StarFox was awesome. To this day I hope Miyamoto does something more.
My son loves Starfox. you bastard. bring it to the US/UK
Still clinging on to Mario, Zelda, Metroid and the old classic, eh Nintendohhh?
New IPs are forbidden with Nintendont
REALLY CLINGING if you think about it take away mario and crew you got nothing left. but because of this sucess they are still alive in the industry and especialy with their smart minds to go with casual gamers. THO ITS TOTAL EFFED UP THAT TOO MANY REAL GAMERS ARE BORED WITH THE WII NOT EVEN BUYING 3RD PARTY GAMES. IT FINALLY WAS CONFIRMED AT MADWORLD
I have no problem with this. These classics are still AAA games and I love them. Now if only those damn motion controls didn't exist...
EVERY game developer "clings" to established IP. They stick with proven sellers. Nintendo just happens to have been around longer. Y'know how many dedicated console Super Mario platformers (not mini game compilations and mascot games) there have been so far? 7 games. In 24 years. [We'll get 2 more soon, so you could change that to 9 in 25 years.] Console Zeldas? Also 7 games. In 23 years. Console Metroids? 5 games. In 23 years. Compare that to other marquee franchises. How many Halos have we gotten so far on consoles? 5 games in 8 years. GTA? Excluding PSP ports and DLC? 7 games in 11 years. There have been as many Halos in less than a decade than there have been Metroids in almost 25 years. ...and people say Nintendo are the ones riding their core franchises too much? Don't get me wrong, I was a GTA addict last gen. I love the franchise, and I'm happy for its success. But ya gotta use business sense here. When you have a proven winner, you stick with it. Nintendo will be publishing games like Dynamic Slash soon. They already published Disaster: Day of Crisis this gen, too. Batallion Wars and Pikmin came out on the GC. But they have to balance that with their big three. Plus other franchises like the Excite racers, Fire Emblem, KI, F-Zero, Sin and Punishment...and yes, Star Fox. In short, they have a buttload of games.
... When Nintendo actually pushes for more 3rd party support, what do people do? They complain because there's no new Zelda/Metroid/Mario game... ... When Nintendo actually brings out their newest Mario/Zelda/Metroid game, what do people do? They complain because there's a lack of 3rd party support. Usually because 3rd party devs pass over the Wii because they don't want to make games on a system that can't show off swanky HD graphics. Which, while looking hella nice, always, IN MY OPINION, NOT STATED AS FACT, often comes off as a smokescreen for sub-par gaming or lack of innovation. "I've played this before, but man it looks great!" So in Nintendo's defense, it's "d***ed if you do, and d***ed if you don't." Which is sad and annoying.
Nintendo really needs some new IP's. Every year it is Mario this and that. Mario is great but you need some variety.
Zelda and Starfox is one of the only IP I love from Nintendo. I'm shocked like Miyamoto.
was one of the greatest games of all time 10 times more addictive than crack,seriously the game fun never ends in that gem "remembers sf64 big boxart with the brandnew rumble pack" ohhhhhh THE NOSTALGIA
I still remember the time I've played the first Star Fox. Man I sucked.
I preferred the games cube one lol
I'm happy to see all the Star Fox love around here.
Eh...I think the Star Fox series has become misguided after Star Fox 64. Adventures on Gamecube turned into Zelda all of a sudden, they don't know what they want to do with the series anymore
So..... this is why there isn't a new starfox.
Star Fox 64 all day. :)
Starfox and F-Zero are the only games i miss the most from Nintendo
Do a barrel roll! =)
"hey Einstein im on your side"-falco remember the first boss?? "ha,so this is star fox,Im going to crush you" shoot him in the back and he is like "NOOOOOO" slippy come and says"enemy shield analyzed" haha and star wolf at the end before going down to andros "YOU ARE GOOD.....BUT IM BETTER"- star wolf leader the game was 100\100,full of energy and epic
Maybe if they didn't let weak 3rd parties handle the Starfox series. Nintendo should put in the same amount of effort they put in with Zelda, Mario and Wii Fit series and maybe they would see Japan start to love the Fox series again. Starfox 64 was the last great Starfox game.
Uhhh.... are you trying to be a turn10 or MGR copy????? Cause you're the same guy that said Ocarina of time was a crap game, along with majora's mask.... lol Those were two of the most critically acclaimed games.
If you make it they will come. Stop the Wii Fit, Wii Resort, Wii Music, Wii Weep nonsense and start working on a true kick [email protected]@ Starfox!
Maybe less and less people are buying Star Fox games because the last 3 Star Fox games have been terrible.
StarFox! My favorite childhood game ever.
How about keeping to the actual formula of flying and shooting? Don't make a platformer. Don't make an RPG. Don't make a platformer w/RPG elements. Why couldn't you have just put out Starfox2 on the SNES? Why'd you have to go for the dinosaur planet? Did it ever occur to you that that's where you took a misstep?
Starfox 64 - this is one of the only games i can say i 100% fully mastered, i played this non-stop. Would completed it a few times a day just to see the final boss. I have never played any of the other starfox games for some reason i can't explain, but if there were to be a new one i'd jump on it.
I've got a confession to make - I didn't like Starfox either. I tried to, but I just didn't like it. I love other kinds of space shootey games but I just didn't connect with Starfox.
maniacmayhem Mii agree 100% see what did there ;)
I keep my Wii because at some point they may be another Starfox, Pilotwings, Fzero These games are pure gold when in Nintendo's hands It would be nice to actually see some of them of course As much as Nintendo have had to change direction to embrace this huge new audience, i hope they at some point update these most beloved ip's Mostly though i'm gagging for Pilotwings
I agree with Pilotwings, to think Nintendo has so many IPs it could focus on is staggering.
It's certainly true that the Gamecube Starfox games just didn't turn out very well - ok but not magical like a Nintendo starfox game
It's because they have all been inbred into insanity.
The original starfox team basically said fvck the wii up it's ass. Starfox was a great series but the support for great wii games is deminishing fast. It's not a great system. And because of that, it can't grow...
last starfox I played was on the N64 with the introduction of the rumble pack.............Ratchet will poop on StarFox these days with the last GEN wii....
Well im disappointed in these so called companies that have been stealing people's money by releasing crap games for the last generation or so, and im also disappointed that most games today can't hold a candle to alot of snes games.
The Japanese do not like those type of games.
That's why i dont bash nintendo, because, one way or another, we all come from there. In other hand, what i cannot stand are the xbots, they are the biggest disgrace for gaming since the North American game crash of 1983 They all deserve to be wiped out of existance.
"do a barrel roll...." lol
oh wait! don't worry we have Ratchet and Clank: TOD and ACIT!
wow... 2 totally different games... i dont even......
Make the pilot a sexy female cat girl and call it "Star Cat" and it will immediately be popular in Japan.
while at it, make her a lolicon and they will sell 4 billion copys on japan... most perverted country i know...
... me too...
what team do you guys want to make star fox? for me i think the most likely team is retro. as miyamoto said star fox isnt that popular in japan so i think a western team making it would be a good idea. of course an EAD star fox would also rock but EAD are too busy to make one i feel
The new Starfox should have music like on the SNES or GCN. The upbeat music was awesome. Now the question is when?
Actually i know the reason... Slippy
I only ever played Starwing and Lylatwars. Awesome games that will never die.
