NintendoDpad: "From what ex-Factor 5 employees say, they were not only working on Pilotwings, but completely finished with the title."
If true, I want my Pilotwings next year!
sighs no Lair remake or no Lair at all!!!
Snes pilotwings still best. Mode 7 for the win xD
Amen sir +1.
I'll both agree and disagree with Sidar on this one. While I love Pilotwings on the SNES, I also loved it on the N64. They did a pretty good job of making it. To be honest, it's one of the few old school Nintendo titles that hasn't been milked to death, and I'd easily support a new iteration of it.
For some reason Starfox, pilotwings and mario 64 never really grabbed my attention that much as the Snes games. Not saying they are bad games, but i guess i have more joyful memories with the Snes version.
Ahh, I just want to see something awesome from these guys. I hope everything works out for them.
Factor 5 CEO is rumored to be making another company name. We will see.
Question (for real): What happen to Factor 5?
sikbeta -- Factor 5 still exists. Its U.S. studio...not so much. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://www.edge-online.com/... The U.S. studio had a multi-game deal with Brash Entertainment. Brash went under, and F5 needed that business commitment after Lair didn't perform as expected on PS3.
never like this game
always like this game
What gives here Nintendo Pilotwings and Fzero and possibly a Waverace too, would keep many fans very happy I just don't understand what's taking so long in getting these to us Iv'e still got my Wii and the best thing on it is Excitetruck(incredible game), but it's about the only thing i do have apart from Sports and Resort Thing is i was alright back in the N64 days because i only ever bothered to buy games for it anyway when it was the updated Nintendo classics such as the above I'm not as much into Mario Galaxy as i was SM64 and Zelda is even something i'm not entirely trusting of these days - so please just give us a Pilotwings, Fzero at least and we'll maybe shut up about Nintendo not giving us what we want
Yah but if the Pilotwings game isn't up to scratch that'd be even worse. They'd never hear the end of it.
Yea its weird that they didn't want to release it, but that just sums up their current state of mind though (no excitebots for EU or Disaster for US).
That sucks if Pilotwings was finished. I would have loved to have seen how the game would have worked on the Wii. I think the Wii could have allowed for a really cool gaming experience.
factor 5 used the controls for lair and nintendo doesn't want to touch it until the controls are no longer broken.
