A Message from Mr. Miyamoto regarding Star Fox Zero: I made a big decision last week.
Well that sucks :/
Poor WiiU, no Holiday line-up this year.
do you even have a Wii U? Why do you care? and what do you know about Wi U's line up for the rest of the year?
Aside from Fatal Frame, Mario Maker and Xenoblade X. Yep two games that use the pad really well and what is probably going to be one of the best JRPGs of this gen. Certainly that is abig fat nothing....
I don't keep up with Wii U news much, but there's still Mario Maker (out now), Yoshi Wholly World (for NA), and Xenoblade Chronicles X to name a few. I might be missing some other games also.
I was hoping for Zelda, Star Fox and Xenoblade and now only Xenoblade is left. I prioritize MGS and Fallout 4 before Mario Maker and Fatal Frame. @wheresmymonkey I highly doubt Xenoblade X will be better than Withcer 3 in being the best rpg this gen. At least in my opinion. I am actually in doubt if X will surpass Xenoblade Chronicles. Hopefully it does though.
I think this is GREAT news actually. The game didn't look impressive both from a graphics and gameplay standpoint. Now with more time ... they can make the Star Fox sequel we deserve. I rather have a great game later on then have a disappointing game early. Also this is more reason why third party support is needed if you are Nintendo. When you have games like Fallout, Star Wars Battlefront, Call of Duty, NBA 2, Madden, FiFa, Metal Gear Solid ... you really don't need to have your own games rushed to meet deadlines as much since your console owners will still have plenty to keep them happy.
This game is not going to change radically in less than a year. They're probably adding more polish or a throwaway multiplayer mode.
upset but not surprised. they were really rushing this one.
Agreed,the writing was on the wall. This sucks but It was being rushed and needed that nintendo polish we all love! I am actually very happy and sad, happy because now hopefully we will get the starfox game fans have been yearning for! and sad because this holiday i want more wiiu games to play with my kids and wife. Nintendo make fantastic family friendly hardware/software. The wiiu is bloody awesome even with its short commings.
I guess Miyamoto is following his philosophy about delayed games.
This was needed! Improve the graphics..
Precisely. Don't think it will happen though, it's not enough time to completely revamp the visuals.
Complete revamp is not needed, I think there is a difference between corneria and that desert planet, and yes, I think they can do some more polishing for 2 months now, then release it in january or february.
You only have to revamp so much in a space game like this for it to be appreciated.
I hope that at least they update the game engine . It's awful to WiiU standards
Was really wanting to play this :( 2016 is getting full and I don't have a lot of money guyz!
I never buy games at launch, especially now when theres crowded with them.
That is a sound strategy, to buy games when they are slightly old and crucially cheaper but problem is this logic doesn't apply with Nintendo titles 😡 Nintendo games are evergreen titles and do not drop in price and Nintendo fans rarely trade their games in so used is not an option! Nintendo games hold there value very well.
Sucks, but at least the extra time will be used to improve the game. Until then we have endless Mario levels to play.
There's also Xenoblade X, Fatal Frame, various indie games, need I go on?XD
Master Monkey, ingenious as always.
Oh, I know. Totally buying Xenoblade, and the endless Mario levels was meant as a good thing.
so all thats left mario tennis now?
Xenoblade Chronicles X, sir, Mother of God Xenoblade Chronicles X.
Although I love JRPGS, its pretty niche, also low WiiU install base wont help it. First Xenoblade sold something like ~1m on almost 100m Wii's install base.
No bro... Devil's Third aka GOTY
To be fair, the new Gladiator multiplayer mode looks pretty fun. It's nothing but Melee, and a weapon drops into the stage at random times. Kills with it get double points, but you're also marked on the minimap when you hold the weapon, so it's literally painting a target on your own back. It's pretty crazy and looks like one heck of a lot of fun.
Guess that leaves only Shi Megami Tensei to look forward to on the Wii U for me this year =/ Inb4 this game is delayed to be a launch title for the NX!
The SMT X Fire Emblem arrives to the west in 2016, unless you are from Japan... Also, Star Fox Zero was delayed to Q1 2016, probably because Nintendo needed a game for, what else, the first months of 2016.
Kind of happy, didnt have time this year anyway
is this how Nintendo apologists react to Nintendo''s faults? By turning them into something positive? With such philosophy I could say that I'm glad about Wii U's failure, because I saved money and time.
Don't really care if you are being sarcastic or you just want to troll, it's not funny and instead, you sound so pedantic. Games are not serious business.
Actually, it just means you missed out on some great Nintendo games. Starfox was looking not so great and the wise move was made to delay it until its ready. Im glad because releasing it when they were planning was going to result in disaster anyway. Who among true Ninty fans thought this would release this year anyway?!?!
Was going to wait until next year to buy it anyways, so this is good news.
Thank Goodness. This means I'll have time to save up for it instead of stressing over how I'll freaking afford it alongside other things coming out this year.XD
Master, Do you think Devil's Third is worth getting at release??
I was mad at first but then remembered I will be very busy with Fall Out 4 and Xenoblade X so I can wait. Other games as well but those two will see the most action.
Wow, for a current console, how many releases has it seen all year? 4? Mario Maker Splatoon Mario Party 10 Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Terrible.. terrible!!
and only 2 of them are notable, although U can probably add Xenoblade soon, maybe...
Releasing December 4th. There's also Fatal Frame and Fast Racing Neo, alongside any other projects I've forgotten to mention from outside sources like indies.
Yoshi's Wooly World was released this year too. But i agree that the line-up from the last year it's better, with games like: Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors and Captain's Toad.
Agreed wiiu releases this year is laughable!! It's been like that since launch and u really feel Nintendo sent the console out to die. It's like the expected the PS3 and 360 to still keep going and so targeted those consoles when designing the wiiu. Hence why it's just a little more powerful then a PS3! And can't compete technically with ps4 and X1. They probably didn't realise just how fast gamers would adopt the new gen ps4/X1 and how fast developers would abandon last gen PS3/xbox360. Ps4 and X1 are being adopted lightning fast, the wiiu should of been the console to launch instead of the original wii or half way through PS3 life not at the end of it. The lack of third party games is hurting the wiiu so much because Nintendo shouldn't be aiming to be the second console for gamers but to be the primary console instead. This year is dismal for wiiu especially because allot of its games are more niche.
That has not even been all the releases this year but keep trollin
The only retail games released this year for the Wii U that RiPPn didn't list were Lego Jurassic World and Disney Infinity. Only diehard fanboys would think that having just 6 games released in 9 months is a good thing.
^ You are not even right.
Sad news, but it's always better to wait for the best experience. Xenoblade is still coming.
Not a surprise. Take the time to polish the textures a bit, put online multiplayer in there. We've waited this long. A few more months won't hurt. It does hurt them for the holiday season though.
Happy with this myself. Got the following on my end of year list already...fatal frame (limited edition go Europe!) Xenoblade x, metal gear, star wars and assassin creed syndicate. Too many games in too short a time! Go miyamoto-san make it awesome! This way it doesn't compete and I get a better game for it!
On one hand, that will allow me to properly appreciate the backlog of games I have acquired, on the other hand...gutted! Yes, I'm sure the extra time afforded said game will offer its rewards, but I'll admit it, this is a big loss for the Wii U leading up to Christmas.
Just try not to hang yourself when they push zelda over to nx, because that's going to happen.
I absolutely guarantee it won't. I'll even eat my hat if Zelda ends up being released on both platforms simultaneously like Twilight Princess was.
Plus people have been moaning so much that its sub par with a few specific issues (textures, empty landscapes NON MANDATORY gamepad controls etc) if some of these can be improved then that kills those arguments and thats just great for everyone
Delays happen all the time. If they make the game better, who cares. Nintendos holiday still has Fatal Frame, Xenoblade, Mario Tennis, Zelda 3DS, Yokai, Animal Crossing and more. Not great, but still better than the other options.
The games you listed are better than the plethora of first and third party games releasing on Ps4/Xb1? Fallout 4, Witcher 3, Bloodborne, and Mgs5 are regarded as the main goty candidates, and none are releasing on Wii U. Nintendo better really step it up with the NX when it comes to third party games...
That is just the freaking Holiday. Nintendo had more games this year, The games you listed are not holiday. And you are a fanboy, GOTY means nothing.
Did you have to include 3ds games to pad out the list?
I would have put Vita games, but Sony does not support its own system. Considering 3DS is the top selling sytsem globally, and a giant part of what Nintendo does, NOT including it is stupid. Nintendo was consensus media publisher of the year the last 2 years. This year, they have already had 4 major hits. 4. No company can say that.
My comments on this delay announcement will be available following the release of a patch after the game is on shelves. ;-)
OK how many people actually read the post? I think the dual screen controls are an issue and they made the decision to use duel screens based on Iwata trying to justify the wii u. Now they need to make that concept work more smoothly. Also nicer cinematics are important. Even still, this a is a big loss. I wa really looking forward to playing this in November. Hope we get Pikmin 4 as compensation.
In your dreams. With NX launching next year they need as many launch titles as possible and Pikmin seems to be one of them. Myamoto, while saying it is almost complete, only just revealed the game existed. Star fox was almost complete and was about to release, now its delayed till sometime next year. You really think a game with one mention and no trailer is coming out anytime soon?
Literally everything they make from the beginning of the wiiu till now will possibly work on the nx platform.
Didn't care regardless. The game only looked like a rental to me. I really just want them to work on NX titles because I'm pretty much done with my Wii u, besides smash and assuming Zelda is being moved to NX, so I just want to be impressed with the initial reveal.
This is the problem though, you're STILL supporting them after making a shitty system. They shohld be supporting the wiiu for another 3 years, and instead they're ditching and expecting us to drop another $300 hoping they get it right this time? Hell no. I'd rather put that towards a new gaming PC.
I'll be buying their next console because I have faith in the company despite recently messing up because theyve created some of the best existing consoles and video fame franchises to date. Ditching the Wii u was the best decision for them instead of waiting around with it losing money for another 2 to 3 years. And if you want to go the PC route, that would be much more expensive. Parts for a PC on par with or greater than current consoles would cost over a grande.
Yeah, I'm still supporting them, and I don't regret it a single bit. Even if the Wii U's life ends up being pretty short, it's already given me a lot of superb titles to play in these 3 years it's been out, so it's been well worth the investment for me. So, even if the NX releases as early as next year (let's wait and see), they will have my money day one. And that's the thing that you fail to understand: not everyone has the same perspective regarding Nintendo as you. Some of us genuinely enjoy their games and their consoles, shortcomings and all.
Maybe less time playing with puppets in treehouses, more time actually working on games? Oh come on, we all know it's going to suck no matter how much time they have.
I wasn't planning on buying this until about March or April anyway. I hate a backlog, so I typically keep said backlog in the store, until I'm ready to play. I have never been bothered by droughts as a result.
The game is finished already. They pushed it to 2016 because there is nothing releasing next year. We are not even sure if Zelda will come out. It might release for the NX system.
That does not benefit Nintendo in anyway.
Not having games or pushing it back? Either way they have nothing but a game drought next year.
