Star Fox U Gameplay Details Revealed; Multiple Game Modes will be Available – E3 2014

Star Fox Wii U E3 2014

In a Q&A Session with GameSpot, Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo of Japan revealed many new details about the upcoming Star Fox title coming to the Nintendo Wii U.

Justin Haywald of GameSpot was on the E3 2014 show floor today and said that the Wii U GamePad gives you a cockpit view, allowing you to aim and look around whilst your Arwing (Airship) is on the move. Haywald also mentioned that the TV gives you more of a traditional Star Fox look, giving you a better scope of the battlefield and allowing you to keep an eye on your fighter when doing tricks in mid-air.

According to Haywald, the fact that the game is in its beginning stages means that there are still a few gameplay kinks that need to be sorted out, one of which includes tracking enemies – but not to worry, because piloting is flawless remaining new, refreshing and improved.

Chances are that most Star Fox fans know of flight members Slippy, Falco and Peppy. According to Haywald, the voices of the characters are brought-to-life since things can now be heard through the Wii U GamePad.

Miyamoto also got to speak, in fact, and he had a wealth of new information to provide. “The game will have styles of missions that we call ‘valley mode,’ where you’re flying forward through a straight, narrow valley area. Before, in the N64 levels, when we had these valley modes, it was difficult to play because the aiming was synched to the movement of the ship. So as you tried to aim, the ship was flying around within the valley. Now what we’re able to do with the Wii U GamePad is, because the ship can move independent of your aiming, it makes it much more interesting and much more fun to play these valley modes,” he said.

Vehicles have returned, and some are even new! The returning ground-battle champion aptly titled the Landmaster Champion gives players a ground view complete with a precise Wii U GamePad aiming experience. According to Miyamoto, there will also be a new Helicopter vehicle. More on that to come.

Finally, Shigeru Miyamoto spoke about the story and missions. “As far as the story goes, we’re in an era where people have a limited amount of time and limited ability to play these long, story-based games so there will be a story for the game, but you’ll be able to choose the missions that you want to play.”

Miyamoto revealed that more information would be revealed closer to the release of this game. Are you excited for the release of Star Fox U? What do you think the final name of the title will be? Sound off in the comments below!
