Fans will have to wait a little longer to et their hands on the latest Star Fox Zero game.

Star Fox Zero is the latest title in the series coming to the Wii U. It has been many years since Star Fox and his crew last graced our screens the former being Star Fox Command on the DS.

Zero was all set to be released on November 20, however Star Fox creator Shigeru Miyamoto announced on Nintendo’s Facebook page recently that the game was to be delayed until the first quarter of 2016.

“We have been developing Star Fox Zero for Wii U with the aim of releasing it this year”, Miyamoto wrote. “Although we felt that the development had been progressing well, we now believe that we will need a little more time to work on areas such as the unprecedented discovery that we want players to experience in the game by using two screens, and further polishing the level designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes. While we have already reached the stage where it would be technically possible to release the title in time for the year-end holiday season, we want to polish the game a bit more so that players will be able to more smoothly grasp the new style of play that we are proposing.” 

Miyamoto then goes onto say: “To the people looking forward to the launch of the game this holiday season, I am very sorry. Star Fox Zero is going to bring new game play and experiences that take it far beyond the framework established by Star Fox 64. All the members of the development team are doing our best so that the final product will not betray your expectations. And the game will not be delayed for a very long time – we’re aiming to launch the game in Q1 2016. Please stay tuned for further announcements.”

This is obviously disappointing news to gamers who were looking forward to purchasing the game in November as they now have to wait longer, but knowing Nintendo they always put the time and effort into their games to make them perfect and with that I think we can wait just a little bit longer.
