Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert conducted a new Reddit AMA today. As a Star Fox developer who has played an influential role in the Star Fox series, he had plenty to say about the franchise. He spoke about an old-school re-make pitched to Nintendo, working on Star Fox Command (and its endings), and his own personal ideas for a new game. Cuthbert also weighed in on Switch, Nintendo’s Game Boy title for “X” and why it never left Japan, and more.
We’ve collected a number of important responses from the Reddit AMA below. You can read the full thing right here.
Miyamoto wants to put more energy into Star Fox, Pikmin
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 143 Comments | 0 Likes
Fans were able to submit a bunch of questions to Shigeru Miyamoto when he showed up for the Super Mario Run event at the Apple Store in SoHo a few days ago. At one point, he was asked if there was any character he wanted to develop or felt very passionate about that didn’t make it. He pointed to two franchises: Fox McCloud (Star Fox) and Pikmin.
“Yeah, I always wanted Fox McCloud to be a bit more popular than he is. But I think one more would be Pikmin. So I think these two, I’ll need to put some more energy into.”
Rumor: Koei Tecmo pitched Star Fox Warriors game to Nintendo, but never progressed
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Rumors | 84 Comments | 0 Likes
Believe it or not, LetsPlayVideoGames isn’t finished with its Nintendo rumors for the day. This time around, the site shares some information about an unconfirmed pitch from Koei Tecmo.
The Japanese company, who previously worked on Hyrule Warriors (and Legends), allegedly made a pitch for a Star Fox-themed Warriors title. Melee combat would have been the focus with some space dogfighting segments mixed in. Motion controls would have been absent, “focused on alternating missions between ground combat and a simplified space combat system designed to be simple to control and visually over the top.” It would have been comparable to Hyrule Warriors in many ways.
Nintendo is said to have turned down the pitch “due to questions regarding the future of the brand.” It never left the design stage, and it’s unknown which system it was targeted for.
Despite the Star Fox pitch not progressing, Koei Tecmo remains interested in giving another Nintendo franchise the Warriors treatment. Additionally, Nintendo is apparently open to that as well.
