Star Fox Zero will miss its holiday 2015 release date.


Nintendo has announced that Star Fox Zero is not releasing in 2015. A message from designer Shigeru Miyamoto was posted earlier, revealing the news.

“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,” said Miyamoto.

“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.”

As for a new release date, the message confirmed it has now been moved to Q1 2016.

Star Fox Zero was one of E3 2015’s surprise announcements and was slated for release in November.
