(Not including Star Fox being in Starlink)

I personally don't think so. At most, maybe an HD version of F-Zero GX. Nintendo just has no idea what to do with Star Fox and I doubt they'll do anything with it again. At least it does have Starlink though so maybe they'll let that team develop a Star Fox game in the future.

I would be perfectly fine with GX HD.

Nintendo basically doesnt want to make another FZero because they dont know what they can do with it to innovate the series. At least that's how Miyamoto put it. Basically, "what do you want from the series that we already havent done?" is how he put it.

I'm sure we'll see another Star Fox on the Switch though.

He could always strip away any semblance of a narrative

That's been a tried and true tactic of that old geezer for a decade now.

i think miyamotos no need to update mentality is pretty lame tbh.

like, obviously a newer game is going to have vast improvements over games that are over 2 generations old.

plus now theres online
add a story mode
make the courses even more crazy
edit: that was in regards to fzero btw
im not as worried about star fox i have a pretty good feeling after star link

This would be cool if you had 100 people racing and every so often the person in last place got blown up or something.

I mean, modern Ninty trying to top Star Fox 64 is like Jay Gatsby trying to reach the ever-receding green light. You can dream, but it ain't happening.


The problem is Nintendo keeps trying to re-make Star Fox 64 and it doesn't work lol

Star Fox, yes.
F-Zero, probably not.

It doesn't help that Nintendo's attempts to advance the series were met with lukewarm receptions while also gushing over Star Fox 64.

since you brought it up...

Star Fox was made by Argonaut Software
Star Fox 2 was made by Argonaut Software
Star Fox Adventures was made by Rare (and was not originally a Star Fox game)
Star Fox Assault was made by Namco
Star Fox Command was made by Q-Games
Star Fox Zero was made by Platinum Games
Star Fox Guard was made by Platinum Games

Star Fox 64 was pretty much the only SF game actually made by Nintendo, and not a 2nd or 3rd party developer
:/

Weren't they going to turn Star Fox into an F-Zero styled racer?

Or did that get scrapped along with Metroid Prime 4 version 1?

So far, that was just a rumor.

Though Starlink: Battle for Atlas is getting a racing mode.

Hell they could probably get away with a Star Fox Zero port with normal controls and people would enjoy it. F-Zero though? I wouldn't hold my breath

Nintendo may as well port every Wii U game to the Switch at this point...

This is what I've been saying. At least, every first- and second-party game should be ported.

Though the one that I think would be pretty much impossible is Game & Wario, since it was heavily designed around the GamePad.

At this point what popular/big titles are even left? Seems like they got just about everything now that a Mario Maker is coming.

F-Zero doesnt even need new shit. Its a fucking racing game. A good portion of the fun is learning courses and trying different vehicles; then you just master shit and beat the time trials. You can unlock and build custom vehicles.

A new game needs:
New courses
New vehicles/drivers
New music
Online (hours of challenge and replay)
Recycle the good old shit
Add in some new game modes if you can

That's it.


This is Nintendo. Neither of those things are motivation to make a new entry. New game mechanics is what push development.

For F-Zero? I'd hope so. Star Fox? Fuck Star Fox. Tired of seeing these over glorified furries in Smash let alone their own games which horribly flop.

Nintendo for some reason though thinks that they can't have 2 games within the same genre. Its why they keep making trash Paper Mario games when they have the Mario and Luigi franchise.

Youre 100% right. That is a mental block they have.
