Star Fox coming to Wii U in 2015 alongside two other Miyamoto projects

Posted on June 10, 2014 AT 02:05pm

Star Fox is jumping onto Wii U in 2015 alongside two other projects from Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto: Project Giant Robot and Project Guard.

Players will control the Arwing by using the GamePad’s motion controls, with the controller serving as a first-person cockpit view. Players can also switch to the Landmaster tank on the fly to engage in ground battles. Finally, the game features a new vehicle, a helicopter that can deploy a small robot.

Project Giant Robot sees players take control of a giant skyscraper-sized machine as you take on another robot of equal size. The aim is to knock the opposing robot over without falling over yourself. This is achieved by tilting the GamePad back and froth to steady your robot’s tors, while using the analog sticks to attack. Like Star Fox, Project Giant Robot also offers a first-person viewpoint via the GamePad.

Finally there’s Project Guard. In this title players must control 12 cameras to fend off a robot invasion, with the GamePad acting as an overhead map.
