Co-op Mode Confirmed for Star Fox on the Wii U
Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed a few new interesting bits about the upcoming Star Fox
game for the Wii U. First up is a note that there will be dual-screen cutscenes for the game. One will appear on your TV, the other will appear on the Wii U Gamepad.
Also of note, perhaps even more notable, is that the game will include co-op.
We’re still developing the game… but one thing we always like to try to do is have some sort of way for people to play together, and the thing about these types of space shooter games is that they’re fairly easy to get into but they can look somewhat intimidating and complicated, so this time what we’re doing is we actually have a mode—we just didn’t show it—we’ve designed it so there’s the ability for cooperative play where one player is able to pilot the ship and the other player is able to use the GamePad and be the gunner. So they can just aim and shoot. They don’t have to worry about flying.
