Who at Nintendo thought another Star Fox game is a good idea?

Star Fox Adventures killed its franchise with special thanks to Miyamoto. It and every non-remake game after it flopped. The series is down there with Sonic the Hedgehog (washed up furry series). Watch it flop since Miyamoto and Co. ran the series into the ground after 64 to the point that is so unappealing (another link with Sonic).

Yeah the traditional rail shooter series is pretty limited in what it can do and the newer Zelda-esque games were pretty poorly received. Star fox needs a massive overhaul if it wants to be taken seriously again. I have a feeling Nintendo will simply opt to pander to nostalgia instead of taking it seriously though.

Based on the footage from E3, it looks like they are going back to their N64 roots. Wait until they reveal more.

I thought assault's arwing sections were great. If they could go back to what made sf 64 fun and possibly expand that with online co op for wingmen and it would be great.

Kinda worried that they will shoehorn in motion control a la starfox command which was OK but didn't control well with a stylus.

Just go with Star Fox 2's direction with the non-linearity of the first game and 64.

ITT: Starfox DS doesn't exist.

Good thing their main focus isn't expanding their casual market now, so I see a lot of potential for the next game. Can't wait to see some official gameplay footage!

It's Star Fox's answer to Shadow the Hedgehog.

I've been waiting 9 years for another console star fox game. I'm happy it's coming.
