The Wii U version of Star Fox will be playable at this year’s E3, Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed.
“I think we’ll have a version of [Star Fox] ready at E3 that everyone can play,” Miyamoto told YouTube channel Smosh Games. “But one of the questions that we often get is how is the GamePad being used in a particular game, and Star Fox is a game where having two screens is really important. It works really well.”
Nintendo has yet to show the new Star Fox publicly, but revealed last year that the gamwould take advantage of the GamePad’s touchscreen in some pretty interesting ways.
“One of the things that we’re doing is, often times in games you have the cinema scenes where it’s a movie that’s playing and you have to just sit back and watch. There’s no gameplay,” he continued. “But because we have the GamePad with the second screen, what we can do is have these cinematic sequences in the game where you’re still able to look around and play.”
Star Fox is due for release later this year for the Wii U.
