Platinum Games Wants To Do Star Fox News

It’s been a long time since the chirps of Peppy’s “barrel roll” and Falco’s stern disapproval came blaring out of our speakers, but it seems the heat is rising for a new Star Fox title.

The so-so Star Fox Command on the Nintendo DS marked the last time we saw McCloud and the team back in 2006.  Namco’s Star Fox Assault was a thoroughly forgettable experience on the GameCube, and Rare’s entry was never really a Star Fox game in the first place.  So you’ve got to go all the way back to 1997’s Star Fox 64 for the last truly great game in the series.

It’s been a long time.

Thankfully it seems Platinum Games Hideki Kamiya could be coming to the rescue.  Andriasang brings word of his latest Twitter updates, in which he claims:

“I want Nintendo’s staff to come to Platinum, stick guns at us and tell us ‘You guys make a new Star Fox.'”

Further details suggest Hideki-san pitched two Starfox concepts while under the employment of Capcom.  One turned out to become Okami.  The other – a 3D shooter – failed to offer anything beyond Star Fox 64, so he presumably put that one on the shelf pretty quietly.

Are you listening Shigeru Miyamoto?  Hideki Kamiya wants a Star Fox as well and so do we. is updated regularly per day with all latest Free Slim PS3 news and reviews.
