Nintendo and Platinum Games' Star Fox Zero won't be delayed until July, as recently rumoured after supposed retailer leaks. Nintendo just reconfirmed via official PR that the space combat game will arrive on Wii U on April 22, Amiibo support included:
"Star Fox Zero delivers a new beginning for the classic shooter series. With a unique control scheme that uses both the TV screen and the screen on the GamePad, players pilot multiple vehicles through intergalactic levels with Fox and his classic crew. The game launches exclusively for Wii U on April 22 and will feature amiibo compatibility. More details will be revealed at a later time."
But with Twilight Princess HD on March 4th and Pokkén Torunament on March 18th (and perhaps Mario & Sonic nearby) the schedule for exclusive titles has been really squeezed together, with both the rest of Q1 and late spring now looking a little barren.
This, as pretty much any other Wii U-related news lately, has sparked new rumours regarding potential plans for the new console, NX. Is Nintendo indeed planning its announcement for late April-early May with a big unveiling during June's E3? Nintendo's console calendar certainly looks a little empty between Star Fox Zero and The Legend of Zelda Wii U, which is expected in the autumn.
