Star Fox Zero on Switch? For PlatinumGames, it all depends on Nintendo and Miyamoto

From the columns of VideoGamesChronicle, PlatinumGames boss Atsushi Inaba recalled the collaboration with Nintendo for the development of Star Fox Zero on Wii U and said he was ready to revive that project through a Remaster, a Remake or a real reboot to launch on Switch.

During the interview, Inaba was more than willing to strengthen the partnership with the Kyoto house to develop a “new” Star Fox Zero on Nintendo Switch. The exponent of PlatinumGames explains in fact that “it is not nice that people are not able to play the older titles because they are blocked off the platform, so obviously if it were possible I would like to return to that game to bring it back to the newer platforms. But for Star Fox Zero, the most important thing to remember is that it’s a Nintendo IP, so every development idea or hypothesis comes from Miyamoto-san himself. “

In this regard, Inaba recalls the difficulties encountered by PlatinumGames in interacting directly with Shigeru Miyamoto to show him the Star Fox Zero project: “Mr. Hashimoto, at the time, was our director and was probably the person who had the most problems. in bringing our ideas to Mr. Miyamoto, because aside from the talk about his friendliness and personality he is still a giant in the industry and a person that many creators look to for inspiration. So yes, it always takes a lot of courage if you decide to go to him to share ideas or even just to receive feedback. Of course, at that time there were many discussions between Platinum and Nintendo, but if the opportunity arose to bring Star Fox Zero to Switch it would still be up to they decide what to do, and obviously we would respect their every choice “.
