Kamiya's Star Fox would be god tier incredible. I should write Nintendo a letter.

If he did actually end up making it, I'm sure he would leave out all the BS added to Star Fox Assault.

Sakurai is a super video game nerd, he's probably just there to look at their games as the article suggests. Would be cool if this was related to Smash or something else but I really doubt it.

Awww... I really really want a Platinum Games StarFox.

Hell, does Platinum Games ever make profit on their titles? Wouldn't they like a nice home being owned by a publisher looking to re-establish cred with the hardcore gaming base?

Wait, so do we want Retro or Platinum to make Star Fox Wii U? We need to pick one.

stated Kamiya after learning that Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto has expressed a desire for a brand new Star Fox title.
So.. is it actually in development (Retro?) or are they thinking about it?

It's probably more that Sakurai is good friends with a lot of industry people (as evidenced by, well, the last ten years) and was likely visiting friends.

Maybe a friend that had a canceled game.
Stop living up to your tag!

But yeah that's probably what happened. I seem to remember reading a while ago that Kamiya and Sakurai were good friends.

Sakurai is definitely well connected. It seems like a lot of the younger well known Japanese designers are all bros with each other.
