StarFox Zero – Dev Team Interview: Part Two

Part Two: New Vehicles Broaden the Scope of the Gameplay

Sao: In Star Fox Zero, Fox McCloud’s ship can transform, and this is a major part of the gameplay.

Miyamoto: Yes, in this title, the Arwing can turn into the Walker, which can travel on land. The idea for this goes right back to the legendary Star Fox 2 which was in development for Super Nintendo but got cancelled once we knew the Nintendo 64 was on the way. In Star Fox 2, you could transform into a robot in order to get into narrow spaces like enemy battleships. Now in this new title, you can press the A Button whenever you like and turn your ship into the Walker.

Hayashi: But actually in the new game, you can play using the original Walker that was developed for the long-lost Star Fox 2.

Sao: Huh? What do you mean?

Hayashi: Well, if you tap a Fox McCloud amiibo on the Wii U GamePad, you’ll be able to use an Arwing from the Super Nintendo era...

I didn't know you could use Direct-I to fish in Zoness.

Also:

"I was the one who originally said he wanted to make Star Fox, so I guess I had no choice but to decide how it was going to be made."

So yeah, seems like the comitee at Nintendo has lost interest in this franchise and it'll require pressure from one of the higher ups to ever get another one.

At the very least I'm glad I liked the latest one, it's a better way to go than Assault or Command.
