Hello there! My name is Akinori Sao and I’m a writer who‘s filled with joy every time I hear the Star Fox theme. But anyway, let’s turn now to the final part – the last level, if you will –of our Star Fox Zero interview. Mr Miyamoto spoke in our last interview about working as a director for the first time in 20 years with boyish glee.
Now, for this final discussion, we’re going to look at the development process and find out what a veteran director like Mr Miyamoto and a young rookie like Mr Hayashi set out to achieve with Star Fox Zero. Naturally we’re also going to talk about Star Fox Guard which was released together with the Star Fox Zero, as well as a short animation that you can watch online. Okay, here goes!

Miyamoto: For me, the most important thing was feeling as if you were really the pilot.
