Since Star Fox Command was released on the DS last August (check out our review here), Star Fox fans have bee salivating for some Wii love. The game's producer, Takaya Imamura, has hinted that Wii might be the next destination for the popular series.
In an exclusive VIP interview withNintendo of Europe (registration required to view), when asked if a Wii version of Star Fox was likely, Imamura replies: "I wonder how the adventure of Fox and friends is going to go next time?! I have come up with some idea in my mind but it is still just a small one. I will try my best so that I can deliver it to you some time!"
Of course, Fox McCloud setting a course for Wii wouldn't be surprising in the slightest - it is a long-running Nintendo fan favorite, after all - but that doesn't detract from the fact that battling to save the Lylat System using Wii's wii-mote would be something to look forward to with starry-eyed optimism.
Those who want to see Fox in his natural environment should check out WarioWare: Smooth Moves. One of the 200-plus minigames happens to be the SNES Star Fox, controlled with the Remote and everything.
