Many believe that Nintendo’s Wii U console is near its expiration date and, with reports of Nintendo to announce information on their new home console the NX, that may be the case. However, the Wii U is still a worthy console to own in 2015 and beyond based on what Nintendo showed at their EB Expo booth.
Nintendo had a variety of games on display at this year’s EB Expo. Games like Star Fox Zero reimagined the ‘Nintendo charm’ while other games, such as the Wii U sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles X and the spiritual successor to Fatal Frame, Project Zero: Maiden of the Black Water, proved that the console has a broader appeal.
Star Fox Zero is much like the Nintendo 64’s (and 3DS port’s) Star Fox. Players control Fox McCloud as he and his team defend the world from galactic turmoil. Environments are strategically placed to manoeuvre and avoid in game. You find not much time to admire the art style and graphics of Star Fox Zero since the game is so fast-paced.
