Star Fox in development for Wii U

At the end of its Nintendo digital event, creative head Shigeru Miyamoto appeared to tease a Star Fox project currently in development for the Wii U.

Polygon reports that Miyamoto showed off the project at an pre-E3 event last night. It's one of three special projects Miyamoto is personally taking on to showcase the GamePad's utility. In the demo, the Arwing fighter could transform into a tank, and players were tasked with keeping track of both the TV and the GamePad screen to navigate while shooting, and using tilt controls. Miyamoto acknowledges that they were showing it in an early state, but said he wanted to show it to motivate the team to "complete the game as quickly as possible."
