Miyamoto: 'Star Fox Zero is Not so Far From a VR Experience' - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 30 June 2015 / 4,166 Views
Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto has said that Star Fox Zero is not that far off a virtual reality experience, as the game uses the second screen on the GamePad.
"Thanks to the motion sensor and the second screen on the GamePad, Star Fox Zero is not so far from a VR experience," said Miyamoto. "Nintendo's principle was and is always to make games that people play together in front of the TV. I think Star Fox Zero is that. [But] if we someday do experiments in VR, there is the Star Fox brand [we could consider implementing]."
Miyamoto added that the controls for Star Fox Zero are more complex as players have to use both the TV and the screen on GamePad:
"There are many ways how video games entertain the player. One of these ways is the process of coming to understand how a game works – another is the process of mastering the controls. By mastering the controls, you improve, which results in having fun. Our intention was not that players suggest: 'There are two screens, that is making it complicated.' Instead: 'There are two screens, I can do different things on them.
It is hard to understand the basics if you just try Star Fox Zero for a few minutes at a games expo. But if people buy the game and play it at home, after one or two days, they will reach the point where they understand how it works and how to master it – that is the moment the fun begins."
