Sharp-eyed viewers will have already seen their addition teased in the Star Fox Zero gameplay emerging around E3 2015, but it has been confirmed that Star Wolf will return in the Wii U exclusive intergalactic dogfighter.
Developed in partnership with PlatinumGames, questions have been swirling around since the game’s appearance in the Nintendo Digital Event. This has resulted in the developer’s game designer Yusuke Hashimoto taking to Twitter to announce: “Star Wolf WILL return in StarFox Zero.”
Star Wolf are a mercenary group led by Wolf O’Donnell, who were initially aligned with the villainous Andross before he was destroyed in Star Fox 64. Remaining rivals to the more virtuous Star Fox team, O’Donnell was most recently joined by Leon Powalski and Panther Caroso on his illegal escapades.
However, Star Fox Zero gameplay footage has this week shown that original member Pigma Dengar is back, although he was expelled by Wolf in Star Fox: Assault.
Star Fox Zero will release exclusively for Wii U later this year.
