Hey Guys, this topic is sort of a fan request, but i have strong reasons why Starfox should continue on Wii or DS. Before i begin i'll do a quick retrospective (for those who aren't familiar with the Starfox Series while at the same time i made it spoiler free, while veterans just skip this part and head over to my Story part of the topic):
1. Starfox for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System was not only the first home console 3D game but also the first 3D arcade style Shooter.
2. Starfox 64 for the Nintendo 64 is a remake of the first game, but with added content, plot twist, new characters and a new multiplayer mode which compare to the first game was a huge upgrade, it's also note that Starfox on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System also had a direct sequel planned aka Starfox 2 but was cancelled do to the remake dresstic change and later introduced character was ported to the remake not all do.
3. Starfox Adventures Dinosaur Planet for the Nintendo Gamecube was the first true sequel of the series introducing a continue story from the privies game, new characters like Krystal along with borrowing elements from other Nintendo franchises mostly from Zelda since the Game play Similar to a Legend Of Zelda Game, at the same it's the only Starfox game with such a dresstic change.
4. Starfox Assault also for the Nintendo Gamecube a some what direct sequel to Starfox Adventures Dinosaur Planet taking place one year after Dinosaur and several (unnumbered) years after Starfox/ Starfox 64. It's also the least favorite among critics and fans. But my personal favorite since they did update the multiplayer aspect of the series in a huge way compared to Starfox 64. The Single Player mode however was to linear and offer least replay value compare to privies installments, this was the primarily reason why some didn't like it as much other Starfox games.
Starfox Command for the Nintendo DS the last game released so far as of this day (January 17 2010), the game was released on August 2006 in the US and January 2007 in EU so depending where you lived this last Starfox appeared 3 and a half Years ago or 3 Years ago. The Game took place many years (again) after Assualt it's also followed a non-linear path threw the Single Player mode and Multipule Endings (Starfox 64 for example had 2 deferring endings), but privies Starfox games didn't had such a deep constructed multipule ending as Command in fact this might hint that Nintendo could have put an end to the series, at the same time, it was also the first in the series to feature online Multiplayer.
So far the best in series i considered Starfox 64 while the two Gamecube sequels as well the DS sequel is some what mixed of who you ask is agreat Starfox follow up to Starfox 64 also i myself have yet to play Starfox on the SNES so until Nintendo Release the SNES version on VC i can't really say noting about it, as for Starfox 64 it's on the Wii Virtual Console highly recommend downloading if you like either Arcade Style Shooting, re-experience a classic or if your interested in the series.
Story: (kinda spoiling)The series has follow a straight path with each new installment, in other words there hasn't been a prequel nor a spin-off compared to a Mario, Zelda, Metroid and Pokemon game (just to name a few) unless you count in Super Smash Bros series along with the series that is, anyway so if Starfox command really is the last in the story or required a huge backtracking story to fill in the next installment then it's time for Prequels and Spin-off's.
Where can i fit them?Well let's go a bit off topic in the Metroid series, when Retro Studios and Nintendo when and make Metroid Prime series they use the huge gap between Metroid 1 on the NES and Metroid 2 Return of Samus on the Game Boy the fill what happen (Story part) beteewn the two games however there still might be more Metroid games released before Metroid 2 in terms of story telling while the New Other M looks like a prequel to the entire series. My point is a lot has happen between Starfox 64 and Starfox Adventures Dinosaur Planet in terms of story and setting same can be set between Star Fox Assault and Starfox Command.
How do i know this? (heavy Spoiling)Well in Starfox 64 Fox McCloud looks like he's in his late Teen or early 20's and in a rookie a style rank of a newly established Starfox team after his father died, while Slippy Toad and Falco Lombardi looks in a similar fashion, while Peppy Hare might have been in his 40th's do to well been part of the original Starfox team headed by James McCloud, in Star Fox Adventures Dinosaur Planet all these character looks like they matured and Peppy Hare looks like someone in his 70's in my opinion anyway plus the Greatfox looks like a rundown old ship and if that doesn't get your attention or reaction of a possibility you skip a Starfox game i don't know then.
What about Falco you say? (Heavy Spoiling Continues)Well in Japan Nintendo released a Manga based the events from Starfox 64 key leading event towards Starfox Adventures Dinosaur Planet titled: "Star Fox: Farewell, Beloved Falco" . This Manga explained exactly what happen to Falco and at the end of Dinosaur Planet Falco rejoins the Starfox Team. This Manga was only released in Japan when Purchasing Starfox Adventures Dinosaur Planet and in my opinion like Microsoft's own IP HALO (HALO Reach referred to a HALO novel). This can become it's own game just as long it's an 3D arcade style shooter and followed the plot exactly or exploited more, a solid non-linear Single Player mode and a Strong Multiplayer Mode both Online and Local. This can easily become a Starfox Wii game even there's no Krystal in my opinion it wouldn't hurt the series after all we want a solid new Starfox game with original four Starfox team. And if it sell strong enough Nintendo can easily squeeze two more games or so after it creating a brand new Starfox Trilogy just like they did with Metroid Prime series.
Multiplayer:With the exception of Super Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii can anyone here name a strong Nintendo/ first party competitive online Multiplayer Wii game? (animal Crossing City Folk isn't competitive but it does fit everything else i say do and i mean Wii only title so no Dr Mario Online RX) While Nintendo could make a Metroid Multiplayer game maybe on the Wii (similar to Metroid Prime Hunters) or you could say Pokemon Battle Revolution or even Mario Striker Charged (Football in EU title), my point is i guess those counts to but not as deep as Super Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii fanbase/ replay value to make it so enjoyable after month's/years of playing the same game, Starfox has that potential, each Starfox game that had multiplayer feature me and my friend plays day in and day out like Mario Kart you never get bored since there so many players online constantly trying to out best one and other and like Super Smash Bros Brawl it could turn into Worldwide Tournament constantly trying to improve your skills and it has the same potential Multiplayer like Feature found in Mario Kart Wii plus Goldeneye style Multiplayer Maps (in a third or first view) in which Fox or any other character ( i believe the series has over 25 deferent characters) can go in a Arwing, Landmaster tank or on foot or even set exclusive maps for Arwing or Landmaster tank or all the Vehicles including submarine one (i forgot it's name). While having an online leader board of who has the highest score in the single player mode of each course they taken and medals.
Conclusion:A new Starfox game can be a deference maker of how anyone here spend more time playing Wii and Starfox 64 alone was to many N64 fans like myself a series as awesome as Mario and Zelda series plus it's sells almost as much as them. As for developers if your short on them i think Retro Studios can make such a game possible after all they did a awesome job on the Metroid Series, plus combined with Nintendo EAD and R&D team they can definitely make series into whole new example of how 3D arcade shooters should be made. As for Nintendo's thought's on a new Starfox game that's all depends if it's demand is high enough like Golden Sun or Sin of Punishment to reappear.
So what did you think about my ideas about a new Starfox game? Let me know in the comments below.

I don't have time to read all of the paragraphs above, but I do agree that Nintendo should make a new Starfox game.

Reads more like a explanation of what Starfox is than why it should be continued, also whether it get the wii owners out there playing more, maybe some, but the consumer base has broadend somewhat, so how many wii owners would be interested in a shooter who knows, maybe Sin & Punishments success or lack there off, will help give an indacation.

You might want to look into trimming your post length down. A lot of people just skip over posts that are overly long.

Especially when you can sum up that entire thing in one sentence.<_<

Because most Nintendo fans, including myself, want one.
That is why.
Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

I'd certainly like to see a new Starfox, I still count Starfox 64 as one of my all time favorite games. The problem is that subsequent sequels have really struggled to live up to that game. Adventures wasn't really a starfox game but merely had some of the characters from the series uncomfortably shoehorned in. Assault was ok but suffered from having too many poorly implemented on-foot sections, and somewhat uninspiring level design compared to the first two games. I never got into the DS version at all, the touch screen controls were a poor substitute for an analogue stick in my opinion.
Anyway a new Starfox game with branching level paths, plenty of Arwing missions with perhaps an interspersing of ground missions and a good mutiplayer would prove very popular with Nintendo fans I believe.

You have fans ? Cool I guess. Yes they should make a new Starfox game, but I am not reading all that crap.

Well i notice some of you hate my long statement that's cool but the truth is since Nintendolife is such a huge Nintendo fan website i won't be surprised if Nintendo themselves see this website time to time and read popular blog's on what Nintendo fans want. As for my over doing habit well it's probably wouldn't stop anytime soon.

Seriously. Is it a rule to have bad grammar when making topics?
"Why Nintendo should CONSIDER making a new Starfox game" please. Edit first post and change--I tire of reading such constant lazy errors.

Well I read most of it. Interesting concept to make it in between 64 and Adventures. I guess I never realized that the whole StarFox series are merely sequels to the previous installment. Perhaps it is in production as StarFox is one of the franchises that appeals most to the hardcore players. Well see, I would buy it though day one.

I seriously doubt Miyamoto has ever been interupted with a "hey check what such & such are saying on NL", so chances are Nintendo really aren't hanging on our every word afterall.

Their two uppermost thoughts are likely to be 'can we do it WELL?' and 'will it sell?'
