Speaking to IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that upcoming Wii U space shooter Star Fox Zero will not feature an online multiplayer mode. Here is Miyamoto-san's reasoning for this not entirely surprising omission:
So, we're really prioritising getting this new game playing at 60 frames-per-second. In previous Star Fox games we had focused a lot on dogfighting, but here we're really focused more the single-player experience.
Of course, as we continue on and once people get a feeling for the game... as the process continues if we find that we do think it'd be really good we'll definitely consider it, but right now we're not.
What do you think of this news? Are you glad that Star Fox Zero is more focused on the single-player experience and a smooth framerate, or do you think this is a missed opportunity?
