Star Fox 64 3D to use the 3DS’ gyroscope

News 3DS Shooter Nintendo

Thanks to the financial results briefing notes that were released today after the meeting was finished with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata we now know that a new, previously unannounced feature will be used in Star Fox 64 3D when it releases on July 14th in Japan. The feature that it will be using is the Gyro Sensor that is built into every 3DS hand held.

Unfortunately as these were only the notes there was no other information given as to how the gyroscope will actually be worked into gameplay though we can guess that it will allow the player to control Fox’s Arwing during gameplay but tilting a 3DS usually causes the 3D effects to not work properly so it is an odd inclusion to the title. We can expect more information soon from Nintendo about this feature and hopefully a release date for the rest of the world.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
