A tweet from NCL provides additional control options for the big Wii U title.
Word about Star Fox Zero's control options may have come down from the president of Nintendo himself.
Satoru Iwata has been tweeting from the account of Nintendo Company Ltd this week in Japanese. One of his tweets is listed below:
[岩田]『スターフォックス ゼロ』のジャイロ操作はオンオフ切替できますが、『Splatoon』でジャイロ操作の可能性を感じていただけた方もいると思いますので、アーウィンとの一体感をお楽しみ頂けることを期待しています。#Iwatter— 任天堂株式会社 (@Nintendo) June 17, 2015
The tweet confirms that the same options will be in Star Fox Zero as in Splatoon, meaning the motion control can be disabled. It also mentions that the motion control is designed to give a sense of being connected to the Arwing in motion. The current E3 demo only has the motion, but the final version will have the choice.
