Star Fox News
- September 20, 2013 - Nintendo's former president and largest shareholder, Hiroshi Yamauchi, has passed away yesterday due to complications from pneumonia. He was 85 years old at the time. Yamauchi is regarded as a key figure among video game historians, transforming Nintendo from a playing card manufacturer to a gaming hardware/software developer and publisher, and leading the company during the 1980s in a revolutionary direction, consequently changing the gaming industry to as it is known today. Yamauchi stepped down as Nintendo's president in 2002, personally leaving his company's care to current president Satoru Iwata. At the time of this death, his fortunes, net worth at $2.1 billion, made him the 13th most richest man in Japan. He is survived by his three children, who now own divisions of his stake of the company. Hiroshi Yamauchi was credited as executive producer for Star Fox, Star Fox 64, and Star Fox Adventures. Ironically, despite dealing a business in them, he was always known to have hated video games and never played any of them, and was better known as a avid gamer in the Oriental board game Go.
- March 15, 2013 - In an interview with Nintendo Chronicle, Collin van Ginkel, co-founder of indie studio Two Tribes, notable for its Toki Tori series, has claimed that they "could make a damn fine Star Fox game for Wii U. Yes, a classic Star Fox game would be awesome to work on." Two Tribes marks as the third developer, after Retro Studios and Platinum Games, that is willingly volunteering to develop a new game based on the Star Fox IP license. It still a wonder why Nintendo, owner and publisher of said license, has not taken up any of the developers' offers as of yet.
