A round of internet leaks has suggested Nintendo's Retro Studios - developer of the Metroid Prime trilogy - is working on a Star Fox racing spin-off.
PlayStation 4 exclusive Ratchet & Clank has topped the UK all-format charts - and has become the first game in Sony's long-running series to do so.
But Nintendo's Wii U exclusive Star Fox Zero fared less well - it only made the chart's sixth place.
To put the new Ratchet & Clank's success into perspective, it now has the highest UK launch sales of the series by some margin. It has tripled the release week total of the franchise's previous best release week, for Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time on PS3.
Platinum Games president Tatsuya Minami has departed the company, the developer has now announced.
It's happened again. Nintendo has suffered another UK stock heist.
N64 classic Star Fox 64 swoops onto the Wii U Virtual Console this Thursday.
The game's regular price is £8.99, but Star Fox 64 is discounted to £4.49 for its first month on sale (until 21st April).
Its arrival comes ahead of the all-new Star Fox Zero for Wii U, which arrives on 22nd April.
Star Fox Zero includes an invincible mode for players new to the series, Nintendo design chief Shigeru Miyamoto has said.
Wii U exclusive Star Fox Zero finally has a release date - 22nd April in the UK.
In a surprise move, Nintendo also re-announced Project Guard, a Wii U tech demo designed by Shigeru Miyamoto which was shown off back at E3 two years ago.
It's now called Star Fox: Guard and stars Slippy, along with his uncle Grippy. (Yes, seriously). The gameplay looks largely the same, where you must make your way past a screen full of security cameras.
The latest Star Fox Zero footage has revealed several graphical improvements added to the sci-fi shooter since Nintendo last showed it off.
Star Fox Zero is now slated for an April release on Wii U, Nintendo announced today during its latest Nintendo Direct presentation. It was originally scheduled for next week before a last-minute delay pushed it back into the ether of "2016".
Wii U exclusive Star Fox Zero has been delayed into 2016, following an eleventh hour decision by top designer Shigeru Miyamoto.
Star Fox Zero and Mario Tennis: Ultra both launch for Wii U on 20th November in Europe.
That's the same week as Star Wars: Battlefront.
The announcement comes as part of a flurry of release information for many of Nintendo's remaining 2015 titles.
UPDATE: Star Fox Zero won't have any online multiplayer.
The Legend of Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto and series director Eiji Aonuma showed off the upcoming Wii U Zelda at tonight's The Game Awards.
UPDATE 12/6/14 #2 3.15pm Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto has appeared live on stage at E3 2014 to demo his two new IPs - Project Guard and Project Giant Robot.
