Speaking with TIME, "Star Fox Zero" producer and famed Nintendo director Shigeru Miyamoto discussed several details about the upcoming game. While a lot of it was known already, the one major thing revealed with the article was that there will be an invincible Arwing mode for those having trouble with the game.
And then beyond those modes, we have additional ones for people who like the game but find it too hard to get past certain levels. So for instance there’ll be a way for them to get an invincible Arwing, so that they can fly through and see the levels. But at the same time, we’re also preparing modes for Star Fox fans looking for an even harder challenge, such as a ship that does more damage, but which also takes more damage.
Functioning similarly to the White Tanooki suit from the "Super Mario Bros." series, this mode is completely optional while there are increasingly difficult modes for veterans to tackle.
"Star Fox Zero" is slated to release on the Wii U (whether it'll re-release on the NX is up for debate) on April 21, 2016 for Japan and worldwide on April 22. The retail version of the game comes with "Star Fox Guard," the defense-grid style game starring Slippy the Toad, will be available either to purchase and download digitally or free with the retail version of the game.
