In an interview with the Time magazine, the famous video game creator, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that Star Fox Zero will include a game mode with invincibility to make things easier for novice players.
This does not mean that Star Fox Zero will be a completely casual game as, likewise, the developer also said that this issuance will also feature a game mode for experts.
“There’ll be a way for them to get an invincible Arwing, so that they can fly through and see the levels,” Miyamoto said. “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,” he added.
In addition, Miyamoto took the opportunity to talk about and explain their point of view regarding the difficulty in video games:
“Part of the fun of taking on a challenge is that the challenge has to be a hurdle that you overcome,” said the creator. “Lowering the hurdle doesn’t necessarily mean that the challenge will be fun. What’s fun is you mastering the skill and having that sense of accomplishment—of achieving something that’s difficult”
“Particularly with Star Fox Zero, if you try to complete this game, I think you’re going to find it to be quite challenging,” said Miyamoto. “We have things like Star Fox Guard and the cooperative mode in this game. What those do, is allow people who maybe can’t deal with that level of challenge or difficulty to easily be a part of the gameplay and enjoy this universe.”
Remember that, Star Fox Zero will be available exclusively on Wii U from this April 22.
