Star Fox Wii U playable at E3, features GamePad cockpit view
Star Fox for Wii U should be playable at this year's E3, according to what Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto told Smosh. A good sign that the game will make its intended launch later this year.

Miyamoto also detailed that the game will utilize the GamePad's touchscreen as the ship's cockpit view, while the television will display the Arwing in third-person. "One of the things that we're doing is, often times in games you have the cinema scenes where it's a movie that's playing and you have to just sit back and watch. There's no gameplay," said Miyamoto. "But because we have the GamePad with the second screen, what we can do is have these cinematic sequences in the game where you're still able to look around and play."

During a pre-recorded segement for The Game Awards, Miyamoto said Star Fox for Wii U would be out before the next Legend of Zelda, also expected to be available this year.
