Star Fox 64 has been out for the Wii U in Japan and Europe for several months now, although the game finally reaches North American shores tomorrow.
Nintendo announced that North Americans will finally be able to play Star Fox 64 on their Wii U consoles on January 19th, 2017. It can be downloaded digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
The game can be played in a variety of ways. You can use the Gamepad, Pro controller, Wii remotes or Wii remote with classic controller.
The game is regarded by many to be the best in the Star Fox series. Sadly, the latest addition called Star Fox Zero did not live up to the high expectations from fans. Hopefully down the line a Nintendo Switch version of Star Fox blows people away.
