Nintendo’s Star Fox Zero for the Wii U console has now been rated over in Australia. The listing for the game also mentions it will have “online interactivity” of some sort too.
Star Fox Zero has been rated as “PG” and the consumer advice states: Mild Themes and violence, online interactivity. The online part could mean anything at this point. It could be leaderboards or something to do with Miiverse. Hopefully we will know more closer to the game’s release date.
It was confirmed a while back that there were no plans for any online multiplayer mode. The official Star Fox Zero website a few weeks back also mentioned that “broadband Internet access required for online features“. This new rating from Australia just further confirms some online component will be added in the final game.
In terms of violence and themes, the impact of both of them are just mild. This is the only content that parents have to look out for when buying the game. The game obviously has no bad language, drug use, nudity or sex. Most Nintendo games are kid friendly anyway apart from a few exceptions.
Star Fox Zero will be released from April 22nd, 2016 exclusively for the Wii U console. The game is finally coming out since it was delayed from its original late 2015 release window.
