Project Guard landing on Wii U next month with a Star Fox makeover

Sigeru Miyamoto’s Project Guard is still very much a thing, but is getting a fresh infusion of Star Fox’ own Slippy Toad for its Wii U launch.

I must have been in a fog, because I either didn’t know what Project Guard was or totally forgot all about it. Either way, it’s a surprise that the game is hitting the Wii U in short order.

Landing on the Nintendo console next month, Project Guard basically casts players as a security guard. Now called Star Fox Guard (inventive!), the title will set you up as Slippy Toad, one of Fox’ longtime wingmen, who’s helping out his uncle Grippy (who I guess owns a warehouse?).

Gamers must navigate the game’s environments from the GamePad only, while other players shout out where you’re supposed to be shooting by watching a four-way split screen of monitors on the TV itself. It sounds interesting, if a little convoluted.

We’ll find out about the novel gameplay soon enough though, as Star Fox Guard is set to arrive digitally (on the eShop for the Wii U) on April 22nd.

  1. I thought the Project Giant Robot from the same year’s E3 was the far stronger of the two, and looked freaking hilarious. I hope there are still plans to bring that title to fruition.
    Guard, on the other hand, seems like it could be fun, but doesn’t look involved enough to really keep a room full of people interested for very long. I’ll give it a go when StarFox launches, though, if only because that’s the only real Multiplayer mode on offer. And that’s a real shame.

    Side note: this comment system is way better than what we had before!

  2. I haven’t seen that either! I’m in the dark on these things for some reason lol
