While many of Nintendo's long-running series have gotten new entries in the last few years, the Star Fox series hasn't received one since 2006's Star Fox Command. It's now 2010, and there's been no word on a new game in the series.
The series started back on the Super NES in 1993, and had a sequel in the works which was eventually canceled as the Nintendo 64 began to loom. The series is most well-known for Star Fox 64, released in 1997, which was incredibly advanced for its time and influenced many of the games released around that time.
Earlier, when gaming website GamesTM had told Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto they wanted to see a new Star Fox game, he said "me too". It looks like Nintendo might have a interested developer for the game, as Platinum Games game developer Hideki Kamiya, most well-known for designing Bayonetta and the Wii version of Okami, said in a tweet on his personal Twitter account: "I want someone from Nintendo to come to Platinum, point a gun and say, "You people make the the new Star Fox game.".
No word from Nintendo, but it sounds like there's a developer waiting for them if they're interested.
