Starfox Zero delayed until 2016

Creator Shigeru Minamoto took to Facebook to make the announcement:

A Message from Mr. Miyamoto Regarding Star Fox Zero

I made a big decision last week.

We have been developing Star Fox Zero for Wii U with the aim of releasing it this year. Although we felt that the development had been progressing well, we now believe that we will need a little more time to work on areas such as the unprecedented discovery that we want players to experience in the game by using two screens, and further polishing the level designs and perfecting the tone of the cut scenes. While we have already reached the stage where it would be technically possible to release the title in time for the year-end holiday season, we want to polish the game a bit more so that players will be able to more smoothly grasp the new style of play that we are proposing.

To the people looking forward to the launch of the game this holiday season, I am very sorry.

Star Fox Zero is going to bring new game play and experiences that take it far beyond the framework established by Star Fox 64. All the members of the development team are doing our best so that the final product will not betray your expectations. And the game will not be delayed for a very long time – we’re aiming to launch the game in Q1 2016. Please stay tuned for further announcements.

Rayman Legends' "second demo exclusive to Wii U" morphs into free online challenge mode available April

You may have heard that the upcoming Rayman Legends for the Wii U, had recently been delayed until September, and also was no longer going to be a Wii U exclusive. Well, the uproar from the community was, shall we say, quite vocal.

Ubisoft offered us a "second demo", which at the time, without any details, seemed like a slap in the face. However, today they made clear what that new demo would entail, and it's quite a bit more interesting:

The next demo will feature the Online Challenge Mode, which will have new challenges added every week, plus you can play against your friends online. The devs noted that they will be playing as well, so we'll have to work hard to beat them!

The video also explains how they are going to continue to add content to the game, given the additional time that they have, and that they'll be sharing more about that in the future.

All this will be free, so from April until September this will be available on the Wii U at no cost. Is this a case of Ubisoft doing right by it's fans? Perhaps the developers were able to make their case to the company brass to get this out there? In any case, I'll be checking it out for sure, and it will make the wait a little more bearable.
