The Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has shown interest in creating a Star Fox game for the Wii console in the future. Series designer, Takaya Imamura has also said he has some ideas for a sequel of Star Fox Command, and that he would try to deliver the game some time. It is speculated that this game will also reveal what is the real ending of Star Fox Command or if the game is canon at all. It was revealed that the president of Q-Games, Dylan Cuthbert, had expressed that he has no interest in developing a Star Fox game for the Wii console, as he suggested that the Wii, "[I]s a bit more of a toy..." Not to say that there will be no future Star Fox title for the Wii, but just that Cuthbert probably would not be involved in its development.
In August 2009, Turkish Nintendo news site Nintendocu.com reported that a Wii Star Fox game would be revealed in the upcoming issue of Nintendo Power, showing a blurry image claimed to be the issue's cover page. Titled "Star Fox Wii: Battle for Corneria", the game would allegedly implement Wii MotionPlus and would include an online battle mode with Wii Speak support. However, the Arwings and Great Fox displayed on the cover image were images from Star Fox: Assault. The same article updated its page three days after it was first published, and it added headline that declared the information about Nintendo Power revealing the next Star Fox was false. However, the same page also has evidence to show that Nintendo recently renewed the domain name "starfox.com", despite the fact that at that time, the URL still redirected to Nintendo's main portal.
It is unknown as of now if this is the remake of Star Fox 64 for the Nintendo 3DS: In September 2009, another Nintendo news site called Infendo published a minor article claiming that an anonymous tip was given that a next Star Fox game is most definitely in the works, without giving any more details.
Also, Hideki Kamiya, the creator of the Devil May Cry and Bayonetta series, and an avid Star Fox fan himself, had expressed interest in creating a new Star Fox game on the Wii articles of IGN.
In May 2010, DigitalNipples.com published a news article claiming that a next Star Fox game for the Wii will be unveiled at Nintendo's E3 2010 press conference. This, however, was false.
However, a remake of Star Fox 64 titled Star Fox 64 3D has been developed for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system. As well, the domain name "starfox.com" is now the website for the respective game. The status of Star Fox Wii remains completely unknown as of right now. However it is unlikey that a Star fox game would be released so late in the Nintendo Wii's lifespan, it is more likely that a new Star Fox game would be released on Nintendo's next home console, Wii U, which has been hinted towards in a post E3 2011 interview.
