Shigeru Miyamoto, game designer of first-party Wii U title Star Fox Zero, turns to Facebook to announce that the game is not scheduled to release in November.

Star Fox Zero's release date is rescheduled to first quarter of 2016.

With the announcement, it turns out that the only remaining game from Nintendo to be released before the end of the year is Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival.

Another postponed game is Zelda which was originally planned to be released in 2015.

Miyamoto explained that while the game is ready on the technical aspect, it requires some further polishing to achieve a new style of play.

"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," said Miyamoto on a Facebook post.

Star Fox Zero features Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad in a new deep space dogfighting adventure. Players can enjoy the game in two different viewpoints while mounted on the Arwing. They can take aim and then shoot their enemies in one direction while they focus on their flying in a different direction. The result is a type of gameplay that's filled with a bunch of cinematic flight experience.

When needed, players can use the Arwing as a transformed Walker. Other new vehicles to look forward to are the Landmaster Tank and the Gyrowing, which is a drone-looking helicopter designed to hover and send out drones that players can manipulate on the GamePad.

Nintendo initially planned for a Nov. 20 release of the game which is right on time for the upcoming holiday season. While some fans may have felt upset about the news, there are a few of them who still believe that the decision for its postponement is understandable.

"A delayed game is eventually good, a rushed game is forever bad," said Facebook user Kyle Mitchell.

"I hope Krystal may be added to the game in some way. Maybe as the distress call at the end of the story! Take your time Mr. Miyamoto, you'll all do great," said Jordan Sweet in one of the comments to Miyamoto's announcement in Facebook.
