A fact picked up on numerous news websites today, Mr. Yusuke Hashimoto, Platinum Games Director, and co-developer of Star Fox Zero, answered a tweet by Jordan Sweeto on August 16th.

.@PG_y_hashimoto Can we expect to see Krystal in Star Fox Zero at all?
To which, Mr. Hashimoto replied:
@JordanSweeto She won't show up this time, but I'd love to put her in a sequel if we'd get to make one!
So, an 11 year-old Krystal will NOT be in Star Fox Zero (expected), and Platinum would love to continue working on the Star Fox series (EXCELLENT!). Star Fox Adventures "reimagining" perhaps? :P
Thanks to all who reported this, and a special thanks to 'earth being' for finding it first.
