New Star Fox Zero Footage Clip Released

With Star Fox Zero now having an official release date we can expect to be getting a lot more information from here on out, and now Nintendo has released a new video clip showing off just under a minute of new footage.

While the clip is brief and in Japanese, It’s not exactly rocket science to figure out what’s going on and realize that the game is shaping up very nicely. As a Star Fox fan since the 90’s Zero ticking all of the right boxes and will hopefully put this once beloved franchise back on the right track.

Star Fox Zero will launch exclusively for the Wii U on April 22nd, 2016.

Star Fox Zero Launching April 22nd, 2016

After delays that had Star Fox Zero missing its Q4 2015 release date, Nintendo has now given the game another solid release date for Wii U. As revealed during the Nintendo Direct stream, Star Fox Zero will launch on April 22nd, 2016.

As you can see above, the game also got a new trailer showing off more footage from the game. It doesn’t real give any big new revelations about the game, but fans are sure to get a kick out of it.

Star Fox Zero Pushed Back To Q1 2016

Looks like Star Fox won’t be under any Christmas trees this holiday season, as Nintendo has confirmed that Star Fox Zero has been delayed. While an official release date for the delay has not been given, they claim it is minor and is only being pushed back to Q1 2016.

The biggest reason for the delay is that they are introducing many more elements to the gameplay and its mechanics that go far beyond what was accomplished with Star Fox 64. As you may know, the game will utilize the gamepad that will serve as a sort of cockpit that you point at the TV screen to simulate flying. This sense of flying and the exploration that it brings has apparently opened some new doors that Miyamoto and the team want to capitalize on.

Star Fox Zero Box Art Revealed

The box art for the Wii U exclusive video game, Star Fox Zero, has been revealed and it looks a little off to me.

I’m not sure if it’s the realistic fur that they went for, but Fox looks really strange in this picture and kind of looks like he’s drunk or something. Peppy looks as worried has he ever does, while Falco (of course) is a complete bad ass.

Then there’s Slippy. Oh, Slippy.

Star Fox Zero is developed by Nintendo EAD Group No. 5 and Platinum Games and will launch on November 20th.
