Star Fox Zero has a release date of April 22, 2016 exclusively for Wii U. Finally reviving the adventures of Fox, Falco, Slippy and Peppy Hare for the first time since Star Fox 64! Notwithstanding previous Star Fox games of course, like Star Fox Command (2006, DS), Star Fox Assault (GameCube, 2005) and Star Fox Adventures (2002, GameCube); While they were all good, they lacked the Miyamoto touch & Nintendo pedigree. So in effect, this is the first TRUE Star Fox we’ve seen in a long time. If you missed the 64 version, it was recently re-released as Star Fox 64 3D for 3DS in 2012.

Check out this all-new Star Fox Zero Cast Introduction & Gameplay video.

    Team Star Fox Arrives On Wii U For A New Adventure
    An evil empire has risen and the Lylat system is in danger. As legendary space pilot Fox McCloud, blast through an onslaught of enemy forces to bring peace to the galaxy. In this white-knuckle space shooter, it’ll take more than luck to master the Arwing jet, the Gyrowing flight drone, and the Landmaster tank! You have what it takes. Now prove it.

    General Pepper needs your help! Use your TV’s cinematic view to fly and identify targets and see through the eyes of Fox with the Wii U GamePad’s screen as you lock onto enemies and fire. You’ll also have to use advanced flight techniques like boosting and barrel rolls to survive the relentless assault.

    With the help of the rest of Team Star Fox, tackle missions in the air and on the ground in a variety of planets teeming with enemies. Then engage vast armadas of powerful ships in outer space dogfights. Master your craft, defy the odds, and earn your face-to-face meeting with Andross. Only you can restore peace to the galaxy!

    Check out this incredible CG trailer for Star Fox Zero!

    Star Fox Zero looks absolutely fantastic!

    Seeing Fox, Peppy, Slippy & Falco in action again, along with cool all-new characters like “Direct-i” (what a great name for the lil guy!), makes me giddy with excitement!

    I remember when the first SNES Star Fox game and Star Fox 64 came out. They were spellbinding! The newer games have not been able to match the awe you got when you originally played a Star Fox game.

    However, I believe this game will finally bring back that awe for the new generation who has never played a Star Fox game before!

    Just seeing those new animations for Fox, Peppy, Falco & Slippy from inside their ships (during the CG intro in the above video); makes my heart aflutter!

      This is cool but I was hoping that this Star Fox game would play more like Star Fox Assault

    • HEYYYY! It’s someone who likes Star Fox Assault! 😀 I never played Star Fox Assault, but the reviews pointed towards it being a good game, but not to the caliber one would expect/hope. I remember the mulitplayer mode was pretty panned. I think Star Fox Zero really goes back-to-basics, while also adding innovation. Being able to fly in one direction and shoot in another is the kind of idea that only Miyamoto could come up with and pull off… just my opinion though. What rating would you give Star Fox Assault? Out of 10? Did you ever play Star Fox Command for DS? That game got good reviews too, but it was overlooked by a lot of people. I think Star Fox Zero is the first Star Fox game to really capture the high caliber of the original Star Fox & Star Fox 64.

      I would give Star Fox Assault 10 out of 10 for just being an awesome game, plus I think its better than Star Fox 64. Star Fox Command is a good game. It plays alot like Star Fox 2 except for the multiplayer mode, plus I like that Star Fox Zero has the arwing transformation back.

    • Very nice. I definitely will have to check out Star Fox Assault. It seems to be a very overlooked hidden gem for the lil ol’ GameCube. And I can’t wait for Star Fox Zero on Wii U! Hey Supermcawsomevill, did you ever play Star For Adventures for GameCube? What’d you think of that game?

    • Supermcawsomevill

      Star Fox Adventures is not a bad game. It like a Star Fox version of a Legend of Zelda game. By the end of the game it makes you wanting more. I would give Star Fox Adventures a 7 out of 10. Plus this game gives us the first appearance of Krystal.
