As teased quite recently Nintendo has released an animated prequel short for the upcoming Star Fox Zero, titled The Battle Begins, and it’s animated by some fantastic studios.
Produced in collaboration by series creator Shigeru Miyamoto and animation studios Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell, Haikyu!!, Psycho-Pass) and Studio Wit (HAL, Attack on Titan), the short focuses on Fox, Falco, Slippy and Peppy as they fight to protect Corneria from the fearsome villain Andross’ army. I wasn’t sold on the art when I initially saw screenshots for it, but it looks far nicer in motion and I wouldn’t be against seeing more of it.
Star Fox Zero releases exclusively on Wii U in both Europe and North America on 22nd April, and on the 23rd in Australasia. If you live in Japan, you can go pick it up now!
