Behold the glory of the Star Fox Zero anime


Barrel Rolls aplenty

Star Fox is back, folks! And it seems back in a way that explicitly recalls the glory days of SNES-based 3D games and peppy animal-people bloodlessly fighting other animal-people. If nothing else, that Saturday morning cartoon vibe is what Wit Studio and Production I.G. (the folks that brought you Attack on Titan) are going for with their anime short promoting Star Fox Zero, the new Wii U game from Platinum Games. 

Nintendo streamed the episode earlier, and the company's posted the video on Youtube for all and sundry to enjoy. Check out Fox McCloud and his elite crew of ne'er-do-wells as they save Corneria from the grumpy villain Andross in their spiffy Arwing starfighters. Those hungering for a more gamey look at Star Fox Zero can check out some footage of the game in the credits, as well as the full review from our pals at Destructoid.
