Nintendo celebrates Star Fox Zero with animated short The Battle Begins0 Comments
Some might say its silly, others might call it senseless, but the fact remains that Nintendo has indeed made an animated short based on Star Fox Zero, and it's a surprisingly enjoyable twist on a fan-favorite series.
Many fans were left to suffer when it was announced last year that the release of Star Fox Zero would be delayed. Time crawls ever forward, of course, and the game is finally making its debut just later today. This animated film, called Star Fox Zero - The Battle Begins, is sort of a celebration of the title, and it serves to set up the story featured in the game.
Featuring a distinctly cool art style and memorable music, and produced in collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto himself, The Battle Begins sees the crew chilling about the Great Fox when calamity strikes. An alert is sounded from Corneria, the team leaps into action, and from there the story blends into the sort of action featured in the game.
The short film manages to have a few nods to long-time players as well as the Star Fox Zero game, so I won't divulge too many details here, but it's a quick and delightful film sure to please fans of the Star Fox series. Check it out above.
