The animated short was produced in collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto, WIT Studio, and Production I.G who are responsible for the work on Ghost in the Shell. The broadcast will start on April 20th at 3PM PST / 6PM EST and it will surely find its way onto Youtube or other streaming services following the showing. After checking out the short, you can tune into a special Nintendo Treehouse: Live with Star Fox Zero & Star Fox Guard on April 20th at 3 PM PT! You can watch at live.nintendo.com.
In Star Fox Zero, the evil, power-hungry Andross is back, marching his fearsome forces across the galaxy. General Pepper now turns to a new Star Fox team, lead by James McCloud’s son, Fox McCloud, to save the Lylat System and defeat Andross once and for all.
Lead producer Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Star Fox Zero is neither a prequel nor a strict remake of the first game.
