Star Fox turns the Wii U GamePad into the view from the cockpit of Fox McCloud's Arwing fighter. While the TV shows the perspective from behind the Arwing, players can also use the gyro sensors of the GamePad to intuitively and independently target enemies. Players can instantly switch between the Arwing and Landmaster tank with the press of a button, and the game also introduces a new helicopter-type vehicle. The game is scheduled for 2015.
From the Manufacturer
Star Fox Zero
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.
Multiple paths branch out to give players plenty of places to explore, and each route gives them a completely different experience and unique challenges.
Players will notice their skills get better and better over time, as they become top-notch pilots. In two-player mode, one player can fly the Arwing while the other player aims and shoots.
Pilot the new and improved Arwing with its new Walker transformation and take control of a new Drone type plane, the Gyrowing. The Landmaster Tank returns, equipped with a new, limited flight form.
James McCloud, Pigma Dengar, and Peppy Hare of the Star Fox team were sent on a mission to the planet Venom, where a twisted scientist, Andross, had been exiled years earlier. Upon their arrival, Pigma betrayed the team. Peppy barely escaped but James was never heard from again.
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.
Immerse yourself in the action with a unique control scheme that uses both the TV screen and Wii U GamePad. Revisit stages filled with collectible Medals and explore branching paths to discover new challenges. And join Fox, Falco, Peppy and Slippy as they fight to protect the Lylat System from Andross’s invasion!

Star Fox Zero has met with a lot of criticism, mostly focusing on the control scheme. It works like this: You control the ship with the two sticks, and for precise aiming you use the Gamepad screen. It takes adjustment, but it works. That is, it works as it would if you were flying a spaceship whilst also manning guns. Which is why the 2-player co-op, where one person flies and the other shoots, feels easier and more like a regular game.
The plot is secondary, to be honest. You are basically given a series of missions, mostly involving shooting everything that isn’t your wingmen, or infiltrating some enemy base. Hold down the left trigger and the screen focuses on your current objective. Again, very straightforward.
That’s not to say the game is easy. The goals can be tough, the dogfights challenging, and the bosses can be mean. But it’s not a punishing game – the penalty for failure is starting the mission over or from a checkpoint. And you will improve. You’ll get used to when it’s best to do a loop or when to hit the retros.
Parental guidance: There’s nothing to worry about here. The graphics are bright and cartoony in style and there’s no swearing or gore. The standard difficulty may be too much for youngsters, but apparently there’s an invulnerability mode where you can’t die, you’re just going for the high score. I say “apparently” because I haven’t tried this mode.
You get to control numerous vehicles. You’ll have your favourite.Read more ›
Overall, the game itself is a decent entry to the Star Fox series, but it is extremely short, I reached the final boss within about 2 1/2 hours on my first run. The game isn't very difficult on its Normal Mode, however it has the option to tone down the difficulty and has the infamous Invincible Mode, just in case you want to breeze through it.
As it stands, I would say this; pick the game up when it's a little cheaper.
Star fox zero looks and plays fantastic. The design of the game is excellent. It reminds me of the games Nintendo used to make when they were at their peak. Today modern games have all become 'pick up and play'. Well Star fox zero is not 'pick up and play'. It requires the player to learn the controls, then the experience becomes ultra rewarding. Games in the past required this, but unfortunately we are living in a world where people want instant gratification. The casual gamer need not apply here and it may be too difficult for very young players. This game is aimed at gamers.
I totally believe (I know I only have it 2 days) that it the best game Nintendo have made this generation. Without a shadow of a dough this is the greatest Star fox game ever. Proper old school. I absolutely love it.
I'll be the first to admit the controls take abit of getting used to, i wish that i could just use the Nintendo pro controller and play and if i could this would of got a solid 5 stars from me, the controls are by no means bad now but it took me around an hour to get used to them.
Onto the game itself, WOW, i love the graphics, vibrant and colourful, the battles look great. On the 3rd stage though I did notice a lot of slow down when there was huge explosions going on but this wasn't enough to bother me in the end as it does look fantastic and Nintendo is all about fun!
I've done around 5 planets so far which have all varied and the missions have been fun.
There are new vehicles this time round such as a gyro copter (which took me a while to get used to control wise).
If you haven't played the N64 version of lylat wars (or star fox 64 in the US) or even the star fox 3ds remake then you will still find enjoyment from the game, buy it, see what the fuss is all about.
Great fun, i love it. Will keep me entertained for a while.

Lots of fun in the classic Star Fox style. The dual screen gameplay does take a bit of getting used to but it's worth the effort, providing a more immersive experience.Published 1 month ago by Sam Dufton
