Star Fox Zero now has a low key demo on the Wii U eShop

Star Fox Zero sales off to a series-worst in Japan

I am legitimately unsure why Nintendo feels like Star Fox should get a nod over a lot of its existing, untouched properties COUGH METROID COUGH COUGH and it seems like I'm not alone. Last week we saw the Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard dou...

You can watch that weird Star Fox anime thing now

Nintendo's Treehouse aired that Star Fox anime they announced earlier this week. Predictably, it's pretty anime-ish, what with the dramatic dialog and Macross-missile barrages. You can catch it on YouTube if you're interested. Super slick ...

Review: Star Fox Zero

Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then you'll love this...

A touching Iwata tribute is in Star Fox Zero

Former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata may have passed on months ago, but his loss is still keenly felt in the gaming community. In that spirit, Nintendo put a touching nod to the man at the end of the Star Fox Zero. A small post-credit ded...

Star Fox Zero has a limited edition bundle in Europe

Over at their official UK store, Nintendo unveiled a new bundle for Star Fox Zero, which is still on track for an April 22 worldwide release. It actually looks kind of neat, with two amiibo (Fox and Falco), a hat, and a shirt. Since it's a ...

So that's what happened to Project Guard

Blink, and you missed it. Yesterday, Nintendo announced Star Fox Guard, which is to be bundled in with Star Fox Zero when it hits the Wii U in April. But did you remember Project Guard, unveiled in 2014 where Miyamoto envisioned ...

That's more like it, Star Fox Zero

Comparing recent Star Fox Zero footage to what was shown in June, it's clear Nintendo made the right call when it delayed the Wii U game to April 22, 2016. Besides visual upgrades, the extra time is going toward improving the GamePad experi...

Star Fox Zero site mentions online features, probably nothing

When Star Fox Zero was announced at E3, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said the company was prioritizing single-player (and 60 frames per second) and that there would be no online multiplayer at all. That still seems to be the case despite rec...

Star Fox Zero won't lock content behind amiibo

Unlike some of the addled fringe elements of Destructoid, I do not partake in amiibo. Recent Nintendo releases like Splatoon and Yoshi's Wooly World have locked certain gameplay bits behind Nintendo's line of collectable dolls. That won't b...
