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


It comes with the animated short, too

I liked Star Fox Zero more than most, and I'm perfectly okay with that. I know some of you couldn't get used to the control scheme and didn't dig some of the difficulty spikes, but it only took me a few hours to acclimate -- and although a few decisions are mind-boggling (did Miyamoto force the Gyrowing into development?), most of the game's sections are Arwing related.

If you're undecided, you can download a new demo now and see for yourself. It's called "Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins + Training," and you'll find it tucked away on the Wii U eShop by way of the search function. It clocks in at a whopping 1677MB (which is hilarious big for Nintendo consoles without a hard drive attachment), partially because the short animated film Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins is packed in with it.

Alternatively you can save yourself the download and watch it below. Oh, and there's a Guard demo too.
