Star Fox Zero Game Gets Anime Short by Attack on Titan Studios
posted on by Egan Loo
Nintendo posted a teaser trailer on Monday to promote the world premiere of a Star Fox Zero animated short on April 20 at 6:00 p.m. EDT. The staff of "Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins" includes acclaimed game creator Shigeru Miyamoto (Mario, Zelda, Star Fox), Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Blood: The Last Vampire, collaboration on Attack on Titan) and Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, The Empire of Corpses).
A "Nintendo Treehouse: Live with Star Fox Zero & Star Fox Guard" presentation will follow the streamed premiere of "Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins."
The Star Fox Zero game itself will debut on the Nintendo Wii U console on April 21 in Japan, and on April 22 in North America. The tower defense game Star Fox Guard will be available via a download code in the First Print Edition of Star Fox Zero, as well as in a standalone digital download.
Nintendo unveiled the game during its press conference at last year's E3 in June. Miyamoto is working on the game alongside designer Takaya Imamura. Miyamoto said the game is neither a sequel nor a remake. He chose the title "zero" to reflect that, and also because he liked the design of the kanji for "zero."
