If you were tucked up in bed by 11pm last night you might have missed the new Star Fox Zero animated short.
Worry not, as the video is now up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.
Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins is simple, cute, and beautifully animated. It’s pretty disposable but does a nice job in promoting the game. And we certainly wouldn’t say no to future instalments.
As for Star Fox Zero itself?
Well, reaction is mixed, with opinions on the game polarised to say the least. At one end of the scale Forbes call it the ‘last nail in the Wii U’s coffin’ – which seems a little harsh. At the other, US Gamer give the game a cautious thumbs-up, saying “it’s still the best game the series has seen in a long time.”
Star Fox Zero is released on Wii U on 22nd April, 2016.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
