Star Fox Zero News Roundup 2
Lots of news and videos are popping up now that some of the press embargoes have been lifted for Star Fox Zero. I know you guys have seen some of it, but I'm posting it here for completeness. Also, there's tons more that I haven't had a chance to post yet. Be on the lookout for new stuff. Until then, check this stuff out!
Star Fox Zero American Ad
Nintendo's super cheesy Star Fox Zero ad! "He's Foxy! Fox McCloud! It's his sky, you're just flying in it!" Love it! (reported by ChickyBoy37)
Star Fox Zero Framerate Test
DigitalFoundary shows off a bunch of Star Fox Zero footage with a framerate indicator. Except for some explosions and areas with high particle counts, the game runs at a very stable 60fps with v-sync, and never dips below 30. The screen view is running at 720p, while the gamepad is running at 480p, at the same time, at 60fps. Very impressive. (source)
GameStop Star Fox Zero Sweepstakes
You could win a Star Fox Zero prize pack including real dogfighting training, a Star Fox Zero flight jacket, the game and a Wii U, and a bunch of other stuff. There's only one winner, but you don't have to be a PowerUp Rewards member to enter, and apparently you can enter up to 510 times (I checked the official rules). Anyway, I plan to enter tomorrow just for fun. (reported by dragonstar731)
LOTS OF SPOILERS BELOW! You have been warned.
Wolf vs Fox Dogfight (with Wolf walker!)
Fox and Wolf face off in an intense battle. Looks like Star Wolf's ships can also transform into walkers, though these look like a vicious wolf or cheetah-type animal, rather than looking bird-like. (reported by N J FOX)
Katt Dialog and Theme
RadDudesman pointed out that Katt's theme now has a "meow" at the end. And apparently Katt is inviting Fox to her place... (video by NinEverything)
Falco Amiibo Officially Shown
Check out the Black Arwing now that Nintendo gave the go-ahead for posting. Also, apparently you can shoot your teammates during cutscenes! (video by Polygon)
Iwata Honored in Star Fox Zero Ending
This appears during the credits of the game (discovered in a leaked video that has been taken down). Truly touching. (source)
I still haven’t gotten a straight answer on if the falco amiibos arwing is a hard mode or a re skin. How much gameplay wise does it really change :)
The only thing I know for sure is you can lock on to two targets at once.
=] I like how Katt’s new machine looks.
This is the reason we’re here folks. I think that in spirit, we’re all Star Fox members.
Are you going to display the winners art of the Star Fox Zero Intergalactic Art Event?
According to recent Nintendo Miiverse post in the community the winners will get emailed and some already have been emailed. There is no mention of displaying the winners.
@ Mr. Krystal
I can’t wait to get this game, I Pre-ordered it 2 months ago and I’m looking forward to it.
I too want this game, but I have other games that I wanted to get for a while now. So Star Fox Zero gonna have to wait till I’m done getting those games.
