Star Fox Amiibo Functionality Revealed for Star Fox Zero

During the March 3 Nintendo Direct, Amiibo functionality was revealed for Star Fox Zero. If you have the Fox McCloud Amiibo made for Super Smash Bros, you can play the game using a SNES-inspired Arwing. The graphical style resembles the original game’s low-polygon look, and seems fairly faithful to the original. Nothing was announced about this design being unlockable in another form, but a DLC and/or pre-order bonus would seem likely for it.
