Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins Animated Short Airing This Week

With just under a week to go until the release of Star Fox Zero, Nintendo have today announced an animated short based on the series, titled The Battle Begins, will be broadcast to all regions. Created in partnership by Shigeru Miyamoto, Production I.G and WIT STUDIO, the short will be available to stream via Nintendo’s official site on April 20 starting at 3PM Pacific Time, or 11PM in the UK.

Immediately following the stream, a Treehouse: Live broadcast, featuring both Star Fox Zero & Starfox Guard, will be available. Those who miss the animated short’s original stream can catch up via YouTube when the video gets uploaded shortly thereafter. Star Fox Zero launches for Wii U on April 22. Check out a preview below:
