On the heels of Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, a Star Fox Zero trailer was released which shows off its Amiibo-unlocked SNES Arwings and land-based Walkers blasting their way through Corneria. Many fans will remember Corneria as the opening stage in the old Star Fox games, where you met your anthropomorphic co-pilots and learned how to do a barrel roll for the first time.
The video begins with a retro Arwing shooting down familiar enemies and launching a smart bomb, but then the ship drops and seamlessly transforms into a Walker. The Walker appeared in the cancelled Star Fox 2, and its appearance should bring an interesting angle to a classic stage with its ability to run and jump.
Star Fox Zero is scheduled for launch on April 22nd.
