We knew that Star Fox Zero took a lot of inspiration from the classic Star Fox 64, but just how far did they go? With the Wii U title’s official Japanese website going live in Japan last week, Nintendo also gave us our first look at the game’s opening cinematic. Nintendo World Report had the bright idea to compare this new opening with that of the N64 game, and the resemblance between the two is uncanny. The intros are practically telling the exact same story, as you can tell pretty easily once 64‘s monologue starts.
I’ve got no problem with using the old game for inspiration, but after seeing this I have to admit, I’m wondering if they might be taking it a bit far. Then again, as long as Zero is fun, I’m not exactly concerned if it’s got a brand new storyline or not. What do you think about all this?
