Animated Star Fox Short Premieres April 20th at 6 pm EST, Star Fox Zero and Guard Treehouse Live After

Post by Zero Revolution on Mon Apr 18, 2016 10:12 am

Nintendo has confirmed that Shigeru Miyamoto has created a Star Fox animated short along with Production IG and WIT Studios, and it will be airing on Nintendo's twitch and YouTube channels, and at http://live.nintendo.com/ April 20th at 6 pm EST! Immediately after will be a Treehouse Live event with Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard.

This is awesome! I can't wait to see it, even if it turns out not that great. :p I still love Nintendo's animations like this (such as the Kid Icarus anime shorts and the Palutena reveal trailer for Smash, or even the Pikmin short films if you count them) I probably won't stick around for the Treehouse Live because I don't want to spoil too much, I've tried to avoid pretty much any info online about the games past the first 2 trailers (just to get an idea of what it'll be like, looks like a much improved Star Fox 64 with new features and areas) so I don't plan on watching them.

Nintendo seems to be going all out with Star Fox Zero since they put money into a short. As for the Treehouse I will likely mostly be about Guard since Star Fox Zero is pretty short.

The short will be 15 minutes long.

I'm guessing it will be a full mission then.

^ Yeah, I wonder if they really are going for a full reboot of the franchise here. I thought the fact that it's still a Wii U exclusive meant they were kind of brushing it off, but that doesn't seem to be the case at all. They really are hyping it up and promoting it in a lot of different ways. I'm pretty excited.

^ I really wouldn't be surprised considering how much they've been doing lately, and the fact that My Nintendo works with movie tickets, etc. so they're clearly working on more projects like this as well. My guess is that this along with the Kid Icarus anime and Pikmin shorts are to test the waters for bigger projects similar to them.

I'm definitely excited to see the animated Star Fox short. Lengthy too. I think it will be an original story, where the team goes on a mission not seen in the game. I'm not interested in the Treehouse stream after, I want to see everything in the game myself first when I play it. Especially the begging. The same for Guard. It would ruin that magical feeling when you first start a game up.

I would love a Zelda anime. I hope they make one someday. I think the animated Star Fox short may mean they will make more for other Nintendo franchises. I'm sure Zelda would be included.

The live stream starts in 25 minutes! Just in case anyone's on and forgot the time. You can watch it here.

Here is the video.



The voice acting was spot on and we finally see what the minor characters look like in the Star Fox world. It also ended on a cliffhanger so maybe there will be a part 2 at some point?

I liked it! The voice acting was good, the animation style was okay, and overall it was pretty fun to watch. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to do a part 2 eventually, especially with the cliffhanger ending. We may see one soon.
