E3 2015: Nintendo partners with Platinum Games on Star Fox Zero

Nintendo has joined forces with Platinum Games to build the latest entry in their Star Fox series for Wii U. Titled Star Fox Zero, the game is neither a sequel nor a remake according Shigeru Miyamoto. It's due for launch this Christmas.

Star Fox Zero will reunite the Star Fox team with their iconic vehicles, and deliver a few new surprises. The Arwing fighter returns and the Walker ship that was to be implemented in Star Fox 2 before its cancellation finally gets its moment in the spotlight. Fox, Peppy, Slippy and Falco will be embroiled in a brand new story and take on familiar enemies and former allies.

It looks old school as hell and we've been waiting for this ever since we got our hands on Lylat Wars back in 1997. Welcome back, Star Fox. We've missed you.
