Star Fox Zero will do a flyby for all Wii U owners this April 22nd and a new trailer just hit that shows gameplay and the new look. Fox and friends can battle foes in the standard Arwing flight mode and can optionally things to the ground as a Mech or Tank. I like how Star Fox Zero's new look is influenced by the original SNES title and pulls design elements from Metroid and Zelda. One of the big boss-like battles shown at 0:18 looks like it could come straight from Twilight Princess.

I believe the N64 version is available in the eshop or coming soon, too.

It's on the 3DS but hasn't come to Wii U yet.

Ah, yeah, i was just stating from what I recall seeing some where recently. I didn't look it up to verify my memory.

This reminds me so much of the original game, but with updated graphics and new attacks or weapons. I'm not incredibly interested in the game. I did play the original a bit. I have very little memory of the N64 version. I've at least seen it, I'm not sure if I actually played it.

I actually do have Star Fox Assault, which I got from someone a few years ago. I have little or no memory of it either. I did play another on the Gamecube, which was more like a first person or third person game. I rented it and spent very little time with it, though I'd like to try it out again.

I played a ton of the original Star Fox and since I don't have the Wii U this isn't really on my list of games to get. It looks fun and something that I might check out if it's ported to the NX and I... get the NX.
