Star Fox Zero is a 3D scrolling shooter developed by Nintendo and PlatinumGames for the Wii U console. Neither a sequel nor a prequel, the title is a re-imagining of the classic Star Fox 64 with some new gameplay elements and locations. Players are shown a third-person view on the TV and an alternate cockpit view on the GamePad, and are now able to shoot in one direction while flying in another.

The game is available digitally through Nintendo eShop for $50, while retail versions are priced at $60. That being said, the latter include Star Fox Guard, a standalone tower defense game, as a bonus.
