Star Fox Zero Takes Off This Holiday

Nintendo has pinned down a name for its latest Star Fox title. Star Fox Zero will be out this holiday, and the Arwing has received some upgrades.

The major change is that you'll need to split your attention between the television and the gamepad. The latter of which is used for fine aiming in a cockpit view.

You'll also be able to transform into a Walker (once you unlock the ability), which allows you to take the fight to ground based enemies, finish the fight, and then take off in all-range mode. Other vehicles you'll be able to pilot include the Landmaster tank (which can hover and fly for limited times) and a gyrocopter with a robotic pal to access smaller places.

Star Fox Zero is coming this fall.
