Star Fox Zero – Battle Begins Animated Short Coming April 20th

Do you ever want to see what a Star Fox anime might look like?

Or for that matter, just about any type of animated series based on the Star Fox franchise?

If so, you’re in luck, since Nintendo has announced a new animated short called Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins! Likely set prior to the upcoming Wii U game, it’s premiering on April 20th at 3PM PT. The short was produced in a collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto, Production IG and WIT Studios. Here’s a preview from their Youtube channel:

And an announcement tweet by Nintendo of Europe:

What’s more, it’s going to be followed by a Nintendo Treehouse Live stream afterwards. This will focus on Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard.

So it could be an interesting thing to watch. I mean, the trailer above looks pretty cool, and a few professional animation studios are involved in this. Maybe there’s even a chance the video could turn into a full mini series?

What do you think about Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins? Or the idea of a Treehouse Live stream straight afterwards? And would you want to see a whole series like this?
