This page shows some gameplay clips of the different vehicles in the game. It also shows that the Falco amiibo will be used for something.

I really do hope they launch the full site soon. Can't wait to see all the HD images (especially of wolf).

I like how Grippy has the same skin colour as Slippy's son from Command.

aaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I feel weirdly vindicated that the first Star Fox spinoff stars Slippy, but I'm gawking at these updated character designs. Katt's little earring and necklace, Andrew's douchey collar, Wolf's eye scar... today was A Good Day

This Cornerian Pilot looks a lot like a Shiba Inu.

Also, Leon looks terrible. He looks like a damn pyramid.

Here's my attempt at translating the story vid. Note that this is based on a Google translation, so who knows about the accuracy.

My name is Fox, Fox McCloud.

My father was a former pilot for the Cornerian Army who founded the mecernary squadron Star Fox.

5 years ago, my father was sent by General Pepper of the Cornerian Army to investigate a disturbance on the planet Venom, where he was killed.

Venom is the fronteir planet where General Pepper had banished the dangerous mad scientist Dr. Andross.

The Star Fox team was sent to investigate. The members were my father, James McCloud, his best friend Peppy Hare, and a freelance pilot named Pigma Dengar. It was only the three of them.

Before the mission had even started, Pigma was hired by Andross.

My father and Peppy fell into a trap. They both tried to flee, but only Peppy managed to escape.

Peppy was the last one to see my father alive.

In a surprising move, Andross had prepared a giant army and was preparing to invade all the planets of the Lylat System!

This was the beginning of The Lylat Wars.

Since then, the armies of Andross and Corneria battled throughout the Lylat System.

I decided to fulfill my father's dying wish: To fight Andross' army. I developed some top weapons, gathered three of my best firends, and re-formed the Star Fox team.

Slippy Toad is my best fried from the academy and a skilled scientist and engineer.

Falco Lombardi is a bad dude with an attitude, but he's a trusted pilot.

Peppy Hare flew alongside my father and supports my efforts even now.

And today... I received an urgent message from General Pepper on Corneria, a planet I haven't visited in a long time.

Andross' army has appeared at Corneria City in what appears to be a large-scale attack!

Finally the time has come for us to fully demonstrate our power!

You just wait, Andross!

I really love it how it is told from Fox's point of view. Most video games are narrated from a third person perspective (Like in SF64), but when the story is told by the protagonist, it suddenly gets a lot more personal. We actually get to hear how Fox feels about what's going on in the story, and just DZComposer's translation alone made me feel a lot of empathy for him. 

* Feeling like I can relate to my favorite video game hero fills me with determination!

Katt having an earring in this game pretty much confirms she was based off Miyu.

I thought the very same thing..you just hear the bitterness out of his voice at some points. I like it.

Though judging from this translation...does this mean there were never phases of peace?

I've read this about four times now and still don't see how this statement is conclusive.

I'm surprised at how much I like how the game is shaping up.  While I still wish some of the voice actors from Assault were retained (Wolf [Grant Goodeve, who also played TF2's Engineer, funnily enough], Slippy, and Falco's voice actors in particular were great), I'm pleased that the gameplay looks as fun as it always has.  It's been too long since I've seen the traditional boss-fight structure with the gigantic, blinking weak spot.

"My name is Fox McCloud. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Not that anyone will actually get the reference.

wait a minute

is this happening? Is a StarFox game really seeming to have a solid plot base?

In all seriousness, I'm not sure if it's Platinum Games doing their magic, or if Nintendo decided to take this direction from their side, but regardless, if DZ's transcript is anywhere near accurate then I really like how they're turning things around. Subtle change but I feel like it might make a world of difference if they decide to elaborate on top of that. And hey, this is already more stable story development than the introductions of Adventures, Assault or Command. I'd stretch it to say combined as well, but I'll be waiting a little more to see.

I don't really care if the story depth doesn't turn out up to level with say, Ace Combat, Deus Ex or Metal Gear, since they're all different franchises by different writing teams, but this introduction already starts off with the right foot. Might still be a long shot, but I'd say those three are at least in the ballpark now.

I'm really impressed with that Fortuna level. It looks like it would actually be pretty difficult.

Okay, I know this is kinda off topic, and might seem a little far-fetched... But DZComposer's translation of the Japanese intro ("My name is Fox, Fox McCloud" in particular) kind of got me thinking... Could there be a Star Fox anime in the works?

I have watched a bit of anime before when I was younger (I enjoyed stuff like Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew, and Ojamajo Doremi), and I do recall a majority of them, or even ALL of them, having the main protagonist say something like "My name is (Insert character's full name here)" and then explain how their life is like, what's currently going on, their past, etc in the first episode. 

And in the Star Fox Zero Japanese intro... Fox did just that! He told us what his name was, his past, what's going on in his life... Plus, you guys probably remember when Nintendo popped Star Fox: The Animated Series, and Fredryk Phox was forced to rename it to "A Fox in Space" and give the characters really stupid names. It might just be because of the Patron, but that still got me wondering...

Again, this may seem a bit far-fetched, and Nintendo may or may not be making a Star Fox anime... But that would be so cool, wouldn't it? I'm keeping my hopes up! :p

One of those interviews (I don't know anymore which one), well, the guy asked if they would make some Star Fox shorts, like how they did with Pikmin and Miyamoto answered with a 'maybe..not at the moment though'.

I, for my part, haven't watched the Pikmin stuff, but I would welcome it.

As much as I'd love to see that, I wouldn't put much stock into it. Miyamoto has been known to talk out of his ass about such things.
