Star Fox Zero is now under a month away from launch, and Nintendo of America has begun distributing review code to press.
YouTuber AbdallahSmash026 was lucky enough to be able to hold the ‘world premiere livestream,’ which saw him show the Wii U exclusive’s prologue and Corneria’s trickier second path.
He also scanned his Falco amiibo, which reveals that the ace pilot and Fox McCloud’s rival will unlock the Black Arwing. Abdallah explains that this is a more offensive-orientated Arwing, allowing players to charge and lock on to two enemies at once. But, that comes at a cost, with players taking three times as much damage.
We already knew that by scanning the Fox amiibo, players can unlock a Retro Arwing styled after that seen in Star Fox from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System era.
Star Fox Zero will launch exclusively for Wii U in Japan on April 21st, and worldwide on April 22nd.
