Wowzers trousers!

The story cinematic for Star Fox Zero has appeared online, and although it's entirely in Japanese, it gives you a flavour of the game's plot.

As the title is essentially a remake of the N64 title, it's unsurprisingly to learn that Andross is the main antagonist. A few familiar faces appear elsewhere in the footage, and the voiceover is suitably dramatic.

Star Fox Zero arrives on the Wii U in April.
