Star Fox Zero isn't far away, and as the name suggests it will serve in part as a greatest hits showcase for the modern generation. From stages and plotlines inspired by Star Fox 64 through to the fact you can unlock a retro-styled 16-bit Arwing with a scan of the Fox amiibo, it's full of nods to the series' history.

To emphasize that point Nintendo of Europe has released a history trailer that showcases past entries in the series before wrapping up with some lovely footage from the Wii U release. In terms of the new entry we get a fresh glimpse of stages and Wolf jumping into a battle.

Check it out below and let us know if it's getting you hyped for the upcoming Wii U release (and Star Fox Guard, too).
