Nintendo is airing a special animated short to commemorate the launch of Star Fox Zero this week.

Produced in collaboration with Shigeru Miyamoto, Production I.G. and WIT Studio, Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins will be broadcast on April 20th at 3PM PT / 11PM BST. It will be immediately followed by a special Nintendo Treehouse session showcasing Star Fox Zero and its companion release, Star Fox Guard.

You'll be able to watch the short film and the Treehouse event here. We'll be live-streaming the film with a blog and chat here on Nintendo Life, too.
