Star Fox Zero has been out for a little while now, and as the time for bickering over its merits is over those that do like it still have some space blasting to do. It's a game that certainly encourages repeat plays and practice, and now Nintendo UK has launched a competition to up the ante.

The company is looking for an 'ace pilot', along with anyone who can accumulate a total score of over 3000. Now, to be clear, that's not a straightforward task, as even with every stage unlocked you'll need to be at the top of your game to hit that total.

Those in the UK that have the skills to beat that target can get themselves a certificate, while the top score will earn the lucky pilot the following:

  • Star Fox Zero canvas print
  • Fox amiibo
  • Falco amiibo
  • Star Fox Zero Collector's Edition Prima Strategy Guide
  • Star Fox Zero T-Shirt

The contest is running until 12th June, and to enter players need to take evidence of their 3000+ score and post it on Twitter with the hashtags #StarFoxZero and #AcePilot. You can either take a photo, screengrab with a capture device or simply post a screen to Miiverse and then grab the image from the network's web-based version. The screen you want can be found by going into Main Game and then Score List.

Nintendo UK has shared some handy tips, and you can see our guides below which may help. It's a tough task, so let us know in the comments whether you'll be taking it on.
