The fine folk over at GameXplain have managed to go hands-on with the latest build of Star Fox Zero at a Nintendo preview event at PAX Prime. The footage isn’t the most riveting that I’ve ever seen, but it shows off the slow-paced Gyro Wing in the Zoness level in the latest Star Fox game. Judging from various comments on YouTube and forums it seems as though people are wondering why this particular level was one that Nintendo wished to demo. Anyway, Star Fox Zero launches in North America and Europe on November 20th.
