Fox McCloud, Peppy Hare, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad are back in Star Fox Zero for the Wii U.

Nintendo has unveiled a debut trailer for Star Fox Zero, its re-imagining of the Star Fox franchise. Zero will feature bits and pieces from different entries of the franchise, but things are going to be quite different this time around. Without the big Legend of Zelda game coming to the Wii U in 2015, Nintendo has to break out some of the big guns to maintain interest for the Wii U. Luckily, Star Fox is the series to do just that. This new Wii U entry of the Star Fox franchise features plenty of familiar scenes and dialogue pieces from StarFox 64, but things are looking quite innovative. Nintendo doesn't consider it a remake or a sequel.

The new Arwing is able to foldout and walk on legs for some ground-walking shooter sequences. Likewise, new vehicles were unveiled, such as the new helicopter-like Gyro Wing that is capable of hovering and sending out drones you can control on your GamePad. Speaking of the Wii U controller, its screen will constantly feature a cockpit view so you can get your precision hits in using the mini-screen while focusing on your TV to steer your vehicle.

Star Fox Zero will be hitting the Wii U sometime this holiday season.
