Star Fox Zero is Now Flying Into Stores Across Canada
Message from General Pepper. Priority one!
As noted yesterday, Star Fox Zero is available today in both the Nintendo eShop and at retail. While the game and its Tower Defense-meets-Five Nights at Freddy’s companion, Star Fox Guard, can be purchased separately in the Nintendo eShop, both games are being sold collectively as one unit in stores for $74.99 CAD. Those who purchase one in the Nintendo eShop will receive an automatic discount of $9.99 CAD when purchasing the other game digitally.
