Earlier today, Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct packed full of announcements — including the reveal of the Retro Arwing, a special ship available within Star Fox Zero unlocked through the use of the Fox McCloud amiibo.

Recently, we went hands-on with Star Fox Zero, including a little time with the Retro Arwing. Above, see what the unlockable ship changes: including the sound effects, music, the missile system, and even a low-poly version of the Walker — a sly reference to the cancelled SNES sequel Star Fox 2.
