Trivia

The reason for Zero Wing's popularity beyond its release as an arcade game and video game is due to the additions made to the European Mega Drive version. To expand on the game's plot, an introductory cut scene was added to the game. This introductory scene was famously translated to English rather poorly for the European release, because of the European version being rushed, resulting in dialog such as "Somebody set up us the bomb" and "All your base are belong to us. You have no chance to survive make your time!" See more »

Quotes

Captain: What happen?
Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What!
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You!
Cats: How are you, gentlemen? All your base are belong to us. You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say?
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time. Ha Ha Ha Ha ...
Captain: Take off every "zig"! You know what you doing. Move "zig". For great justice.

Crazy Credits

Though the arcade version of Zero Wing did not have the famous "Engrish" introduction, it did provide more unintentional comedy upon completion of the game: Congratulation !! A.D.2111 All bases of CATS were destroyed. It seems to be peaceful. but it is incorrect. CATS is still alive. ZIG-01 must fight against CATS again. and down with them completely ! Good luck.

great intro
27 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

the only good thing with this game are the intro.and if you go in to new grounds.com and search on "zero wind rhapsody" you seen the intro with song.He He the intro are so stupid all your base are belong to us. darn i must fill in all 10 line anyway this game bad but the intro is fun. think a bad movie like Russian ninja you look to it because its bad right? the evil cats come in to the space ship and say (like walker bush) all your base are belong to us. and send out they last "zig" a small spaceship.damn i hope the right spelling device doesn't crew it up.and the game is easy super easy and bullets which go to the targets the green.i think walker bush use this game for credits for he is DA man Ci 3 when you lose the winners say all your base it a bloody rip off like duke nuke say salute to the king like Bruce Campbell in SAM ramie evil dead.
