Is the F-Zero Franchise Worth Resurrecting?

F-Zero is one of those cult classic franchises that seems to be on the back of gamers’ minds often. When it first launched on the SNES back in 1990, there was nothing else like it in the gaming world. The game was fast, colorful, and provided many unique mechanics to separate itself from all of the other racers on the market at the time. However, we haven't seen a new entry since 2004. Jason Capp has some thoughts on the subject.

I'd say yes, but Nintendo does have another anti-grav racer in the 'fast racing' series. Its not the same but it tides me over until they can make a full on FZero reboot.

OhReginald671d ago

Yes if nintendo finds a passionate team to do it justice like metroid dread.

darthv72671d ago

I was thinking Shin'en would be a good choice as they already know how to make a fast and fun racer.

If Bubsy worth remastering, then F-Zero worth resurrecting for sure.

Nintendo should've just allowed Fast RMX to be the new F Zero. Those guys made a banger of game! All it's missing is the F Zero name.

Ex-Nintendo designer says no new F-Zero due to Mario Kart, low sales & high costs

F-Zero has been a dormant franchise for a couple of decades now. In fact, if it weren’t for the obvious appearances that Captain Falcon has been making in Super Smash Bros. games, you could get the impression that Nintendo has forgotten all about the series.

Have a new F-Zero hit within the first 2 years of Switch 2 and watch it sell away.

Can’t believe Nintendo chose a remaster for Cruise N Blast over F-Zero GX

GhostScholar293d ago

I wish they would see the license then.

Maybe Nintendo should learn to drop the prices on their games if they want more sales. I have seen games that are 4 years old on store shelves at full price.

Rockstar292d ago

I've had treasure tracker for the switch bookmarked since it was released waiting for the price to hit my sweet spot of 30 bucks...still waiting...

We haven't seen a lot of franchise's from Nintendo. Mario will always stay as the shit stain of Nintendo. Mario games are fun and Kirby but some times you get tired of seeing Mario everywhere literally everywhere. They are playing it safe.

It's Time for a New F-Zero Game

F-Zero is one of Nintendo's most neglected franchises, but the high-speed racing title could stand out from Mario Kart and utilize modern graphics.

We are probably only getting a new one when Miyamoto dies.

ZeekQuattro473d ago

There's a rumor GX is being ported over but we know how that goes.

Minute Man 721473d ago

No....the last one sold like 20k or something lower that a limbo pole

It is, but it’s a bummer it would most likely be held back by Nintendos weak hardware


Top 20 Soundtracks From the 16-Bit Era

In the 16-bit era, game devs and composers could finally change the type of tones used in the music, simulating a wider array of instruments and creating a whole lot of great soundtracks in the process.

It wasn’t easy picking out the best of the best because there were so many great ones. Even middle-of-the-road soundtracks seemed to deserve a bump if the game was just that damn good, and so many from that era are that damn good!

Here's the Ghetto Gamer list of top 20 soundtracks from the 16-bit era.
