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.

ZeekQuattro415d ago

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

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


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

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.

Rockstar234d 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...

blackblades234d ago

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.

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.

Nintendo responds to investor asking for return to F-Zero, says it can't accommodate all requests

Nintendo’s 82nd Annual General Meeting of Shareholders took place a few days ago, and one investor decided to ask about the possibility of revisiting F-Zero and series that haven’t seen a sequel in a long time.

This can't be real, right? They can't accommodate it? Right, right... They have to have focus on making their 60th Mario spin-off. No time for silly little things like beloved IP's that have been left to rot lol.

Yeah it’s pretty funny

Mario Football, Tennis, Golf, Olympic Games with Sonic etc but one F-Zero game…”nah we’re too busy”

Nintendo relies on 1st-party earnings more than the other platforms holders. As a company, Ninentdo seems to expect very high attach rates and profit margins from their releases. Hence, Mario spin-offs and Pokémon get frequent releases. While mainline Mario, Zelda, and Smash releases are near guaranteed every Nintendo console generation.

“Niche” titles like F-zero probably wouldn’t meet Nintendo sales and profit expectations. I personally fear that Metroid Dread’s ~ 3 million sales aren’t enough for Nintendo to consider Metroid as a core franchise alongside Mario, Zelda, Pokémon and Smash.

Interestingly as an aside. One of the reasons why Nintendo cut ties with Rare was because they weren’t pleased with sales figures of Perfect Dark (3 million copies),despite the title being a late releasing N64 title and a new IP.

This is old news, happened last week. They are concentrating on Switch inevitably becoming the best selling console of all time.

XiNatsuDragnel594d ago

Really cmon Nintendo make that fzero sequel please.

ZeekQuattro594d ago

This guy invested a lot of money into Nintendo in order ask a question on an niche IP that made Nintendo very little money and went away. F-Zero is dead folks. Time to move on. You voted with your wallets and Nintendo heard you loud and clear. Might as well throw Mother/Earthbound on the pile as well. Also this article is from the 4th making this old news.The meeting took place late last month.

They aren’t wrong are they. It’s a business. And the Switch will become the best selling console of all time.
