The F-Zero franchise was relaunched in 1990 as a new futuristic racing series. However, IPT has closed with a new installment where the series will not receive a big fan reception until 1996. This is an iconic video game series that helps turn off other iconic game titles such as WiPout. Unfortunately, although this franchise has a fan base, the last game installment to be released from F-Zero IP came back in 2004.
It’s a latent IP right now, though it’s clear that the Nintendo series is keeping somewhat alive with the likes of Super Low Bros. and Mario Kart. While these crossovers are appealing to fans, there are quite a few of us who would love to see another complete F-Zero installment hit on the market. All in all, I’ve seen quite a few posts reflected on the IP and come up with the expectation of seeing a big comeback on the franchise Nintendo Switch platform.
Only such fans do not want to see this IPT return. The series was created under legendary video game developer Shigeru Miyamomoto, another driving force behind IP creation is creator Toshihiro Nagoshi. Of course, since then, Toshihiro has been helping Nagoshi Yakuza create another iconic video game franchise. Recently, the former F-Zero producer has just seen Yakuza: Like A Dragon where he was executive director, but he brought up the iconic IP during a conversation with Red Bull France.
“Mmm … I have to admit I have a lot of affection for the F-Zero GX, despite the disadvantages. I wouldn’t mind if the opportunity presented itself. And in that case I want to make it as a challenging game. I believe that if Nintendo just wants a racing game that is ‘fun and accessible’, they already have Mario Kart for that purpose. “
During the conversation, Toshihiro Nagoshi stated that he would like to make another challenging racing title if Nintendo brings him back to IP. For casual gamers, Nintendo has Mario Kart but F-Zero will create a fast-paced and intense racing series for fans. However, it seems that while Toshihiro Nagoshi is on board, this IP will ultimately see the light of day even when installing other standalone video games, depending ultimately on Nintendo.
