One sequence we’re certain many Nintendo followers would like to see make a return is the F-Zero. Though the Nintendo 64 model obtained a re-release in March by way of the Change On-line service, there hasn’t been a new entry within the futuristic racing sequence for the reason that 2004 Sport Boy Advance title, F-Zero Climax.
So, will this basic Nintendo sequence ever make a return? Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé (who’s presently busy selling his new e-book Disrupting the Sport) was requested by GamesBeat why F-Zero was “deserted” by Nintendo?
The best way Reggie sees it – no less than based mostly on his personal historical past with the corporate – is that it is “by no means” a aware choice made by Nintendo to cease supporting sure sequence. It is truly simply experimenting with new and totally different gameplay kinds and the way they could possibly be utilized to both new or present sequence.
He appears to assume there is a good probability that somebody inside Nintendo’s HQ could possibly be experimenting with an concept that could possibly be a very good match for a future F-Zero sport. This is precisely what he needed to say:
“Why was F-Zero deserted? The perception I’d share is that, no less than throughout my tenure, Nintendo builders have been at all times experimenting with totally different gameplay kinds, at all times eager about the place a novel expertise could possibly be utilized again, both to an present franchise or perhaps creating a brand new franchise. My wager is that someplace within the Kyoto growth facilities, some developer is taking part in round with an concept that could be utilized to F-Zero. It’s by no means a scenario, no less than in my expertise, the place the corporate makes a aware choice to not proceed supporting X-Y-Z franchise. Traditionally it simply hasn’t labored that approach, not once I was there.”
This is not the primary time we have heard a former Nintendo particular person speak in regards to the return of F-Zero. Actually, final yr – former Nintendo staffer Takaya Imamura mentioned there was nonetheless life within the racing sequence, but it surely wants a “grand new thought” to deliver it again. Shigeru Miyamoto additionally talked about in 2012 how he felt the sequence hadn’t actually advanced.
What do you assume a brand new F-Zero sport would want to do to evolve the sequence? Go away a remark under.
