In an interview with Game Kult. legendary Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto has questioned the need for a new F-Zero game. When asked why a new entry to the series hasn’t been created since the GBA’s 2004 release of F-Zero GP Legend, Miyamoto seemed surprised and made the opinion that the series hasn’t really evolved since its Japanese debut on the Super Nintendo in 1990.
After a quick survey on Twitter, one of the game French gamers miss the most is F Zero. Nobody really understands why Nintendo hasn’t made a new one since 2004. Is there a chance we can see it back on Wii U?
Miyamoto: :eyes open wide: I am really pleased to hear Twitter’s opinion, because since the first episode on SNES many games have been made but the series has little evolved.
I thought people had grown weary of it. I’d like to say: Thank you very much and try to wait by playing Nintendo Land’s F-Zero minigame.
I am also very curious and I’d like to ask those people: Why F-Zero? What do you want that we haven’t done before?
Interesting to hear the Grandfather of Gaming make that statement, given that the same can be said of other Nintendo products that do see consistent releases despite not really adding anything new to gaming. What makes the circumstance more unfortunate is that the F-Zero games have been received very well among critics, and earning strong support from fans. In fact the GameCube’s F-Zero GX from 2003 is considered one of the fastest racers ever created, and one in particular that fans request a follow up to.
It seems we’ll have to look forward to playing Nintendo Land to get our contemporary F-Zero fix for now. Quite the “Falcon Kick!” to the balls.
