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 through 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 at present 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 – a minimum of primarily based on his personal historical past with the corporate – is that it is “by no means” a aware resolution made by Nintendo to cease supporting sure sequence. It is really simply experimenting with new and totally different gameplay types and the way they may very well be utilized to both new or current sequence.
He appears to suppose there is a good likelihood that somebody inside Nintendo’s HQ may very well be experimenting with an concept that may very well 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, a minimum of throughout my tenure, Nintendo builders have been all the time experimenting with totally different gameplay types, all the time desirous about the place a novel expertise may very well be utilized again, both to an current franchise or possibly creating a brand new franchise. My wager is that someplace within the Kyoto improvement facilities, some developer is enjoying round with an concept that could be utilized to F-Zero. It’s by no means a scenario, a minimum of in my expertise, the place the corporate makes a aware resolution to not proceed supporting X-Y-Z franchise. Traditionally it simply hasn’t labored that means, not after I was there.”
This is not the primary time we have heard a former Nintendo particular person discuss in regards to the return of F-Zero. In actual fact, final yr – former Nintendo staffer Takaya Imamura stated there was nonetheless life within the racing sequence, however it wants a “grand new concept” to carry it again. Shigeru Miyamoto additionally talked about in 2012 how he felt Nintendo had achieved every little thing that may very well be accomplished with the sequence.
