Nintendo Unsure of F-Zero's Future
Posted on Friday, June 21 @ 09:14:53 PST by Alex_Osborn
The minute Nintendo fans first saw the anti-gravity gameplay of Mario Kart 8, I'm sure Captain Falcon's high-speed racing franchise F-Zero came to mind. Will we be seeing an HD take on the insanely fast Nintendo racer? Judging by comments from Shigeru Miyamoto, I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.
Miyamoto told IGN:
I certainly understand that people want a new F-Zero game. I think where I struggle is that I don’t really have a good idea for what’s new that we could bring to F-Zero that would really turn it into a great game again. Certainly I can see how people looking at Mario Kart 8 could see, through the anti-gravity, a connection to F-Zero. But I don’t know, at this point, what direction we could go in with a new F-Zero.
The outlet then followed up by asking the Nintendo exec whether or not some franchises (like F-Zero) are better left in the past, to which he replied:
It’s tough. We come to the show and we bring a lot of great franchises and everyone says, 'Oh, well, where’s this game that I want to play? Where’s something new?' I only have so much capacity. [laughs] Obviously in the past we’ve tried to work with other companies, where we’ve let them develop games for us in franchises like Star Fox and F-Zero, but the more we think about it, the more we prefer to be able to create those games internally, on our own.Are you holding out hope for a Wii U F-Zero? What other Nintendo franchises would you like to see brought into the HD era? Let us know in the comments below.
