The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

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 ofMario Kart 8, I'm sure Captain Falcon's high-speed racing franchiseF-Zerocame 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 toldIGN:
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 theNintendo exec whether or not some franchises (likeF-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.

We’ve obviously, as I mentioned, been working on what we can do to increase our internal staff in a way that will allow us to have more projects going at the same time, so we can create new games and work on additional old IP and still maintain the other primary franchises that people want to see.
