F Zero was a cool game back in its day. Though it is a little dated nowadays but could look nice with hd upscaling...

With the Wii, and WiiU its been 2 consoles without one.
Probably a bit too "hardcore" for the current Nintendo fanbase... :wink:

Although GX also didn't sell that well. Futuristic racers are a niche genre today which is unfortunate as they're really fun if done right.

There is that Fast Racing for the Wii and Wii-U, think they're a Nintendo exclusive franchise so that may scratch the F-Zero itch for nintendo fans.

I think it's good they've held off making F-Zero all this time, absence makes the heart grow fonder, hopefully by the time they do a new one it will be more of a big deal because it's the first one in a while and the new tech will make it a bit special.

It's got a lot to live up to though. Sega's involvement in GX was magical.

Can't help thinking about the apathetic reaction to Starfox Zero and wondering if a new F-Zero would ever live up to the expectation.

The reaction to starfox is purely down to the controls. its really really annoying as there is a great game there, you can just tell playing ot that it would be great but the controls are a barrier.
