Shigeru Miyamoto says that he is aware that Nintendo fans would love to see a new entry in the F-Zero franchise, but he says that the team are struggling with ideas that could turn the next F-Zero into an exceptional game. Miyamoto concluded by stating that he really doesn’t know what direction Nintendo could go in with a brand new F-Zero title.

“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.”

    • You might have been trolling and didn’t really mean it, But i think it’s true. Wii U sales won’t pick up until somewhere in 2014. i think they released Wii U to early. They have barely any games to give us, so they should not expect Wii U to sell.

      • I agree. They should’ve released it this year so the Virtual Console, better specs, more games, etc. would be available at launch.

      • Must I remind you what is coming out August through October alone? Pikmin 3, in which, I am dying to play,the wonderful 101, in which, I will end up getting. Wind Waker HD which I will also be getting. The good games starts this year and continues into next year, not much of a Nintendo fan are you?

    • It’s really starting to feel like Nintendo isn’t giving its fans what they want. There just doing what they want. I don’t regret getting a wii u but two years after launch we get the games that should of been out first year. The only game I’m looking forward to is the new DK at this point. Feel like I’m forced to get games I don’t want. That’s all there is for me right now.

  2. Aw! I’m definitely waiting for a new F Zero game. We haven’t had a really good one since GX for Gamecube. Still, that game was enough for me to become a fan of the series. It was epic! I think they could make the game work. Updated graphics and a cool plot is all that they need

    • We need to voice our opinions n complain lot to where they change their minds. If really want a new F-Zero game on Wii U that is. Gamers have a voice, see Microsoft. Personally, the only F-Zero game I played is the SNES version. So, I dont even how good the one on Gamecube was to complain for a sequal.

      • I recommend checking it out if you get the chance. It’s probably on the eshop. It was a really great game, I love the gameplay and the graphics hold up really well. Not to mention that the plot was also fantastic. I agree that we just need the game to have enough vocal supporters

    • Or, just make F Zero open world.

      Burnout paradise style. But better.

      The world could be crazy. You wouldn’t be limited to flat gravity obeying roads, you’d have crazy tracks going all through the sky, over this amazing futuristic city. You could drive around of the ground of course, but you’d have highways and stuff going all around cloud piercing skyscrapers.

      Could be incredible, if done right.

  8. Well that sucks, it’s obvious that the next F-Zero would need some online play. If I were to make a new F-Zero, I’d put everything that made F-Zero GX great, put music in the style of F-Zero X, maybe put Sega/Sumo Digital in charge and you’d have a great F-Zero game. Have the machine editor, emblem editor, a track editor, and a character creation tool, have all the characters from GX back with some new faces, maybe make a story mode that has you see Falcon’s bounty hunting adventures.

    As for online features, 30 racers online in a variety of modes. You could even share custom tracks, emblems, machines and characters. And maybe dlc for future tracks and characters. There’s so much more they can do with the series.

  9. You don’t need to drastically change a game for it to be successful. I understand that Nintendo is always trying to bring something innovative to the table, but it’s been so long since an f-zero game was released… Just look at it as a simple, fun racing game and it will sell.

  12. I love F-Zero and I want F-Zero for my goddamn Wii U!

    Ok, with all things said, F-Zero never really did sell well compared to their other franchises, Nintendo is concerned it won’t be as sucessful, because the minority is the vocal one asking for a new game, not the majority who don’t even know or like F-Zero.

    However, Nintendo introduced the anti-gravity mechanic on Mario Kart (which is a popular game played by millions of people) to make their consumers a bit more aware and used to that anti-gravity thing that has a lot in F-Zero, they also introduced a minigame of it in Nintendo Land, which I hope will help the game to gain more public awareness.

    So yea guys, it’s coming. It’s not coming any time soon because first Nintendo has to make sure it won’t be an undersold masterpiece like GX. But it is coming eventually, which makes me very happy! :)

    • Guys the BEST way to get through to a company, is to right letters upon letters to Nintendo by ALL of its fans, and trust me THAT will get their attention. They really do read what comes in, and the top guys are interested enough to speak to the fans about huge issues. LETTERS PEOPLE!!! Online is great too but we need to agree, unite, and strike hard all at the same time to really be effective. Im sure there can be a brave few who can get this going. I offer my servives and ideas to anyone who has more info and ideas to get together and do this! Lets make the first step, get feedback from fans about what they want to see, make youtube videos with petitions, and letters from everyone, I guarantee Nintendo will notice and who knows what we can accomplish? Look at how xboxdone did a 360(Pun Intended) on their policies… Nintendo needs to be intouch with its fan base US or they will do whatever THEY want!

  17. Struggling with ideas? Maybe Nintendo should ask it’s fans then. Many seem to have plenty. Oh wait, I forget, Nintendo doesn’t listen to what gamers want.

    • Respectfully, I don’t see Sony or Microsoft overflowing with innovative ideas. In fact, whether you believe it not, I’d argue Nintendo is the only company pumping out new ideas. For example, the DS, Wii, 3DS, and Wii U are new gaming concepts never before seen. Not to mention, the innovative gameplay that many of their franchises have seen. I started gaming in the late 80’s, and thanks to Nintendo, I still game. While I have nothing against Sony (I own a PS3) or Microsoft, if Nintendo wasn’t around, I wouldn’t be gaming. For me, Nintendo makes me appreciate gaming, and instead of viewing it a just a simple past time, I now appreciate games as art!

      • That’s your opinion of course. But the majority of the gaming community: gamers, journalists and developers, would disagree. We see nothing but rehashing of top franchises and outdated approaches to gaming. This is also reflected in the awful sales of WiiU and an overall lack of interest, despite E3.

  18. You’re just getting old Mr. Miyamoto. I have tons of ideas for F-Zero as probably many others, but you just keep thinking on how to refresh a franchise when you simply don’t get what people wants. You should produce games for players sometime and not only the games you like to make.

  21. This is why I have so much respect for Nintendo. They don’t just make games because they know they’ll get money from them.

                I am really getting sick and tired of all the new nsmb though hell i’ve only played the first and Wii U ones but i’ve seen so many of them that theyre getting annoying, I can kinda forgive the wii U one as they were just rushing to get a mario game out there at launch but still did they have to make a 3ds one around the same time.

I love my wii u but i hope that there will be lots of different games on this thing from 1st and 3rd parties not just mario spin offs.
