Nintendo developer Shin’en Multimedia has given F-Zero-starved fans exactly what they wanted with a new mode in FAST Racing NEO. During a recent interview at UK gaming convention EGX, the title’s art director Martin Sauter explained the new mode will feed those players who want to experience a hardcore racing mode – one that is very similar to F-Zero.
Designed as an unlockable in FAST Racing NEO, Hero Mode can be accessed once players have passed various campaign speed classes, with Sauter claiming it to be a considerable challenge for experienced racers. While the boost gauge can be charged for extra speed in the regular modes, Hero Mode will switch it up and use the boost meter as a shield. Of course, in order to unlock the next mode, players must finish first in the race. FAST Racing NEO is still on track for its December 2015 release on the Wii U eShop.
