One of the big announcements of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation was confirmation that the Kyoto-based company has been working on F-Zero 99, which is available now for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Takaya Imamura, who worked the designer for the original F-Zero title for the Super Nintendo system quickly took to social network X to express his thoughts on the announcement and lavished it with praise saying that he would personally like to send his appreciation to mastermind behind F-Zero 99, as the concept is brilliant and that he could “feel the love” put into it. He closed by saying that he looks forward to the revival of the classic IP in the future.
“A bold arrangement while respecting the original elements! I could feel the love for F-Zero. I would like to express my greatest appreciation to the creator. I sincerely look forward to the revival of the IP on this occasion.”
