Nintendo has been on hiatus for several years some of its most beloved franchises by gamers. Fans have strongly called for the return of F-Zero, a futuristic racing series that has been absent since the Wii era.
Despite this, the community is hopeful that Nintendo will revive the saga with a new installment for Switch. However, there is nothing confirmed for now and we have only seen rumors that were denied at the time.
His latest installment for home consoles was F-Zero GX, a GameCube game that was developed with the help of one of SEGA’s most important creatives: Toshihiro Nagoshi, currently known for his work with Yakuza.
The developer recently stated that he would be willing to return to the racing franchise if Nintendo asked him to. However, he thinks there is a reason why we are unlikely to see a new F-Zero anytime soon.
Nagoshi is willing to make a new F-Zero
During a recent interview with Red Bull France (via Nintendo Everything), Nagoshi spoke briefly about his relationship with F-Zero and what he would like to see in the future of the franchise. In case you don’t know, the SEGA creative was a producer on F-Zero GX, so he’s familiar with the series.
The developer declared himself a big fan of F-Zero and stated that he has a lot of affection for F-Zero GX, a project that was important to his career. Nagoshi acknowledged that he would be willing to work on the series again if Nintendo asked him to.
