It's been over 16 years (17 outside of Japan) since the last F-Zero entry. Fans are desperate and despite the odd cameo and Captain Falcon regularly appearing in the Super Smash Bros. series.
In a recent interview with Red Bull from November 9, Sega employee and F-Zero GX producer Toshihiro Nagoshi was asked whether he would be willing to work on the F-Zero series again if Nintendo approached him.
Grégory de Meyer: You were a Producer on F-Zero GX, which to this day is still considered a classic, and arguably one of the best racing games ever. Would you be willing to work on F-Zero again if Nintendo asked you to? Would the game be as tough as its predecessor?
Toshihiro Nagoshi: Hmm… Putting aside the possibility of this happening, I have to admit that I have a great deal of affection for F-Zero GX. If the opportunity presented itself, I wouldn't be against it. And in this case, I would like to make a game with challenge. I'm assuming that if Nintendo just wants a “fun and accessible” racing game, they already have Mario Kart for that.
