Ex-Nintendo Designer Says F-Zero Isn’t Dead, It’s Just ‘Hard to Bring Back’ – IGN
Imamura spoke to IGN about his 30-year career at Nintendo, and he revealed that he considers F-Zero GX to be “the ultimate F-Zero.” However, 2003’s F-Zero GX is 18 years old and is the last console F-Zero game to be released.While many Nintendo franchises have lived on with new entries, F-Zero has been quiet for nearly two decades, although it wasn’t for lack of trying.
“Of course, I’ve thought about it many times, but without a grand new idea, it’s hard to bring it back,” Imamura says.
Despite that, Imamura reassures us that the F-Zero series isn’t dead, even with him no longer being at Nintendo.
Imamura also delved deep into the development of F-Zero GX, which took inspiration from Daytona USA and was developed by SEGA’s Amusement Vision alongside Nintendo.
