One of my favorite series has been absent for a while. Just makes me wonder why? I'm cool with the onslaught Zelda and Mario games nonstop, but what about the other franchises? F zero is the perfect example. Was F zero GX a bad game or something? I know it was rather difficult is that reason why there hasn't been a new one? Or did the game just have bad sales. Now I know F zero is a hugely requested game for the Wii U, and I would totally like to see that happen? Just doesn't make sense why this game hasn't had a new entry in a while. In a way it's like Nintendo has forgotten about it, which saddens me deeply. I want the franchise to thrive no matter what system, it gets booted too. Even wipeout tried to copy the F zero formula but always came up short. What do you crazy nintendo fans think?

F Zero GX sold very poorly, so Nintendo probably doesn't want to bring it back. I would want to see F Zero on the Wii U though. Wouldn't mind if that's what Retro is working on, even though it probably isn't.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

Basically everything on the Gamecube sold poorly so that's no excuse.

I'm thinking it was Mario Kart's fault, lol. I mean, I barely remember GX. (played it though)
They should have it where Mario Kart is portable only, and have F-Zero be on the console. Wii U would be a great time to start Nintendo. >.>

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Thats basically it at least thats what I believe, F Zero was really popular on the SNES but than Mario Kart came around and stole F Zero's thunder. All my friends that loved F Zero basically forgot about it once Mario Kart came out.

1080 snowboarding got the brush off this gen too, i was really hoping for a new entry on both as they are a great alternatives to mario kart.
tbh, i hope that nintendo bring an online version of F-Zero out on the wii u, that would be cool.

F-Zero GX
a game so nice, I bought it twice.

Its one of my most favorites GC game, the game was hard as hell and I love every bit of it.
This is the only hardcore game that nintendo ever made and sadly the last.

There hasn't been an F-Zero this generation, but there was one GameCube game and two GBA games last generation (which is a lot for one gen really). I think it's great that franchises are given a rest every so often as it means they don't get worn out and it's all the more sweet when a new game comes. The anticipation and hunger are much higher. If and when the next F-Zero arrives it will be "Wow, a new F-Zero game!" rather than "Oh, another bloody F-Zero game..." I wish more franchises were treated this way. Familiarity breeds contempt/absence makes the heart grow fonder, etc. There was no Metroid game during the N64 era, which gave Metroid Prime all the more impact.

Because F-Zero doesn't have Mario in it.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

2. Nintendo has made more than 1 hardcore game

Eh, I never liked the series, and the game boy advance game we ambassadors got was the worst of the bunch (imo). So I wouldn't mind them killing the series for good.

From what I hear, they nerfed him badly for Brawl. So I guess Nintendo was just preparing us for the inevitable.

Though I doubt Nintendo would completely get rid of him. They like reusing characters.
