About The Game

In the year 2560, the greatest racing competition is the F-Zero championship. Pilots from all over the galaxy risk their lives as they battle for first place in their dazzling hovercrafts. The unforgettable racing game of the Super Nintendo.

The numerous tracks were filled with deadly traps and some of the best players would always find new techniques to improve their lap records in practice Mode. F-Zero also featured one of the most famous soundtracks in the history of video games.
