Nintendo, like PlayStation and Xbox, has multiple franchises resting indefinitely. This is mainly due to the fact that the companies do not see their relaunch as viable because they believe that the current market would not allow them to achieve their economic ambitions. In the vast majority of cases, companies do not tend to delve into these decisions, unless a shareholder questions them. This is where it starts wonderful and crazy story.
When companies are listed on the stock exchange, there is a certain range of investment that allows questions to be asked during the calls with shareholders, which are usually held after the quarterly financial reports. Or, in other types of meetings that companies hold with their investors.
In the case of Nintendo, last Wednesday it held its usual annual meeting with shareholders to discuss the current situation. Well, a “fan” with an excellent financial position wanted to take this opportunity to find out about the future of his favorite franchise. Apparently, it’s not a joke.
Twitter user @momiji_manjyuu claimed to have invested $43,212 dollars in Nintendo stock since last February. His goal was none other than to opt for a place at the Nintendo meeting. So that? I intended to ask when they will launch a new installment of the mythical f-zeroAnd he achieve it.
First of all, it must be said that its movement, wherever you want to see it, it’s complete madness —at the time of the inversion, I didn’t have the question insured—. Although during the pandemic we saw other examples of what a millionaire is capable of doing when he is locked up at home without knowing what to spend his money on —greetings to the NFTs—.
However, you can’t criticize @momiji_manjyuu too much either, since was looking for an answer that millions of fans have wanted to know for a long time. Why the hell hasn’t Nintendo released a new f-zero After so many years?
Nintendo left us in the same
The Kyotoites had an answer, though not as convincing as some might hope. “It’s really hard to develop new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game that people request.but we are very grateful and appreciate the expectations that our fans have for our games,” said Shuntaro Furukawa, CEO of Nintendo.
For his part, Shinya Takahashi, senior executive director of Nintendo, said that the company is “always” considering the development of new titles and remakes. In fact, he recalled that during 2019 they were asked if they had plans to revive Famicom Detective Club, and that same year a new version was underway. Will it be the case f-zero? I wish…
“We can’t tell you if there are plans for future remakes of any specific game, but during development we are always thinking of various possibilities that players can enjoy.“.
The now famous investor, who has preferred to keep his true identity a secret, revealed to Business Insider who has had the opportunity to enjoy Nintendo games since he was a child. However, none of them gave her the same sensations of speed as f-zero.
