Nintendo It has an extensive library of games. However, between all of The Legend of Zelda and Mario, there are several franchises that haven’t seen a bit of a backlash in recent years. When asked about the possibility of seeing a new installment or remake of old properties, the Big N commented that they are always considering these options.
During its annual meeting with investors in 2022, Nintendo executives were questioned before the possibility that series like F-Zero, Star Fox and more will have a remake in the future. Faced with this question, Shuntaro Furukawa, president of Nintendo, commented as follows:
“It’s really hard to develop new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game people request, but we’re very grateful and appreciate the expectations our fans have for our games.”
Alongside this, Shinya Takahashi, Senior Executive Director, responded to the same question by commenting that:
“We are always considering how to develop new titles and remakes that can be enjoyed by many players.
During the 79th AGM 2019, we were asked if there were any plans to remake the Famicom Detective Club series, and at the time, we were planning a remake. This is an example where we were already actively developing such a title.
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.”
In this way, it is clear that Nintendo is always taking into consideration the wishes of fans, and assess how successful a remake, remaster, or sequel will be in today’s market. Right now, they could very well be working on something related to Wario Land, F-Zero, Star Fox, Chibi Robo!, and more, just he’s not ready to talk about it.
On related issues, a manager has questioned Nintendo about F-Zero. Similarly, this is the summary of the past Direct.
The idea that Nintendo is always working on something new is exciting. However, waiting to have official information is something that could bother more than one. You never know how many times a new F-Zero has been canceled and internally approved.
