F-Zero isn't dead – Nintendo insider hints at upcoming announcement

A proven source of Nintendo news has implied something F-Zero related is in the works but it may not be a new game.

Out of all of Nintendo’s dormant franchises, F-Zero’s fans seem to be among the loudest and most persistent. They’ve been begging for a new entry for nearly 20 years now; one fan even became an investor just to directly ask the company about it.

Nintendo’s answer at the time was typically wishy-washy and didn’t indicate if something F-Zero related was in development or not.

Now, it’s been suggested that Nintendo is doing something with the series, but it may not be precisely what fans want or expect.

Rumours of a new F-Zero would normally seem more like wishful thinking, but the source for this one has a track record of accurately leaking Nintendo announcements in the past.

They claimed Mario Kart 8 Deluxe would be getting DLC the day before the Nintendo Direct reveal and that Bayonetta 3’s release date was October 28 a couple weeks before the official announcement.

They even correctly stated that Nintendo’s June showcase would be all about third party games, including NieR:Automata and Persona ports for Nintendo Switch.

The leaker, known as Syluxhunter on Twitter, was recently asked in an interview with YouTube channel SwitchForce for a cryptic hint of what’s next for Nintendo.

They only provided a string of numbers in binary, but another Twitter user, Bozo the Chozo, deduced that it stood for the letters ‘YGBP’ and thus a reference to ‘You got boost power,’ a phrase said by the announcer in a couple of the F-Zero games.
