F-Zero GX To Be Remastered, Rumor Claims

F-Zero GX Remastered

Another classic Nintendo Gamecube game looks to be heading for a remaster. According to a report from Nintendo Prime, F-Zero GX could be remastered for the Nintendo Switch.

The remaster is said to be in development by Next Level Games. That’s the studio behind Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Mario Strikers: Battle League.

“I have come in contact with people that have informed me F-Zero GX Remaster, something we’ve previously reported on from other people including our own sources, is actually in development by Next Level Games,” the outlet says.

Launched in 2003, F-Zero GX was the last main console release in the series from Nintendo. The franchise has remained dormant for the last 20 years on consoles. There were a couple of Game Boy Advance titles released, however. The last was F-Zero Climax in 2004 in Japan.

F-Zero GX featured up to 30 racers in a single race. With a remaster, online multiplayer could be a possibility. If it kept 30 racer events, it could lead to some of the most entertaining racing on the Nintendo Switch since its 2017 launch.

No other details were mentioned such as a release date. Insider Gaming has reached out to Nintendo for comment, but the company declined.
