Shigeru Miyamoto recently had an interview with Smosh, and in that interview he stated that a new F-Zero game may indeed be possible if they find the right controller interface.
We see a lot of other designers who are kind of making more traditional racing-style games, so we try to focus on something that feels a little bit more gamey. So maybe if we create a new type of controller interface and we find that controller interface is particularly suited for F-Zero, then maybe we’ll do something again with it in the future.
It’s good to hear that Nintendo is finally at least considering making another F-Zero game. I’m not sure if I agree with the whole “controller interface” thing. I don’t see why they can’t just use the gamepad or pro controller the standard way much like they did in Mario Kart 8. I can see them wanting to add some more mechanics here and there, but I think they’re over thinking this one a bit. People really just want to see an F-Zero game. We don’t need a bunch of crazy bells and whistles. But it’s Nintendo, they’re always thinking of new ways to do things and whatever they come up with, it’s likely to be good.
What do you think of Miyamoto’s idea?by
