Former Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aimé doesn’t think Nintendo has “abandoned” its F-Zero series, despite the franchise now not having seen a release for nearly 20 years.The last F-Zero game was F-Zero Climax, which was released for Game Boy Advance in 2004 – just 9 months after Reggie first joined Nintendo.

Ever since then, hardcore fans have been hoping for news of the series’ revival.Speaking in his latest interview with GamesBeat to support his new book, the exec reiterated the long-stated line from Nintendo employees that it hasn’t been able to come up with an innovative idea to justify bringing back the racing series.However, Films-Aimé said he believed Nintendo was likely experimenting with ideas that could eventually be applied to a new F-Zero.“Why was F-Zero abandoned?

The insight I would share is that, at least during my tenure, Nintendo developers were always experimenting with different gameplay styles, always thinking about where a unique experience could be applied back, either to an existing franchise or maybe creating a new franchise,” he said.“My bet is that somewhere in the Kyoto development centers, some developer is playing around with an idea that might be applied to F-Zero.

It’s never a situation, at least in my experience, where the company makes a conscious decision not to continue supporting X-Y-Z franchise.
