F-Zero X Coming To Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

The F-Zero franchise hasn’t seen a lot of love over the past decade or so. The games are loved my many Nintendo fans, but sequels haven’t been green lighted since the GameCube game. There’s always hope a true sequel will be announced for the Nintendo Switch, but for now at least gamers can pass the time playing the N64 F-Zero X on their Wii U systems beginning tomorrow. The control bug that plagued the European release has been fixed. The game will retail for $9.99.


Choose from 30 different hover-car racers, including updated versions of the Blue Falcon and other vehicles from the original F-Zero, and get ready to play one of the fastest racers ever! Race to the finish line on tracks that twist and turn through the air. However, you will have to avoid the other 29 cars on the track or else face the consequences! If you’re in a competitive mood, try to win a Grand Prix Cup, get the fastest lap time in a Time Trial, or destroy the competition in a Death Race. You can also challenge three friends in the Versus mode. With five separate play modes, hidden vehicles and courses, and an excellent sound track, F-Zero X still represents one of the best racing titles to date!
