Nintendo fans have been clamoring for a new F-Zero game for quite some time, and Nintendo has often said, for a variety of reasons, that a new title isn't quite in the cards yet. Recently they've been playing around with the franchise, by releasing its past games on the Wii U Virtual Console, and including F-Zero content in Mario Kart 8's rounds of DLC.
