I trust Retro to make a good game out of this concept, but that’s pretty disappointing after 4 years of waiting for their next project...

Is this gonna be a running gag in this thread? Because it kind of turned into one.



Some days I just blow up.

This is the most insulting thing since Mute City in Mario Kart 8.
This is the most glorious thing since Mute City in Mario Kart 8.

Seriously, though. Nintendo HATES F-Zero. Literally no reason this couldn't have been an F-Zero game. That really pisses me off, and I can't overstate that, but at the same time if this is true, it'll undoubtably be the best StarFox game ever made, and I say that with all the sincerity in the world - this sounds amazing. StarFox pod racing.

I want this so bad now but like I also want F-Zero and I also want Diddy Kong Racing Returns and I HATE that Nintendo pulls this shit.

tl;dr I'm very excited and conflicted.



Well, this is new.

It would take something like this to bring you back, huh? (haven't seen you around at all)

Yeah, agreed, I guess. I wanna believe this is a proper Star Fox racing game (as in, you're still flying Arwings and such), so I'm not sure how much it could've been an F-Zero game, but, yeah. We still need proper F-Zero, and proper Star Fox too.

oh! So it's a sequel to one of the endings of star Fox Command lol!

I'm down for this though, Sounds cool.

Who would've thought that G-Zero of all things was (potentially) canon.

I'm up for it though.

Can you feel that? I can feel that E3 tingle in my nipples .



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

As much as I trust Retro to create an incredibly polished and fun game, I hope that this is NOT true! I highly doubt they would be so secretive over the past 4 years for a StarFox racing game.....If true, I'd rather they create a base StarFox game to get that series back on track, but a racing game? I'd rather take F-Zero!!!!

Retro is probably one of most secretive team in industry, like that isnt enugh, team that works for Nintendo.

No way in hell this is real. Why make a spin-off to a game that did not perform well on Wii U when you already have a dedicated futuristic racing IP in F-Zero.

I'm expecting that this leak is so fake that we are going to end up getting F-Zero from Retro instead of this BS.

Star Fox Zero wasnt good game, that doent mean that next game want be good or that will perform same. F-Zero also was never strong IP.

This just doesn't make much sense. Why not do an F-Zero game if they wanted to make a racer with a futuristic/sci-fi setting? Or why not do a proper reboot of Star Fox and do for it what they did for Metroid with Prime if they wanted to make a Star Fox game? And most of all, why on earth would it have taken them all these years just to make a Kart game? None of this adds up to me, so I can only hope this is fake.

Nothing tells us its cart game, and it sounds that game is quite big.

I'm talking on the fact that Star Fox Zero bombed hard for Wii U exclusive standards. I just cant comprehend why they would go right back to an IP that severely underperformed on a disappointing system where nearly every Nintendo exclusive sold well on. I think if they wanted to rework the Star Fox franchise this would be the exact way to do it (because let's be honest, Star Fox's system of a $60 game for a 3 hour on rail shooter is sorta outdated in today's modern gaming landscape). However, Star Fox (minus Star Fox 64) has performed relatively equal to F-Zero. I just think it would be better to revisit a franchise that hasn't seen the daylight for 15 years than to rework a franchise that is seemingly dying as compared to its peak.

Again, if this is real, I trust Retro to make it work, it's just not what I wanted and I don't think it's likely. Until this is shown off in the E3 Direct, I have no reason to believe this is real.



Maybe the real reason it's taken Retro 4 years for this is because they couldn't decide if they wanted to make a Diddy Kong Racing game, an F-Zero game, or a Star Fox game. So they combined them all lmao.



To be fair if this is real, Mario+Rabbids sounded atrocious when first leaked and that turned out to be good. This still sounds like a better idea than that did.

The problem is Star Fox has had an inconsistent pass with leaks. I remember people were hammering on the rumor of a Star Fox and Metroid crossover, which turned out to be false. I get that other websites supposedly have heard similar things, but the official rumor leak we got was a piece of paper with a logo. It's one of those wait and see sort of leaks.
