Many Nintendo fans are desperate for a new entry in the popular sci-fi racing series, F-zero. However, an avid fan was said to have been allocated enough to spend more than 5 million yen (about $40,000) in Nintendo stock, giving him the opportunity to ask the Japanese publisher about F-zero and its future directly.
On June 29, at an annual shareholder meeting, an investor called and asked Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa if he The company thought about bringing back fan-favorite franchisesmore accurate F-zero. It’s been more than 15 years since the last series was released, and that’s the question It caught the fans’ attention Desperate for a new entry in the future racing title. Now, thanks to a new report, we know who asked this question and why.
according to Business TraineeThe investor you asked about F-zero A Nintendo fan spent 5.6 million yen for 100 shares in February after selling shares of another company. The investor wanted to remain anonymous and is known simply through his Twitter account: Momiji. He describes himself as an “unconditional fan”.
“I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was a kid,” Momiji said. I started. “Among them, I can’t get enough of this sense of speed F-zero. “
He said that while he bought enough shares to get to the meeting I started Not sure to ask a question. Asking a question, he said, is “a bonus.” Nintendo later confirmed with I started 100 shares or more are required to access these annual shareholder meetings.
after knowing F-zeroThe Nintendo chief gave a response that was basically “Thanks for the question, but…no”.
“It’s realistic to develop new titles and releases, including the sequel, for every Nintendo game that people demand,” Furukawa said via Momiji’s verified translation. “But we are very grateful and appreciate the expectations of our fans for our matches.”
Shinya Takahashi, CEO of Nintendo, was a little more optimistic but refrained from making promises of anything.
“During the 77th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders in 2019, we were asked if there were plans to reissue Famicom Detectives Club Takahashi said via translation VGC. “This is an example where we were already actively developing such a title.”
“We can’t tell you if there are any plans to remake a particular game in the future,” Takahashi continued. “But, during development, we always think about the different possibilities that players can take advantage of.”
So I think there is a chance. I don’t know if this answer is worth $40,000, but at least Momiji still owns shares in one of the most famous video game companies in the world. It might be worth something!
