update [Fri 1st Jul, 2022 05:45]: yesterday, VGC had a story Nintendo shareholders ask the company if they have plans to revive past IPs such as future racing series F-ZERORPG Baten KaitosAnd various other titles like Wario Land..

This question wasn’t cheap.Talk to Business insider,’An individual known asMapleOn social media, he revealed how he spent over 5.6 million yen (over US $ 40,000) on Nintendo’s stock to ask Nintendo’s president Shuntaro Furukawa at Nintendo’s latest shareholders’ meeting.

The same person, who calls himself an “enthusiastic Nintendo fan,” bought 100 Nintendo shares for 56,430 yen per share (over US $ 400 per share) in February after selling shares in another company. He has been playing Nintendo games since he was a kid, and he doesn’t seem to get enough speed from F-ZERO.

There was no guarantee that he could ask questions for the shareholders’ meeting. This was probably a “bonus” in the end. Business Insider also mentions how 100 shares are needed to have direct access to Nintendo’s shareholders’ meeting.

So what was Nintendo’s final reply? We are “always” thinking about how to develop new titles and remakes.This is what was said, courtesy of translation by Robert Cefazon (via VGC):

“It’s practically difficult to develop new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game people demand, but we’re very grateful to our fans for what they expect from our game. I am. “

“We are always thinking about how to develop new titles and remakes that many players can enjoy.”

This is not the first time I’ve heard such a reply from Nintendo. Regarding F-ZERO, the future of the series is concerned due to its absence, but there are people there (Including past employees of Nintendo) Those who still think they have hope.

You can see the original story from yesterday below.

Original work [Thu 30th Jun, 2022 11:45 BST]: Information on Nintendo’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders It became a live yesterdayAnd while dotted with regular numbers and business details, discussions held during the meeting revealed some interesting details.

VGC Report (via @NStyles One shareholder seems to have asked if Nintendo plans to revive past IP through new games and remakes. Shareholders then mentioned several titles, from ambiguous Japanese-only games to the big Nintendo franchise that hadn’t seen a new game for nearly 20 years.

The franchise raised by shareholders is a racing game series F-ZERO; Baten KaitosMonolith Soft’s GameCube card-based RPG series. Wario Land, A spin-off of Mario who hasn’t seen a new game since the Wii. Two intelligent systems games Bell ringing for frogs When High Speed ​​Card Battle Card Hero: Card Hero; When Super control mechanism MG Made by Earth Defense Force Developer.

Another user after NStyles tweeted about the request — @momiji_manjyuu — Claimed to be the person who asked for these titles.

Not all heroes wear capes, right?

The list is Killing We, and many of you, especially want a brand new F-ZERO or Wario Land game, but if not, there are some games that are great for reviving everything.Baten Kaitos — Given the excellence of Monolith Soft Xenoblade — It makes sense, but to be honest, I’m looking forward to all of this coming back.

However, as the meeting notes were released, NStyles states that the only game left there is the future race title.

This is a rough Google Translate of NStyle’s tweets (this could be a grain of salt). It is embedded below and was published after the minutes were published. However, it looks quite promising for F-ZERO fans!

After the general meeting of shareholders, Momiji asked this question, “If the title part is completely cut in a few minutes, it can be judged that there is no pulse, and if F-ZERO remains in a few minutes, it is a pulse ant. You can judge that. “..
He listed multiple titles, but Nintendo left only F-ZERO. Isn’t this a clear attraction of F-ZERO to us?

“You” could be someone in the meeting — Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo’s general manager of entertainment planning and development (although this is based on Google Translate, so it’s not accurate. May not be). Basically, NStyle says that the fact that Momiji was told that the title of the game remained in a few minutes means that Nintendo is aware that it still exists. yay!Of course, that doesn’t make much sense given that Captain Falcon has appeared in everything. Super Smash Bros. It’s a game and I haven’t had a game since the mid 2000s, but what is it?

I’m sure F-ZERO can make a comeback soon. Former Nintendo of America President Reggie seems to think at least Nintendo hasn’t forgotten the series.

What do you want Nintendo to bring back? Please let us know below.
