Over the last few decades, gaming has seen some incredible creators join hands with companies as they continue to pump out new titles. With names such as Hideo Kojima and Hidetaka Miyazaki, it is time to go back to a classic developer, Toshihiro Nagoshi.

In an interview with VGC, Nagoshi found himself speaking about F-Zero GX. The hit Game Cube title is one that is very dear to Nagoshi. With the game celebrating its 20th anniversary recently, it seemed like a new release would be most fitting. Nagoshi seems in line with the idea, expressing interest in developing a new installment for the series.

F-Zero GX was a massive part of the Nintendo and Sega era. The title became a big hit on the Game Cube, and it was the first time Nagoshi worked on a title that had a massive fanbase. Nagoshi went on to say, “This is a very nostalgic game title for me, and that was when I learned how to create a high-quality game to satisfy a fanbase. I learned a lot, and if there was a chance, I wouldn’t mind working on it again.

Nagoshi puts the ball in Nintendo’s court

Despite Nagoshi showing his willingness to work on the game, he explained it was not simply his decision. The IP is owned by Nintendo, meaning it will be their decision about commissioning a new title. With F-Zero GX, Nintendo has a history of giving it to third-party developers, the way they did it with Sega.

The time seems quite fitting for a sequel. It has been 20 years since a sequel for F-Zero GX came out. A title coming out right now would be incredible, especially considering the hardware upgrades of the current generation of consoles. If it does come out, it could look similar to titles such as Redout. Fans hope to see an update from Nintendo, given Nagoshi showed interest.
