Nintendo Won’t Make a New F-Zero, So Someone Made One in Game Builder Garage


Fans have been clamouring for a new F-Zero game for years, desperate to finally see the continued adventures of Captain Falcon. Whilst Nintendo’s latest E3 Direct gave us a fresh look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and new reveals in the form of Metroid Dread, Nintendo’s lightning fast racing series was left in the dust. That was until @ZeldaBoi1 (who has also made an awesome Mario Kart game) decided to take matters into their own hands, recreating F-Zero within Game Builder Garage.

ZeldaBoi1’s take on F-Zero is far from the only take on the classic racer on Game Builder Garage, but its colour palette and pixel art surroundings certainly make it look among the most authentic recreations. It seems the creator isn’t done yet, either. After being praised for their work in just a week with the game, ZeldaBoi1 said, “wait until you see what I’ll be able to make after a month”.

If you want to give ZeldaBoi1’s version of F-Zero a go right now, the code to find the game on Game Builder Garage is: G-002-54C-N4P. The initial tweet was followed by multiple comments of praise from other F-Zero fans who feel left out by a new game in the series not having surfaced in almost two decades now. Other twitter highlights in the Game Builder Garage hashtag include a new Sonic the Hedgehog game, a slightly less intense version of Doom Eternal, and a very disturbing screaming Toad.

For those not in the know, Game Builder Garage is Nintendo’s new make-your-own video games platform, released on June 11. Similar in concept to other game making software like Media Molecule’s Little Big Planet or Dreams, the software allows you to create your own video games through designing levels, characters and gameplay. Given Nintendo’s lack of support for F-Zero, it’s not surprising that fans have decided to create their own versions of classic games.

Captain Falcon, the mascot character for F-Zero, remains a Nintendo icon, despite not having a game released in 17 years (the last was F-Zero: Climax on the Game Boy Advance). He appears as a playable fighter in the Super Smash Bros games, and has received his own amiibo as well as having his own cameo appearances in other Nintendo games such as in the Mute City track in Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo fans have taken to Game Builder Garage as a way of living out new versions of their favourite Nintendo franchises that are unlikely to see a return. However, Nintendo did just reveal the first 2D Metroid game in 19 years at E3, and earlier this year retired Nintendo designer Takaya Immamura did say F-Zero isn’t dead. So with this company, anything is possible. Except for a new Tingle game, you’re never getting another one of those.
