It’s been almost 17 years since Wave Race: Blue Storm released on the Nintendo GameCube, but it seems like the wait for a new installment in the Wave Race franchise could be over soon. During an interview with Fandom at the BAFTA Awards last week, Nintendo general manager and former Wave Race director Shinya Takahashi teased that a Wave Race game could be coming to the Switch at some point in the future.
When asked about the franchise coming to Switch, Takahashi stated:
“You may see that game again. We have been trying to make many games and that may be one of them … I personally love Wave Race!” — Shinya Takahashi
It isn’t clear, however, whether he could be referring to a rerelease of an earlier game in the franchise or a brand new title. Either way, it would still be great to see the return of this classic Nintendo franchise on the Switch.
