Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime recently said that Nintendo believes eSports are a great way to reach out to consumers. He’s grateful for the huge eSports presence Smash Bros. has grown into, as well as the prospects for Splatoon and Mario Kart in the future.

This was one of the talking points on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, and I say F-Zero is the perfect way to go about it. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

“Miyamoto said they don’t want to make a new F-Zero game because they can’t think of anything new to do with it, but here’s your answer! It’s always been the hardcore competitive alternative to Mario Kart, bring F-Zero back! It’s a perfect fit for the eSports scene aesthetically and mechanically, especially if they play up the aggressive moves you can make against your opponents. F-Zero gives Nintendo a dedicated reason to get into eSports, and eSports gives Nintendo a reason to finally revive F-Zero.”

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
