The Wii U may be coming to an end, with the Switch’s big presentation coming tomorrow and its launch just a few months away, but Nintendo is still doling out a few classic experiences for their current hardware via the Virtual Console. They’ve just revealed what one of tomorrow’s offerings will be, and it’s a big title from a franchise that hasn’t seen much love in recent years: F-Zero X. You’ll be able to grab this Nintendo 64 racing gem and take Captain Falcon through dozens of courses tomorrow for just $9.99.
Here’s Nintendo’s official description of the title:
“Choose from 30 different hover-car racers, including updated versions of the Blue Falcon and other vehicles from the original F-Zero, and get ready to play one of the fastest racers ever! Race to the finish line on tracks that twist and turn through the air. However, you will have to avoid the other 29 cars on the track or else face the consequences! If you’re in a competitive mood, try to win a Grand Prix Cup, get the fastest lap time in a Time Trial, or destroy the competition in a Death Race. You can also challenge three friends in the Versus mode. With five separate play modes, hidden vehicles and courses, and an excellent sound track, F-Zero X still represents one of the best racing titles to date!” — Nintendo
Will you be grabbing this old F-Zero title when it releases tomorrow? Or is it even worth spending money on the Wii U VC when the Switch is launching in just a few months? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
