F-Zero X is the franchise's first showing on the Nintendo 64. F-Zero X was released in 1998. It was developed by Nintendo EAD and published by Nintendo. Everything is better in this iteration with more playable characters, more courses, and more modes. A second game in the same engine was out on the Nintendo 64 Disk System (Nintendo 64DD) in Japan with a track editor. The original F-Zero X was later re-released on the Wii Virtual Console.


Grand Prix

Getting close to the finish line!
Getting close to the finish line!

The main mode of F-Zero X in which there are five cups selectable (two of them have to be unlocked like the X Cup, a cup filled of randomly generated courses). Four difficulties are also selectable (Master as to be unlocked). With more cars on the track (30 to be exact), the racing is fast and chaotic as opposing racers will bump the player's car as well as a rival driver the player has to beat. Whoever has the highest number of points wins the cup after five courses. Like the original F-Zero, the car has a health meter and will lose one life if it brakes down (health is at zero) or fall off the stage. Also from the original, boosting is in as soon as the second lap begins as using it takes off a portion of the car's health.

Time Attack

This mode is the player's car and only their car going through a certain course as fast as possible.

Death Race

The goal of this mode is to take out all the competition as fast as possible.


Up to four players locally can compete on any of the courses.

Characters, Vehicles and Vehicle Grades

Each vehicle is given a letter grade ranging from A (top) to E (lowest) on body, boost and grip.

Body: The body rating represents the machine's strength in regards to the damage it can withstand from collisions against the wall and competing racers.

Boost: The boost rating represents the machine's boost usage in terms of speed increase and duration.

Grip: The grip rating represents the machine's grip in terms of maintaining control while turning a corner.
