     Nintendo has not even given a single hint that this is even in development. I know, I really want a new F-zero too.... :(

    Reminds of a certain Kotaku, article. Oh the sad sad truth, I wish Nintendo sheds light on the issue pronto.

    F-Zero is such a great series. I'm sure they'll put a title out for the Wii. It may not be anytime soon though. It was the only thing I wanted to see at E3. But we can't have everything we want.

    It's funny how I don't like racing games unless it's F-Zero. It's just so over the top and fast paced. How can you not like it? =P

    Yeah I actually talked to some of my friends about a F-Zero game on the Wii a while ago. Too bad it'll take forever to come out. :(

    Yeah. I just hope for pumped out graphics (IMO it had the second best graphics on the Gamecube, next to Wind Waker) and some good Wii controls. Although it may be difficult to add steering controls because it's such a fast paced game.

    Plus, online! I don't want a wimpy 4 player race or anything. A full 30 player race would be amazing, although unlikely. Perhaps 12 players like Mario Kart's?

    I'm normally not a big racing fan, but was a late convert to the series with F-Zero GX. Normally I don't like games that are akin to throwing your head against a brick wall, but there's something rewarding about seeing the wall yield every 20th blow or so. ;) Especially the way GX rewarded you with custom parts.

    I do hope to see one for the Wii, I could use some new F-Zero down the line.

    On-line play would be cool, however it would have to be good for a fast game like F-Zero. But considering how well Brawl turned out...

    No, but they sure know how to kill franchise like Donkey Kong though.

    As long as Nintendo don't feel the need to cater to all the casual fans by sticking a less than needed "Wii Wheel" control system on and, instead, continue the series tradition of being a damn fine racing game, then i will be pleased. There is no way they would kill off a franchise like F-Zero.

    Poor Donkey Kong. At least his Handheld games are pretty good.

    Completely agree...although the wii wheel is good, in a game as fast paced as F-Zero it would be damn hard to use...you would just look like a madman spining that thing all over the place :P...a nuchuk + wiimote configuration would be the best

    A new F-Zero is expected. A new Punch-Out? Not so sure.

    It will come. F-Zero GX was awesome but unfortunately I don`t think the next game will follow on its footsteps since I read an interview with Miyamoto a while ago where he said he was not happy with the result of the game, I think he said something about it being way too hard. But personally that`s one of the main reasons why I think it is the best racing game I have ever played.

    Yea.... Id love another Donkey Kong game on the Wii. Not a racing game like barrel blast though. Probably a platformer.

    The DK series needs another platformer. Right now I think Nintendo has no idea what to do with DK since he has starred on music and racing games on the Gamecube. In my opinion the Bongo games were very dumb.

    As long as they keep the DK games being side scrolling it´s fine by me...otherwise he will suffer the same destiny as Sonic...although DK is wayy cooler :P (by the way, this is a long quote...)

    Yup, I've heard about this too,  Matt Casamassina has mentioned it on numerous occasions.  The other problem with F-Zero is that it's not very well received in Japan for the most part, and seeing Nintendo is such a Japanese centric company who knows what they'll do.  I'd love to see another F-Zero, but if they're just going to rehash GX or dumb it down then I'd rather let it die.
