Imagine buying $40k of stocks to get info on F-Zero!

Many Nintendo supporters are fervently hoping for a new installment of the well-known F-Zero racing series. Only one supposedly devoted fan reportedly spent more than 5 million yen (approximately $40,000 US) on Nintendo shares, allowing him the opportunity to speak with the Japanese publisher regarding F-Zero and its future.

A shareholder phoned in on June 29 to a shareholder meeting and asked Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa if the business had thought about reviving fan favorites, notably F-Zero. The question drew the attention of fans eager for a new installment in the futuristic racing game because it has been more than 15 years since the series' previous release. According to a recent article, we know who asked this query and why.

Business Insider claims that the investor who inquired about F-Zero is a fan of Nintendo who bought 100 shares for 5.6 million yen in February after selling stock in a different firm. The investor, who requested anonymity, is only recognized by his Twitter handle, Momiji. His self-description is "diehard fan."

Momiji told Insider, "I've been playing Nintendo games since I was a kid. "Among them, F-sensation Zero's of speed is something I can't get enough of."

The president of Nintendo responded to a question concerning F-Zero by essentially saying, "Thanks for asking,"

According to Furukawa, whose translation Momiji validated, "it is actually difficult to generate new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game that fans seek." But we respect the high standards set by our supporters and are extremely appreciative of them.

The managing executive officer of Nintendo, Shinnya Takahashi, seemed a little more upbeat but refrained from making any promises.

"We were asked if there were any intentions to remake the Famicom Detective Club series during the 79th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders in 2019, and, at that time, we just so happened to be preparing a remake," Takahashi remarked through translation from VGC. "That is an example where we were already working on such a title," the author said.

“We cannot tell you if there are any plans for future remakes of any specific game,” Takahashi continued. “But, during development, we are always thinking about various possibilities that players can enjoy.”
