I just hope it controls as nice as it looks and we're in for something special.

The whole color swapping thing and choosing when to use the boost meter as it fills should at least set the gameplay apart a bit from F-Zero, but it's still totally a love letter to the series.

I don't even need to watch this cuz I know it's bought but I'll skim through this to sell myself even further.

Been a long wait for this game. Maybe they should soon announce the Wii U actually can't handle it ;)

Ha! But no need to worry. They've got it locked down, son.

Maybe it's just watching bad people playing (and the guy in this video doesn't seem to understand the mechanics) but I while it looks fast, it still feels like something's not quite right with the controls. If you have a game with a great sense of speed, you definitely need to have the controls match up to it to let you control that speed.

If there's one thing that Wipeout has taught me is that I don't really enjoy these kinds of games without the hilarious F-Zero characters, colorful art, and insane music that are hallmarks of the F-Zero series.

Does that make me superficial? If so guilty as charged!

No, it's not superficial. I kinda feel the same way.

While this looks pretty, it also looks...floaty control-wise. And it's trying too hard to be F-Zero without being F-Zero, if that makes sense.

I dunno, I like what I see, but I'm not 100% sold on it.

@deathly_hallows, @ludist210

Have you guys played the original FAST: Racing League on WiiWare?
Posted: 08/11/15, 19:38:14
Yeah it doesn't hurt that F-Zero plays like a dream on top of being set in a super fun world full of visual and aural delight.

I played the demo? Or did I buy it? I don't remember. It was OKAY.

At least you tried it!

I loved it, and it remains as one of my favorite Wii games (WiiWare or retail!) ever. While it does lack that "fun/wacky/cool" vibe of F-Zero, the course design, music, controls and CHALLENGE were all spot-on, IMO. The game just kept getting better and better the more I unlocked. Can't wait for this new game. Shin'en does good work.

Aurgh, is this game out yet? I'm chomping at the bit to spend my money on it! I feel like I've been waiting forever already. Hurry, Shin'en! I am excite.

I need this game in my life. NAOW-UH.

It looks entirely too pretty to be an indie title. Crazy.

The only thing I really wish it had that it doesn't is pipes.
Posted: 09/07/15, 05:57:24
Looks good. Can't wait. I wonder how much it will cost.

Yeah, that's the thing though. Shin'en is the developer. They are about as "indie" as WayForward or something.

I just get bugged by animation things like the lights signaling the round start dangling weirdly and the ships doing way too violent of a spin (way too cartoony).

I love the Shin'en guy who always plugs this game in the US, slightly awkward English and all. He seems so sincere and jovial. I really hope this game does well for Shin'en.

I wonder how the PS4 port of Nanostray did. I can't imagine it performing too well, with the stiff twin-stick shooter competition on the system.

Wait, they ported Nanostray to the PS4?!?

Posted: 09/08/15, 20:59:02
Sorry, Nano Assault Neo.

Interview with the developers is below. They talk about an F-Zero-inspired mode for the game. Oh man, this game needs to come out right now.

Hmm, sort of interesting at the end. He can't talk about a release date because Nintendo is involved? Why would Nintendo have a say in its release date?
