F-Zero fan buys £30k in Nintendo shares to ask if there is a new sport coming
Some individuals sometimes have an excessive amount of cash to spend, as a Nintendo fan purchased round £30k on Nintendo inventory to ask if the corporate would possibly make an F-Zero sequel.
There are loads of collection that Nintendo have simply sort of left within the mud. Kid Icarus is one such collection, not having had a brand new title since 2012. Despite its cult standing and re-releases of the primary two video games, the Earthbound/ Mother collection hasn’t seen a lot love both. And over on the earth of racing video games, solely Mario Kart has managed to hold on, with F-Zero’s final launch being in 2004.
Enter the hero we did not count on: Momiji, who purchased 100 shares at 56,430 a yen a share again in February. Momiji rose to prominence this week after they requested Nintendo at a current shareholders assembly if a brand new F-Zero is in any respect doable.
Unfortunately for F-Zero followers, it is not trying too good. Company president Shuntaro Furukawa responded to the query saying “It is realistically difficult to develop new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game that people request, but we are very grateful and appreciate the expectations our fans have for our games” (translations from VGC).
Senior managing government officer Shinya Takahashi additionally responded saying “We are always considering how to develop new titles and remakes that can be enjoyed by many players.”
Momiji defined to Business Insider that he was a “die-hard Nintendo fan.” He famous that when he purchased the shares, it wasn’t assured he might ask a query, solely that he might attend the shareholder assembly. “I have been playing Nintendo games since I was a child,” Momiji stated. “Among all, that sense of speed in ‘F-Zero’ is the best.”
Who is aware of if F-Zero will ever make a correct comeback. But perhaps you too might push for it to occur, if you happen to’re keen to spend £30k.
