F-Zero X is the next N64 game joining the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service and thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long. Nintendo's acclaimed futuristic racer launches this Friday on March 11, 2022.
Like most N64 re-releases, that support online multiplayer for up to four players. While many fans still hope for Nintendo to develop a new F-Zero game, X getting re-released is still a welcome sight.
F-Zero X Races its Way to Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pack This Friday
Here’s an overview of the game from Nintendo’s YouTube channel:
“Choose from 30 different hover-car racers, including updated versions of the Blue Falcon and other vehicles from the original F-Zero™ game, and get ready to hit the acceleration! Race to the finish line on tracks that twist and turn through the air. However, you will have to avoid the other 29 cars on the track or else face the consequences!
If you're in a competitive mood, try to win a Grand Prix Cup, get the fastest lap time in a Time Trial, or destroy the competition in a Death Race. You can also challenge three friends in the Versus mode. With five separate play modes, hidden vehicles and courses, and an excellent soundtrack, F-Zero X is a worthy racing title to return to!”
F-Zero X re-releases on March 11 for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers. Aside from F-Zero, this service is also home to other N64 classics like Majora’s Mask, Paper Mario, and Banjo-Kazooie. We'll keep you updated as we hear more.
