Fans have been clamoring for a new F-Zero game for years, desperate to finally see the continuation of Captain Falcon’s adventures. While Nintendo’s latest E3 Direct gave us a new look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and new reveals in the form of the Metroid Dread, Nintendo’s super-fast racing series has been left in. dust. It was until @ ZeldaBoi1 (who also made a great Mario Kart game) decided to take matters into their own hands by recreating F-Zero in Game Builder Garage.
ZeldaBoi1’s take on F-Zero is far from the only classic racing game on Game Builder Garage, but its color scheme and pixel art environment certainly makes it one of the most authentic recreations. . It looks like the creator hasn’t finished yet either. After being praised for their work in just a week with the game, ZeldaBoi1 said, “wait and see what I can do after a month”.
If you want to try the ZeldaBoi1 version of F-Zero right now, the code to find the game on Game Builder Garage is: G-002-54C-N4P. The initial tweet was followed by several praising comments from other F-Zero fans who feel left out by a new game in the series that hasn’t surfaced for nearly two decades now. Other Twitter highlights in the Game Builder Garage hashtag include a new Sonic the Hedgehog game, a slightly less intense version of Eternal destiny, and a very disturbing howling toad.

For those who don’t know, Game Builder Garage is Nintendo’s new do-it-yourself video game platform, released on June 11. your own video games by designing levels, characters and gameplay. Considering Nintendo’s lack of support for F-Zero, it’s no surprise that fans have decided to make their own versions of classic games.
Captain Falcon, F-Zero’s mascot character, remains a Nintendo icon, although there hasn’t been a game released in 17 years (the last one was F-Zero: Climax on Game Boy Advance). He appears as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. games, and has received his own amiibo as well as his own appearances in other Nintendo games such as the Mute City track in Mario Kart 8.
Nintendo fans have turned to Game Builder Garage as a way to experience new versions of their favorite Nintendo franchises that likely won’t see a return. However, Nintendo just revealed the first 2D Metroid game in 19 years at E3, and earlier this year retired Nintendo designer Takaya Immamura said F-Zero was not dead. So with this company, anything is possible. With the exception of a new Tingle game, you will never get another.
