Nintendo’s (NTDOY) annual shareholder meetings are where the company lays out its financial performance and strategies to those investing in it. These meetings typically include Q&A segments, where shareholders can speak directly to company leadership. During the recent Nintendo (NTDOY) annual shareholder meeting, one investor asked the company about a potential return for multiple old franchises, including F-Zero.

It was originally shared by Twitter user NStyles that a shareholder had asked Nintendo about a new F-Zero game during the company’s annual meeting, which we learned thanks to VGC. Apparently, the shareholder also asked about Wario Land, The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls, Trade & Battle: Card Hero, and Baten Kaitos. Nintendo EPD Shinya Takahashi provided the following response (translated to english by VGC).

Twitter user @momiji_manjyuu then came forward, claiming to be the shareholder that asked the question. They assured fans that they “delivered your enthusiasm directly to Nintendo management!” In a subsequent tweet, the user stated “No, I'm sure I'm crazy, but it was worth paying 5 million just to tell Nintendo's management to make a new F-Zero” (translated by Shacknews).

There is a pretty outspoken contingent of F-Zero fans that have long voiced their desires to see the racing franchise return. Having someone bring these wishes directly to the decision-makers at Nintendo is pretty significant in the fight to make that happen. If Nintendo does plan to revive the F-Zero franchise down the line, that remains to be seen, but you can expect to read about it right here on Shacknews.
