A Japanese who remains anonymous if desired Nintendo-Bought $40,000 worth of stock. The amount invested is just enough to hold a full stake in the Japanese video game giant. Apparently this is no coincidence, since as a shareholder he is entitled to attend the investors’ conference, where he had the opportunity to present himself to the President of Nintendo Shuntaro Furukawa to ask a question.
Because what was burning on the nails of the passionate gamer was the question of why Nintendo make so little of his old classics. He cited the racing game franchise “F-Zero” as an example. First published in 1990, the series has not had a new spin-off since 2004. The demand seems to be high, after all “F-Zero” protagonist Captain Falcon is a regular in the popular fighting game “Super Smash Bros.” represent.
Translated by VideoGamesChronicle Furukawa is said to have commented on the question with the following words:
“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.”

A little more optimistic expressed himself Nintendo’s Senior Managing Executive Officer Shinya Takahashi:
“We cannot tell you if there are any plans for future remakes of any specific game, but, during development, we are always thinking about various possibilities that players can enjoy.”
