If you want to ask a direct question to the president of Nintendo himself, you’re going to have to invest more than $40,000 in stock.
Nintendo is one of those classic video game companies that still persist, and with it hundreds and hundreds of licenses behind them, some intellectual properties where most of them have reached our times, but where others have remained in the past, buried among our regards.
And as soon as you’ve been in the video game industry for a couple of decades, the F-Zero series will surely ring a bell, one of those futuristic driving licenses that Nintendo users love but that the Kyoto-based company itself hasn’t returned to exploit since 2004.
And since it is quite complicated to ask Nintendo’s own president directly about the company’s plans to rescue licenses like F-Zero, someone from the shareholders’ meeting wanted to represent the public and ask about a hypothetical remake or new installment of the series.
I am the one who asked this question! I delivered your enthusiasm directly to Nintendo management! https://t.co/PUEA46I8Zk

And as collected Business Insidera video game user spent about $40,000 in Nintendo shares to have the opportunity to enter the meeting of shareholders of the Japanese company and be able to ask a question, specifically about classic series that Nintendo has not rescued again.
Specifically, you need a package of 100 shares to enter the Nintendo shareholders’ meeting, and thus be able to attend the meetings, and perhaps have the opportunity to ask questions since this is not entirely guaranteed.
So the user, who wants to remain anonymous, asked the president of Nintendo, Shuntaro Furukawaif the company had considered relaunching classic franchises like F-Zero that hasn’t delivered since 2004.
Furukawa responded that “It really is hard 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.”.
On the other hand Shinya TakahashiCEO of the company, also responded by noting that “we are always considering how to develop new titles and remakes that many players can enjoy”.
In any case, given the responses, it seems unlikely that Nintendo will be releasing a new F-Zero installment anytime soon.
