Why do you think interest in F-Zero kept declining?

Compare it selling almost 3 million on the SNES to only 650k on the GC (GX) and 160k on the GBA (GP). It's obvious the fanbase has declined. But why did it happen?

How well do you think a new entry would do on the Wii U?

Because all the games were basically the same? Because it can't compete with Mario Kart? Because the game can never live up to the hype surrounding Captain Falcon?

Well, it's SNES numbers were clearly inflated due to it being a launch title. Launch titles always gain a benefit from reduced competition at the start of the system's life. F-Zero Maximum Velocity broke 1 mil thanks to this. Also, GP Legend is clearly incorrect at 160k, that's just North American sales alone and it was also released in Japan. It's probably closer to 400k or so.


Bearing in mind the fact that GC sold like trash, I would estimate F-Zero's current selling power to be about 1 million. It's not super high because it's a pretty hardcore game, but the high level of acclaim for F-Zero GX and the length of time the series has been inactive has created a decent demand for a new entry in the franchise.
