F-ZERO 99 saw a shadow drop last week, and players have been racing to their hearts’ content on a number of classic tracks. While there’s plenty of fun to be had already, it seems there’s a slight chance some very exclusive tracks could be on the way sometime down the road.

Dataminers have gone digging around the source for for F-ZERO 99 and something quite interesting has been found. Among the track listings for locations we already know, there are also files with names from BS F-ZERO Grand Prix 2, the Satellaview-only F-ZERO sequel that never saw release outside of Japan.

While most of the datamined track names are just Mute City I placeholders for the time being, the files do include mentions of Forest I and II, which were indeed part of BS F-ZERO Grand Prix 2. It seems awfully odd to include a variety of placeholder names for tracks only to have them all turn out to be Mute City 1, and that’s especially true for these BS F-ZERO Grand Prix 2 names.

Only time will tell if Nintendo is planning to revive these classic tracks, or their mention is nothing more than an idea that got scrapped before release.

Thanks to AlienboyVA for the heads up!

F-Zero 99 is so damn good. Was it the F-Zero we all wanted? No. But I'm glad this game exists and am having a blast with it. So the more content the better.
