RUMOR: Now fans think they've discovered an official F-Zero Twitter account

One more ride for Captain Falcon?

Earlier this week, fans discovered a Twitter account that appeared to be tied to the 35th anniversary of Mario. There have been rumors of multiple Mario games getting revamped/re-released in honor of the anniversary, but Nintendo is yet to say anything. This Twitter account gave fans renewed hope, and a bit of messing with the password recovery feature showed that the email could be tied to a nintendo.co.jp address. Nothing 100% confirmed mind you, but enough to create excitement.

This discovered has lead to fans scouring Twitter to see what else they can come up with, and today's discovery is quite interesting. Fans have found what appears to be an official Japanese Twitter account for the F-Zero series. It follows the exact same rules as the Mario Twitter account mentioned above, and returns the same n*******.**.** address. Furthermore, the Twitter account was created on March 16th, 2020, so it was not a reaction to the discovery earlier this week.

We still don't know if either of these accounts are legit. Even if they are tied to Nintendo, it could be a case of Nintendo protecting Twitter names just incase they had something to share. It's hard not to get hyped, and there's definitely some compelling evidence, but please remember that this is all just speculation for the time being. Nothing is confirmed until Nintendo says so.

Makes sense. Why would they go to the effort of getting the original voice actor to make eating noises for a Smash character reveal? Because it wasn't hard, he was already there. At Nintendo. Making F-Zero.

Don't do this to me! Don't give me hope!

F-Zero is my favorite racing franchise of all time, which GX being the greatest racing game ever made. I just can't take the disappointment of a false alarm. >_<

Here are a few words to bring down your hope: Even if they're making a new F-Zero, it's not going to be as good as GX. You're welcome.

ok now I'm pretty sure this is fake. Well done fakers, well done.

The reason this is relevant at all is it is from March, so it wasn't caused by the recent news.

However it is very possible that A. Someone did discover the Mario Twitter account months ago but it didn't gain traction until just now, but the person who made this account knew or B. Nintendo made far more than just these 2 accounts in order to make sure they had official accounts prepared for the future. I am going to assume for now its case B.

C. Someone discovered how Nintendo coded their emails with their Twitter accounts, and used the knowledge to craft a pair (or more) of fakes. I just dont believe in F-Zero happening lol

HHHYEESSSS! 'nuff said

Now watch as they announce a new F-Zero game on this account... but it's a third-person shooter starring a trio of faceless bounty hunters/raceway attendants trying to track down Captain Falcon after he disappeared.

Hey, they did it with Metroid, why not with F-Zero?

I’m still not sure what to think about a modern F-Zeto game without analog triggers...

I mean, I don't think they'll put snaking if they make a new game. Also aside from GX I think all the other games in the series don't have analog triggers.

Nintendo wants to protect their domains. That goes as far as Twitter accounts

BINGO!!!!

Usually don’t buy into the leak hype but this sounds too coincidental to me at this point.

Do it Ninty!!!!

I've said it before, but my avatar is staying as Captain Falcon until we get a new F Zero game! Switch would be prefect let's go!

You might be in for the long haul there, bud.
