Get ready to party like it’s 2585!

It’s fast, it’s dangerous and it’s revving up for its fuel-injected return: The classic Game Boy™ Advance game F-Zero™ Maximum Velocity will make its debut on the Nintendo Switch™ system on March 29, available for everyone with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership as part of the Game Boy Advance – Nintendo Switch Online library. Strap in, fire up and put the pedal down!

There’s only one sport that has enough thrills, spills and potential for calamity to keep an entire galaxy on the edge of its seat, and it’s known as the F-Zero Grand Prix. F-Zero Maximum Velocity is set 25 years after the original F-Zero game, with a new generation of racers piloting their plasma-powered machines and using speed bursts (and some strategic vehicle-to-vehicle bumping) in a white-knuckle race to stay ahead of the competition … and stay alive.

Climb the Grand Prix standings to unlock tracks and vehicles while you speed around 20 different courses across four difficulty levels to prove you’ve got what it takes to rank among the galaxy’s most elite racers.

You can also put your skills to the test against 98 other position-jockeying players in the multiplayer F-ZERO 99 game, available on Nintendo eShop to everyone with a paid Nintendo Switch Online membership at no extra charge. Enjoy classic mode featuring a 20-pilot race with rules and tracks inspired by the original F-Zero, create Private Lobbies to go head-to-head against friends and family, and unlock hidden tracks and other in-game bonus rewards.

And make sure you stay on track, because a new update for F-ZERO 99 will be available tomorrow! As part of this update, you can take on the new Mirror Grand Prix, Mirror Tracks for Knight League and kick things into high gear with the Classic Mini Prix. Plus, try Steer Assist to help guide your machine around turns and barriers, and push your piloting skills even higher in an expanded Practice Mode. Then, check out Timed Challenges for limited time in-game rewards, Recommended Challenges for tips on what to tackle next and newly added Achievements. In the future, Mirror Tracks for King League and Queen League will become available, as well.

Intergalactic glory can be yours! Are you brave and fast enough to take it?

Love this! We're really seeing the F-Zero love from Nintendo lately. I do hope they up the cadence of these releases as the Switch nears the end of it's lifecycle, though... Would love more classic games on the system
