Game News F-Zero: A fan spends 40,000 euros to ask Nintendo to revive the franchise

A Nintendo fan bought a large number of shares for the sole purpose … to ask the Japanese publisher’s executives a question!

A nintendo fan has decided buy shares from the publisherin order to attend a meeting of shareholders and ask the question that bothered himdirectly to the executives of the firm.

40,000 euros per question

In news published yesterdaywe explained to you that Nintendo execs were talking about the difficulty of reviving some old franchises, during a meeting of shareholders. Today, we know a little more about the conditions of these declarations. In fact, we learned from Business Insiderthat he’s a Nintendo fan, by the name of Momiji on Twitter, which bought no less than 5.6 million yen (about 40,000 euros) of shares in Nintendo, who asked the question. We got confirmation, after the Business Insider reporter Travis Clark contacted him directly.

“Thanks for asking but…no.”

After purchasing these shares, the Nintendo’s new investor was able to attend a shareholder meeting with management. On June 29, he was able to take advantage of the opportunity to ask Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa if the company is considering reviving any of the franchises fan favourites, especially F-Zero. Furokawa would have answered “Thanks for asking but…no.” Nintendo’s general manager Shinya Takahashi was a little less adamant: “We are always considering how to develop new titles and remakes that can be enjoyed by many gamers.” But Momiji has good confirmed to Business Insider that the answer transcribed by VGC was correct. This is the one we shared with you yesterday:

It’s really hard to develop new titles and remakes, including sequels, for every Nintendo game that people want. Nevertheless, we are very grateful and appreciate the wishes that players have for our games.

An expensive way to ask your question … and without guarantee!

If you want to be like this fan, and ask your questions directly to Nintendo bosses without going through Twitter and the possible intermediary of a community-manager … it will be necessary spend as much as him ! Indeed, a Nintendo representative confirmed to Business Insider that to access the shareholders’ meeting, you must buy at least 100 shares in Nintendo. Please note that participating in the meeting does not in any way assure you of being able to ask the question, since Momiji explained to Business Insider that it was above all “a bonus”. He spoke at the right time, in the right place…

The F-Zero franchise hasn’t released a game since 2004 and F-Zero: Climax on Game Boy Advance.
