Captain Falcon artwork in Mario Kart 8
Reply to this Post

 In Mario Kart 8 there's a section where you can scan your amiibo, the face of the character are shown. Almost every one of them come from a previous game, but for Captain Falcon, where's that artwork coming from?

 I don't think it's coming from Smash, the position is not the same:

Any info on this?

it looks like brand new artwork without a game attached to it.

at some point they had to make new artwork since they couldn't just use GX renders forever without them looking dated.

Maybe you're right, but they used the Samus artwork from Metroid Prime (2002)

By the time I was writting this, I found something very interesting:

it might also have to do with the fact all of GX's stuff has shared copyrights with Sega and they might not want to deal with that (cheaper to just make a new render they fully own)

 

and that news just makes me sad. F-Zero has never needed a special controller. a normal controller works perfectly. miyamoto needs to let someone else work on the series.

That's a good theory, it's maybe simply that.
 
For the news, I don't know how to feel about it, maybe he's lying like he did many time before just to not announce a new F-zero yet. The Wii U has many, many controllers available for him to choose from. Like you said, a normal controller is enough, but even the Gamecube controller is compatible with the system. But a least, he kind of said that F-Zero is dormant, not dead. Who know? Maybe another team are developing the new F-Zero right now. It's not because Miyamoto and Takaya Imamura are not supposedly working on a F-Zero right now that nobody is working on it.

He's not exactly pulling strings either.. almost as if he's looking for an excuse to not make it happen.

it's so sad that he's so against a new game. our only hope is whoever takes over after he retires. we might have to wait another 5-10 years though.

 They say they delayed Super Metroid until they absolutely needed an action game on the Super Nintendo, I think Nintendo has a lot of cards they keep up their sleeves.

Like he's been saying for a while. He also mentioned that the old style of F-Zero will not work in today's climate? (whatever that means) Nintendo seems to be a weird beast when it comes to a lot of things. Like the Star Fox series (which had taken forever to get the next iteration pushed though), they end up not wanting to go back to the F-Zero/Star Fox games, and seem to like pushing out Super Mario and Smash games instead. I presume that it's like how EA pushes out a Madden every year (it makes money, people will buy it in bulk, and it's a proven commodity). 

It just sucks that we may never really get an awesome sequel from Nintendo for the F-Zero series.
