Wow nice. Should have have been 60hz with the Wii virtual console, but better late than never

I might treat myself to F-ZERO X today!  Well done Nintendo!

 It's a massive disappointment, the analogue stick (lack of) calibration makes it pretty much unplayable.

Quite amateurish. I really hope that people who bought and tried to play it don't completely abandon the X or worse the whole series.

(no hurry since it's a very bad release apparently)

I played it with an irl friend and yeah, it's pretty much unplayable. There's a dead zone, which is terrible for a game where you need very slight angles for adjustment, especially when the stick has a smaller range than the N64 control stick.

It's actually so bad that it took me a little while to notice the input delay ... Playing with worn out controllers is still way better than this.

There's hope at least the controls will be upgraded.  WiiU N64 emulation is a generic program like PC emulators and if they fix controls in this it will fix controls in all other N64 games as well.

Nice to see that people spoke out on the controls on Miiverse (and the internet). Letting the franchise die is one thing, but ruining the existing games is another.

It plays much better now that they patched it. I recommend playing it on the gamepad, since you can adjust the brightness settings to make up for the dark visuals.

A phenomenal racing game now available to a new generation of gamers.

 for anyone that still cares, America is getting FZX on Wii U VC on 1/12.

 

i'll laugh if it doesn't come with the controls patch.

 That would be incomprehensible, but you never know with Nintendo...
