Tomorrow Wave Race 64 will make a splash on the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, and as much as we love this N64 classic, a brand new entry would be welcome.
It appears that not only fans of the series would like to see a more serious return of Wave Race – the developers of Fast RMX, Art of Balance and The Touryst Shin’en Multimedia are also calling for a “new” Wave Race game on Switch. The German company’s Twitter account even suggested a “modern remix”, calling N64 one of the best games of all time:
@ShinenGames responds to @NintendoUK: “Wave Race 64! One of the best games of all time. We’d love to play the new Wave Race on Switch. Perhaps something like a modern ReMiX.”
Unsurprisingly, this answer was enough to make Nintendo and Wave Race fans think. Some even thought that the idea of ”remixing” the GameCube and Nintendo 64 game might be a good idea.
Wave Race has always been known as sort of a visual showcase for Nintendo hardware, and Shin’en (as many of its fans have pointed out) has a history of delivering impressive graphics on Nintendo systems with games like Fast RMX and The Touryst. So this could be a marriage made in heavenassuming it’s not some teasing thing anymore… it’s probably not).
Of course, another Nintendo series that we’re sure would be a perfect fit for this developer is F-Zero. The N64 entry was just recently added to Switch Online, but we haven’t seen a new entry in a very long time. How about giving this team a shot, Nintendo?
