With the Summer Nintendo Direct apparently taking a backseat this year (well, technically the first weeks of September would still be summer, but you know what we mean!), various leaks and rumors have been one of the main sources of conversation about the online preservation of Nintendo content. the community is excited. One such rumor, which is currently going around in circles, is noted My Nintendo News suggests that Nintendo has some juicy F-Zero news coming soon.
Potential “leakage” is due to @SyluxHunter, a relatively new voice in the gossip community, but one whose predictions have proved correct several times. Last month, they set a release date for Bayonetta 3 and also correctly predicted the games discussed in the June issue of the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase.
Disguised with voice-changing technology, SyluxHunter recently took part in an interview with a Nintendo-focused YouTube channel. SwitchForce, where they announced a cryptic clue about what’s next for Nintendo by simply answering “00110010 00110101 00100000 00110111 00100000 00110010 00100000 00110001 00110110 00100000”. (Verify timestamp video here to see SyluxHunter’s answer to the question.)
Now, we don’t know about you, but this series of numbers didn’t immediately scream “F-ZERO NEWS INCOMING!” us; however, Twitter users quickly deciphered the binary code, with @BozoChozo realizing that the numbers correspond to the letters of the alphabet “YGBP” = You Got Boost Power, stating “Obviously it’s F-Zero.”
SyluxHunter was quick to confirm this theory, although it warned that the announcement might not be as big as you might hope:
Of course, this means that the galaxies are far from being officially confirmed and should be taken with a good pinch of salt. It’s true that SyluxHunter has been on the money in the past, although the lack of any real information here leaves us with one eyebrow touching the ceiling.
Our boosting power power may come back in one form or another, but it’s too soon to step on the gas. Please don’t mess with our hearts, Cylux! We’ve been hurt before.
What do you think of this rumor? What could be the announcement of F-Zero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
