GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

Nintendo has admitted that it owns a racing franchise called F-Zero. The company released a trailer announcing that F-Zero X is joining the Nintendo 64 tier of the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. The game will enter the membership program on March 11.

F-Zero, a sci-fi racing competition even faster than Formula 1, is a classic franchise that started on Super Nintendo. The publisher subsequently released sequels on Nintendo 64, GameCube and Game Boy systems. But since then it has become inactive. The last F-Zero was Game Boy Advance’s F-Zero Climax, which was released exclusively in Japan in 2004.

Nintendo, of course, has brought back its classic F-Zero games to resell on the eShop. And now it’s doing the same to bolster its offerings for Nintendo Switch Online.
