The Closest We'll Get To a Wii-U F-Zero

While browsing the interwebz I came across an article about Fast Racing Neo, a futuristic racer by Shin'en Multimedia whom you might recognize because of their NanoStray/Assault games. :)

Slated for a release later this year, Fast Racing Neo doesn't have a lot of media to go on (just some screenshots and a teaser trailer), but what there is looks pretty good and F-Zero like. Figured I'd share this since I know there's a few F-Zero fans here. Also, this is giving me another little push into getting the Wii-U.

I saw the E3 trailer last night. It looked like a mix of F-Zero and Star Wars Pod Racing.

The original on the Wii was like the step between Fzero and Wipeout. So if they can keep that up, it will be a fun title.

E3 is the first I'm hearing about this game. I didn't even know there was one on the Wii. I'll have to check it out. What's it called?

FAST Racing League, it's a WiiWare title. It's pretty fun, but it has an Ikaruga-esque polarity mechanic that I'm not sure is a good fit for a racing game.

I don't recall the maker, but since it took quite awhile for F-Zero to show on the GC, there was that game Tube Slider that people kept calling the F-Zero we never got until it appeared. It was by ND Cube though not Shinen, same basic ideas though.
