What is F-Zero?
F-Zero is a series of futuristic racing video games created by Nintendo's EAD division. The first game, F-Zero was released for the Super Nintendo back in 1991 and its success led to multiple sequels on various Nintendo consoles. The series is known for its high-speed racing sequences. In 2003, there was an Anime series by Ashi Productions titled F-Zero: GP Legend. 51 episodes of the show were produced in total. It is a reboot of the F-Zero franchise that takes place in the year 2201, with police detective Rick (as known in the North American version) as one of the protagonists, who works with the Mobile Task Force.
