New FAST Racing League Screenshots and Info on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Known for their critically praised games on Nintendo's WiiWare service, Shin'en seem to never fail at producing some great software. Previous games include Jett Rocket and Art of Balance. The developer has now finished work on developing their new title, FAST Racing League. A futuristic racer that looks to be taking some inspiration from F-Zero and will be heading to WiiWare.

Shin'en have release new infomation in regards to how the game plays, as well as some techniqual information about it.

Firstly, the games unique gameplay feature comes from "Phase Switching". A system that uses a black and white ship colour to determine whether you get to use speed plates, jump pads or ceiling tracks. For example, if your ship is in a white phase and you used a white speed plate, it would give it a strong boost. If it was in a black phase and you drove over a white speed plate, it would slow you down. To enable phase switching, items are collected on the tracks.

The game features 12 large tracks to unlock, 15 items to unlock and also three leagues to unlock. On top of this, the game supports 1 - 4 player splitscreen multiplayer.

On a more technical side, Shin'en have said the game will run in 50/60hz, 16:9 and 4:3, progressive.

Kickass! I've been looking forward to this forever! I hope it comes out soon.
I loved F-Zero on Gamecube. It was probably my favorite game. I've been hoping for an F-Zero Wii, and this seems just as good.

According to Shin'en, the game is complete and they are just waiting on Nintendo to do their bit.

Awesome news, I too have been waiting for this one.

Shame there will be no online but local multiplayer is better than nothing.

The game looks beautiful, Shin'en definitely know how to make great looking Wii games, and the Wii is missing an F-Zero Type racer, I might give this a download when it's out.
