It turns out that new Nintendo hardware is not the only news Mr. Takahashi may have let slip at this year’s BAFTAS. During an interview with Fandom, he stated that we may not have seen the last of this franchise.
“You may see that game again,” Takahashi teases with a grin. “We have been trying to make many games and that may be one of them … I personally love Wave Race!”
It’s of note that Shinya Takahashi was not always GM of Nintendo’s Entertainment Planning & Development Division, previously he worked as a developer on the Wave Race franchise.
This does not guarantee that Nintendo is making or planning on releasing a new Wave Race title anytime soon, but we have confirmation that there’s at least one person holding a flame for it. In more good news we did get another confirmation that Nintendo is working on many games right now, which only makes the wait for E3 that much harder.
