BS F-Zero Grand Prix is a remake of the SNES launch title F-Zero that was made specifically for Satellaview in Japan. Many gamers argued that Nintendo was simply shrugging the service off by offering titles such as this game and Dr. Mario instead of delivering entirely new experiences, though in time Nintendo would give gamers what they were looking for. Interestingly, the game features a system that allows you to upload your score so others around the world can view it in a scoreboard, though unfortunately there is no multiplayer. The game was never released outside of Japan, though Nintendo Power did say that Nintendo of America considered releasing it stateside in the form of a cartridge.
There were four versions of the game released, each with a different league including Knight, Queen, King, and Ace. The vehicles in the game were unique to it. They included Blue Thunder, Luna Bomber, Green Amazone, and Fire Scorpion. The drivers of each vehicle are unknown, and are not fan favorites such as Captain Falcon and Samurai Goroh. The game featured the original 15 courses from F-Zero, as well as extras that share the environments from the previously made tracks.
