Poor Captain Falcon. People often say that the Star Fox franchise has it rough, but Fox McCloud is relatively well off compared to Cap. The last F-Zero game, F-Zero Climax for the GBA, wasn’t even released internationally. Then again, it was based on the show F-Zero GP Legend, which only saw 13 of its 51 episodes released internationally before 4kids decided to drop it. Can’t exactly blame them, but it’s still pretty disappointing.
It didn’t help that Nintendo of America didn’t always advertise the franchise. While they weren’t nearly as bad about this as the Fire Emblem franchise before Fire Emblem: Awakening, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) could only find a few English commercials for F-Zero games for this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.
Here are the highlights of this past week.
After the PlayStation Vita got a price drop in Japan, its sales have officially quadrupled. Surely, that’s reason enough to drop the price of the thing internationally, right?
