Nintendo has released a Battle Royale style F-ZERO for Nintendo Online members only, F-ZERO 99. Players will compete against 98 other players at the break neck pace of the original. You will have to use strategy with your power meter as not only do you need to win, but you have to survive!
Here is more from the eShop page:
Lightning-fast F-ZERO™ racing with a 99-player twist
Line up with 98 other F-ZERO machines and race to the finish in this thrilling take on the original Super NES™ game. Keep an eye on your power meter as you boost and bash, because speed is just as important as survival. Defend yourself with a Spin Attack and collect Super Sparks to breeze past the competition on the elevated Skyway. The F-ZERO 99 game is available only to active Nintendo Switch Online* members.
Outpace and outlive your opponents in rotating modes
The core F-ZERO 99 mode is just one way to race at breakneck speeds. Mini Prix and Grand Prix modes appear on a set schedule and challenge you to compete and qualify in a series of races.
