Pursuing on from the discovery of a non-public Super Mario Twitter account earlier this 7 days, there are now stories that one more account – with a recovery email possibly joined to Nintendo – has been uncovered.
Yep, this time it is really for Nintendo’s dormant F-Zero franchise which has not acquired a new entry in about 16 yrs.
As spelled out by VGC, the guarded Twitter handle @FZeroJP was registered in March 2020 this 12 months – the exact same time as the @SuperMario35th account and is connected to a identical-wanting email that falls in line with Nintendo’s ‘nintendo.co.jp’ tackle.
This address also seemingly matches the e-mail tied to the formal SplatoonJP and SmashBrosJP Twitter accounts.
Of course, at this phase, it truly is unachievable to affirm if the account was produced by Nintendo – even if it was, it could just be the business reserving handles for its IP on social media.
A equivalent story recently did the rounds in just the Xbox neighborhood when Perfect Dark and Fable Twitter accounts were being learned in March and June of this yr, and an Xbox staff claimed it was “conventional practice” to secure social handles for IP.
If Nintendo was to announce a new F-Zero recreation, it would be the 1st one particular considering that the Japan-only 2004 Recreation Boy Progress title, F-Zero Climax.
What do you make of this latest discovery? Do you consider it really is nearly anything truly worth getting psyched about? Inform us down under.
