Is Wave Race Set for a Comeback?

Making waves

Anyone remember Wave Race? The personal jet-ski racing game that was always well received by the gaming population? Well it might be about to make a comeback

We haven’t had a Wave Race game since Wave Race: Blue Storm for the Nintendo GameCube which was commercially and critically successful. Many praising the superb weather and water effects for a console at the time. There had been a title on the previous generation of consoles in the Wave Race 64 which was also well received. The original of the three games came much earlier as a GameBoy release. So it seems odd that the game series has been dormant for so long.

The game series has always been about fun and there have been a great variety of different modes. So it would be great if Nintendo could revive it, seeing though it’s been a fair while for the series…and while they’re at it, how about a new F-Zero.
