When the Super Famicom was released in Japan in 1990, while Super Mario World once again established itself as an essential classic, another Nintendo game rose to the rank of technological showcase. Developed by the Nintendo EAD subsidiary under the supervision of Shigeru Miyamoto, F-Zero is a real eye-catcher by offering the deluge of visual effects that the new 16-bit is capable of: zooms, rotations, staggering animation speed... Mode 7 , the marketing asset of a Super Nintendo which then revealed itself to the world, offered a unique experience and brought the Kyoto firm into the future.
