F-Zero: Maximum Velocity 2 is a futuristic racing video game and the sequel to F-Zero: Maximum Velocity. It's developed by Sega and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. It will be released on August 17, 2020 worldwide.

Gameplay

Players choose a pilot then a cup. Each cup contains five tracks which consist of three laps each track. At the end of the first lap, players are given a boost. The boost increases their speed, making it difficult to turn, but also depletes their energy. Energy can be restored on energy pads that are on the track. The player will have to restart the track if they fall off of the track or get damaged after running out of energy. Once they run out of lives, they are taken back to the main menu screen.

Pilots

Returning Pilots

F-Zero: Maximum Velocity 2 takes place two years after its predecessor, meaning it takes place twenty seven years after the previous titles. This makes it the second game to not feature Captain Falcon, Dr. Stewart, Pico, and Samurai Goroh as playable pilots. However, several of the characters are either related to, or the successors to the original pilots. There are fifty two playable pilots in total. All ten pilots from F-Zero: Maximum Velocity return in this game. There are forty new playable pilots in the base game. There is one DLC pilot that comes with the free Star Fox DLC pack. And the player can make their own Mii into a pilot.
