Why F-Zero? What do you want that we haven’t done before?
Online racing, track editor, ship editor (not the crap version from GX), new tracks, new vehicles, new racers, new cups, new modes, re-modelled courses from X, etc.
You could say the same about Mario Kart, which is essentially the same game re-released over and over again. They've gradually added some of the things I've mentioned above though, and people keep buying it. Not saying I want a new F-Zero as often as the new Mario Karts come out, but there's plenty they could do with a new F-Zero.
A few months ago, there were also rumours of a new Sonic Racing game being developed by Sumo Digital. I loved Sonic Racing Transformed, so could be a great E3 for kart racing fans. A full adventure mode, especially if it can be played in co-op like Transformed, would be very welcome indeed.
The one single thing I'd like to see a return of in a new F-Zero game is the X-Cup (random track generator) from F-Zero X that was unlocked by beating all cups on all difficulties. That thing threw up some properly mental courses, some of which killed all 29 AI racers in the first lap.
One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
As many have already pointed out, Shin’en Multimedia, Fast RMX are the obvious candiates to make a new F-Zero if Nintendo don’t want to do it internally. We know they have some appetite for it, as they asked Critereon to make one for the Wii U in 2011 but it didn’t work out.
As far as I’m aware they usually release a new title every year and currently don’t have anything announced, so it’s a possibility.
