    Why all the movie games get that late released in Japan?

    Yeah, that really strange. And in this case I would say, that it`s also a shame, since this one is good [​IMG]

    To be fair this game shouldv'e been released in japan first along with the movie since the movie is based off a japanese manga!

    Yeah this is way more than a year since being released here. Better late than never I guess. To anyone out there who hasn't played it yet I highly recommend it. Especially if you are an F-Zero fan. I do realize that the majority of licensed games suck, but this one stands out as as actually being pretty cool. The GFX alone make it worth the ride.

    This game was really good, shame it was short and lacked online. Still I'd say it was second to Mario Kart in the racing genre.

    If you've never seen nor care about Speed Racer, it adds to the F-Zero X-ness of the entire thing.

    Just like how, in that N64 game, they added a bunch of racers you are suppose to know but never really get introduced to, you unlock and can play as racers here, in different fun looking cars at super speed.

    Until we get a legit F Zero, this is the best thing out there by far.

    I really doubt we'll get a DS game now to be honest. Maybe the next handheld.

    Even a Wii game is getting doubtful, despite F-Zero X doing very well on VC. If anything we'll just get at least a "New Play Control" F-Zero GX, with bad motion controls and it being a lot easier.

    Does sacrificing virgins work on getting things done?

    It's kinda sad that the Japanese have been denied this game for so long. This is among the top echelon of racing games on the DS. Personally, I liked this better than MKDS, but to be honest, I was never much of a fan of cart racers.....too cutesy for my tastes.


    BTW, whatever happened to Gravity Zero Racing that was supposed to have come out a long time ago for DS? It looked like an F-Zero clone....

    Anyone know?

    Yea this is a great racing game for the DS and its always on my cart no matter what new games comes out. Plus, the Japanese logo looks cooler.

    Yeah, concealed is the only person in this topic who knows what he's talking about. The game just got dumped, but it was released almost a year ago. Stop assuming dump dates equal release dates.

    Seems kind of odd to me that this was released in Japan under the Americanized "Speed Racer," instead of the actual Japanese anime/manga title "Mach Go Go Go." Same thing with the movie.

    Shouldn't this game be called "Mach Go! Go! Go!" in Japan?
