Confusion – Live Broadcast BS F-Zero 2.

Anyway, I’m sure a few of you have heard of “BS F-Zero 2”. It was a Satellaview download, was it?… well, actually, it seems to also be multiple Satellaview Downloads… or something.

This actually confused me for a while – still does, honestly. There’s no ROM dumps of the Soundlink versions, and it seems most of the internet forgot about it’s existence. But then these vids got uploaded on NicoNicoDouga…

After an introduction to the hosts of the program, you get to practice, and then race, on “Forest 1”. Wait, what’s Forest 1? This track is not in any other game that I recall! And… there’s no healing panels? Crazy! Imagine that in F-Zero X or GX!

As for the voices – it sounds more podcast-like than the Audio Dramas that many of the other games consist of.

And the music… what? “Highway Star”? The music played is the kind of stuff that people now try to S-Rank in Rock Band! In a way, fitting… but not expected.

One more video…

Unfortunately, so far only this one week is up. I’d love to see week 2. (Looking up old JP sites describe a “METAL FORT” track… could that be what week 2 has?)

If anyone can get some more info on this for me, feel free to leave a message.

  1. I believe you are wrong.
    Live broadcast F-Zero 2 ROMs are available.
    These are the ones that just show 2 screens with controls and a robot you can’t exit from.
    I hacked one of these a long time ago and it showed a racing demo and one of the introduction screens shown in the first video.
