F-Zero Climax, released in 2004 on the GBA, is both the last F-Zero game and a Japanese exclusive. The game features improved graphics over previous GBA entries, introduces new vehicles and characters, a includes a full storyline, and more.
The most unique feature F-Zero Climax boasts is a robust track editor. You can create tracks from various pieces, share them via password or link cable, and play them both solo and in multiplayer.
F-Zero Climax contains a large amount of unlockables and secrets, including both gameplay modes and story content. There is Grand Prix, Time Trial, Zero Test, Survival Mode, and more, all available to test the player’s piloting skill. Story content includes full synopses of story chapters, character profiles, and vehicle profiles.
F-Zero Climax’s story follows Rick Wheeler and the Galaxy Mobile Platoon’s racing escapades. Rick Wheeler is awoken from “cold sleep”, only to find his arch-nemesis Zoda still alive and well 100 years later. Will the Galaxy Mobile Platoon take down Zoda and his Dark Million organization?
In the year 2004, the last F-Zero game was released in Japan. But it was never released in the West… Until now! This unofficial translation was made to feel as if it had been released officially in English, with everything translated and localized. So, don’t miss the last adventure of Rick Wheeler… BOOST FIRE!!!
We really hope everyone enjoys it!

User Review Information
Fans do what Nintendon't, indeedReviewed By: Red Soul on 30 Oct 2021
Given F-Zero’s clout and importance as a Nintendo IP, it is somewhat shocking (and sad) it’s been dormant for so long, but fans always have a way of coming through with their passion and love for franchises and this patch is no different.
As the name implies, this is a culmination of portable F-Zero in all its glory, and now all fans will be able to enjoy it, thanks to the hard-working fans that brought this project to fruition.
