Since Nintendo sees F-Zero as dead on arrival already, perhaps they could use the franchise as a platform to try improving their game at online services. Make a low-poly, 32 or 64 multiplayer free-to-play
F-Zero that runs partially on a remote server
, that you can fully enter into either by paying some extra pocket money into the online service or by earning rank in free play. Make it into a tournament just like the in-universe GP, with cost rubberbanded against the other playerbase so if nobody wants it it's just strain off of the bandwidth anyway, and if it's popular people will crop up paying money into keeping the servers up and running well. It would be like an entrance fee to participate in the tourney.
