F-Zero 99 is a digital-only, battle royale game in the F-Zero series for Nintendo Switch. It is the first game in the F-Zero series since 2004's F-Zero Climax.


Players choose a vehicle and race as an F-Zero racer against 98 other racers. Racers can knock out others by eliminating them or the depletion of their Power Meter. It is based on the SNES version of F-Zero, however there are a few differences; namely:

  • There is a wide starting space until the race diverges into an actual starting track.
  • There is a boost mechanic similar to F-Zero X and F-Zero GX.
  • The Spin Attack can be used to damage other players and boosters. If a grey booster is destroyed, it extends the Power Meter. Destroying another vehicle also extends and refills it.
  • Super Sparks can be collected and used to enter the Skyway; a short track above the main track in which the racer can pass other racers from underneath. The Skyway also features higher speeds, no collision penalties and can be used as a shortcut.
