BS F-Zero Grand Prix (BS F-ZERO グランプリ) was a four-part Soundlink game to the original F-Zero. It was launched only in Japan for the Satellaview attachment for the Super Famicom. BS F-Zero Grand Prix contained four different playable vehicles and four new tracks near the end of each broadcast, as well as the 15 tracks from the original game.[2] Commentary was provided by Bucky Koba, Tsutomu Tareki, and Seiichi Hirai. A follow-up to the game was later distributed as BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2.

According to Nintendo Power the game was considered to be released via Game Pak.[2]

Circuits

The new fifth tracks have been altered in BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2. Mute City IV was never released until the sequel, so Mute City I, from Week 1, was recycled for Week 4.

Trivia

  • Most of the soundtrack used in the Soundlink games were lifted from the Jazz album (albeit remixed version) or the Nintendo Super Famicom Game Music, while a couple of songs, mostly Port Town, Fire Field, and Sand Storm, appear to be original.
