This is the first game in the F-Zero series. For other games in the series see the F-Zero category.

F-Zero (エフゼロ Efu Zero?) is a genre-defining racer for the SNES and was one of the system's original launch titles. The game was originally released in cartridge format for the console but was later made available through Nintendo's digital distribution channels on the Super Famicom (Satellaview and Nintendo Power). In 2006, an emulated version was released for the Wii Virtual Console. That version was re-released for the Wii U Virtual Console via the Nintendo eShop in 2013.

The game was originally released to rave reviews from critics, praising its emphasis on racing with finesse, its soundtrack and its superb graphical quality. Using Nintendo's "Mode 7" display mode, F-Zero could scale and rotate large bitmapped tilesets to produce the illusion of 3D without the need to render even a single polygon.
