“Climb the Grand Prix standings to unlock tracks and vehicles while you speed around 20 different courses across four difficulty levels to prove you’ve got what it takes to rank among the galaxy’s most elite racers,” the game’s description reads.

F-Zero Maximum Velocity was first launched on Game Boy Advance in 2001. The game was developed by NDcube and published by Nintendo as a follow-up to F-Zero X.
