F-Zero: GP Legend (F-ZERO ファルコン伝説 Efu Zero Farukon Densetsu?) is a futuristic racing video game for the Game Boy Advance handheld. Developed by Suzak, it was
released in Japan in 2003, and in Europe and North America, in 2004.
F-Zero: GP Legend is the fifth released installment in the F-Zero series and the successor to F-Zero GX. Considered a reboot of the franchise, this game is based on the anime. F-Zero: GP Legend has gameplay very similar to Maximum Velocity.
F-Zero: GP Legend offers time trials, a Challenge mode, and four Grand Prix events. Link cable racing allows up to four players to compete together.
The game features over 30 playable characters and 8 playable characters in Story mode including newcomer Rick Wheeler, the evil Black Shadow, and series hero Captain Falcon. As in earlier games, a story-driven campaign leads players in a series of futuristic races through the diverse environments of many different planets. In the story, many different people can be used but most have to be unlocked.
In Japan, F-Zero: GP Legend had support for the e-Reader. Swiping the GP Legend cards while playing the F-Zero: GP Legend game allowed for extra tracks, only available with the cards. However, this ability was not available in the US or European versions of the game, as the e-Reader proved unpopular in the US and was never released in Europe.
