Sand Ocean is a desolate planet whose entire surface is covered in sand dunes.[1] This planet's extremely arid frontier planet was thought to have been completely void of human life for many years. However, F-Zero GX revealed that ruins of a 30,000-year-old civilization was found deep within the desert along with a monstrous alien lifeform by a fearless adventurer. This resulted in the planet becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the galaxy.[2]

Appearance in the gamesEdit

Sand Ocean appeared once in the original F-Zero game as part of the Knight Cup. It is a somewhat medium sized track. In F-Zero X it appears three times: once as a simple pipe course, once as an undulating course with a tunnel and once as a cylinder course with two loops. It also appears twice in F-Zero GX. Surface Slide is a basic track with "S" turns. Lateral Shifts requires you to shift your machine to the left or right to avoid falling off the course. It appears in F-Zero GP Legend 3 times: Caterpillar is based on Lateral Shift from F-Zero GX, Caterpillar II is a harder variation of Caterpillar, and Sand Ocean (SNES version) appears as a track in the Platinum Cup.

Trivia Edit

  • In F-Zero, the Silence track can be found on the west side of this course.
