GP legend Story Mode

Story mode in GP Legend

Following the steps of F-Zero GX, GP Legend includes a Story Mode. Different from the one in GX, here the player can use 8 different characters, each one with their stories. In some points their stories coincide. At first, only Rick Wheeler's story will be initially available, but as certain missions are completed, other player's stories become unlocked for playability.

Like the Story Mode of its predecessor, this story mode contains racing missions which must be completed under various circumstances. Also like GX, you earn Reward money (essentially points instead of tickets,) which you could use to unlock other pilots for Grand Prix Mode; however, this is done randomly once you earnings had been maxed out for a pilot you're using (initially at $2,550,000,000).

  • The way story mode is played could be a possible reference to a Bounty Hunter's profession (specifically Captain Falcon's), as the player is rewarded money for completing certain tasks assigned to them.
