A Japanese gamer with Twitter username “Momiji” spent over 5.6 million yen, over $40,000 US dollars, on Nintendo stock and used his opportunity to ask a question during the Nintendo annual shareholder meeting!

More specific, he asked Shuntaro Furukawa – the president of Nintendo – if the company has consider to bring back some fan-favorite game franchises, including the racing game “F-Zero,” which hasn’t had a new game since 2004.

Momiji told Business Insider that he bought 100 shares at 56,430 yen per share (over $400 per share) in February, after selling his stock in another company. After buying one unit of stock (100 shares), he got the opportunity to attend the shareholder meeting, but said it wasn’t guaranteed that he would be able to ask a question.

“I have been playing Nintendo games since I was a child,” Momiji told Insider. “Among them, I can’t get enough of that sense of speed of ‘F-Zero.'”

The gaming-news site VGC translated Furukawa’s response, which Momiji said was an accurate interpretation:

“It is realistically difficult to develop new titles and remakes – including sequels, for every Nintendo game that people request, but we are very grateful and appreciate the expectations our fans have for our games.”

Shinya Takahashi, the company’s managing executive officer, also gave a answer:

“We are always considering how to develop new titles and remakes that can be enjoyed by many players,” he said, according to VGC.

Let’s hope that Nintendo hears the appeal of its fans who dream of the return of the F-Zero franchise, as well as other classics that could be on the gaming giant’s list of upcoming releases.
