A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
“Captain Falcon was originally the mascot character for Super NES. Even most people at Nintendo don’t know that. When development of F-ZERO was almost complete, I was doing a bunch of illustrations and someone expressed a desire to make a mascot character for Super NES, with a name like Captain Something. So I started thinking about a character who would match the colors of the Super Famicom controller, with some red and blue and yellow. – Takaya Imamura

I am also very curious and I’d like to ask those people: Why F-Zero? What do you want that we haven’t done before? – Miyamoto
