There has been no official statement from Nintendo about a new prospective title or re-release of Wave Race. Nintendo’s original Wave Race launched on the Game Boy in 1992, followed up by two sequels: Wave Race 64 (Nintendo 64, 1996) and Wave Race: Blue Storm (GameCube, 2001). With the Nintendo Switch around the corner, perhaps we may be seeing a return to the series.
