F-Zero: GP Legend is a futuristic racing video game for the Game Boy Advance handheld. Developed by Suzak, it was released in Japan in 2003, and in Europe and North America, in 2004.
F-Zero: GP Legend is based on the anime of the same name. A sequel was released in 2004 titled F-Zero: Climax.
The game plays similar to the original release of F-Zero on the Super Nintendo and uses features from F-Zero X on the Nintendo 64. The game uses the mode 7 effect to allow the background layers to rotate and scale to display the course.
The boost system is similar to F-Zero X, where the player can use a boost to gain an additional burst of speed (only available from lap 2 of each race). However, this does consumes some of the machine's energy. The machine's energy can be replenished by entering pit areas that can be found on the race course.
In addition to the boost system, the machines can trigger side attacks, similar to F-Zero GX on the Nintendo Gamecube. This allows the player to attack and do damage to other machines, without damaging their own machine.
The game features 34 playable characters, 8 of them are available in Story mode, including newcomer Rick Wheeler (Ryu Suzaku in the Japanese version), the evil Black Shadow, and series hero Captain Falcon. As in earlier games, a story-driven campaign leads players through a series of futuristic races across the diverse environments of many different planets.
