F-Zero Twitter fake account fzerojp @fzerojp NSFW tweet sexual sex tweet Nintendo Japan

Well, there’s a reason we formally categorize those articles as Rumor: Recently, an F-Zero Twitter account @FZeroJP was uncovered and, due to email similarities associated with that account compared to official Nintendo accounts, the F-Zero account was speculated to be real. However, it now turns out that the whole thing was likely just a long con. The evidence that the account is fake stems from the fact that the Twitter account has finally tweeted — and it’s a baffling, sexual animated NSFW video that has nothing to do with F-Zero.

While the tweet does not actually contain full nudity, we won’t be sharing it here, though you can view it via the links we’ve provided. Admittedly, the tweet is pretty hilarious in a juvenile way, its editing being intentionally dumb and generally incomprehensible. But yeah, it’s not something an official Nintendo account would tweet. Some are holding out hope that this is still an official Nintendo account and that it has simply been hacked, but… no.

The “good” news, in a nihilistic way, is that nothing has changed as a result of this revelation. A new F-Zero game is just as likely or unlikely to be announced regardless of whether a Twitter account created back in March is real or fake. Along those lines, I have to imagine it’s not easy being a fan of this franchise these days.
