Game hackers have uncovered the entire F-Zero AX arcade game within the code of its console equivalent F-Zero GX for GameCube.
AX was released alongside its console cousin in 2003, and players who managed to track down the arcade version and insert their GameCube memory card were rewarded with a selection of arcade-only tracks.
10 years after its release, dedicated fans have now discovered that not just the arcade are included on the GX GameCube disc, but the entire AX arcade game in fully playable form.
The AX game is accessed via inserting the codes on this page (via Retrocollect) with an Action Replay or Gameshark.
GX owners are then able to delve through AX-only menus and play the timed-arcade modes exclusive to the arcade version.
