Fire Field was once one of the greatest places in the galaxy to harvest minerals. But the leading resources company was too greedy and dug too deep and hit a volcano. It caused a huge explosion that turned the place into a fiery hell full of extremely hot magma. The resources company was driven to the crisis of bankruptcy, but teamed up with project F-Zero and constructed an F-Zero circuit amongst the crimson lotus flames.
Appearance in the games
Fire Field first appeared as the last and hardest track in the original F-Zero. It features dangerous turns and a fork in the road near the end.
In F-Zero X, Fire Field is the first track of the King Cup, it's easier than in the original, but has a zigzag jump and a sharp ascent. Fire Field 2 in the EXpansion Kit, has an 180-degree rollover as well as a cylinder that can throw you off at the end of it.
In F-Zero GX, Cylinder Knot is a simple cylinder course and Undulation lacks guardrails in many places and the track's elevation is constantly changing making it very dangerous.
F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
In F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Fire Field appears as the final two tracks of the game, Land Mine Circuit, and Warrior Circuit. Land Mine Circuit, as the name of the track states, it a circuit with a barrage of mines, it also has lava and has wide areas to dodge the mines. Warrior Circuit also contains mines, however, it is filled with many turns and more obstacles.
F-Zero: GP Legend
In F-Zero: GP Legend it appears again as the fifth track for the Bronze Cup (Blast Track), and the fourth track (Wreckage Circuit) in the Gold Cup. Blast Track is a simple oval but is riddled with bombs and lava at the edges, and is used as an obstacle to avoid. Wreckage Circuit is a simple track but the turns are circular with bombs around.
In F-Zero Climax, two tracks and it's Expert and Master variations appear. Heat Circuit is a simple track with turns and lava, while it's variation Burnt-Out Rink, includes explosives and a few more turns on the track. Front Line 1 (and 2) is a track decked with Lava and Explosives.
Also, the SNES F-Zero Fire Field appears in both GP Legend and Climax as the final track in the Platinum Cup, nearly unchanged. Fire Field is the only course to appear in every F-Zero game.
