Retro Studios Has Started Work on Mystery Project
« on: March 01, 2014, 08:46:00 PM »

What is the famed studio working on next?

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/36722/retro-studios-has-started-work-on-mystery-project

Retro Studios has begun work on their next project.



Speaking with gaming website GameSpot, Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe stated that the studio, developers of the recent Donkey Kong Country games, Mario Kart 7, and the Metroid Prime series, has begun work on their next project. While this project has been in development for the last few months, Tanabe would not comment further on the specifics of the game.



Shigeru Miyamoto speculated last year about the possibility of Retro Studios working on a Metroid or Zelda game, singling them out as a "high-priority" studio.

What are you babbling "fool me once" for? DKCR and DKC:TF are awesome games.

As toxic as Other M was, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo is just going to let the Metroid property simmer down a bit before figuring out what to do with it.

It's too soon for another Mario title, even if 3D World was the lowest-selling flagship Mario game ever. That Zelda button-masher (oops, I mean, "Dynasty Warrior") game is a thing too now, so I don't think Retro's working on Zelda either

It's not more DK either, I think that's obvious.

It's not F-Zero, because nobody will buy a Wii U, much less a game that will undoubtedly sell badly on it. Also because Iwata's well and truly given up on the hardcores.

Custom Robo? HAHAHAHAHAAHAAA.

Starfox? Hmm, it's the most likely out of the bunch, I think.

As far as it being some dumb-ass party game crap, I don't think Nintendo's willing to waste one of their biggest assets on another throwaway annual Mario Party installment. Well, certainly not stupid enough to, anyway.

Wii Party U rocked. Get out!  :@


But seriously, Wii Party U is a really fun game, and makes one of the best uses out of the Wii U GamePad.

Finish the Return, Retro. For the good of the industry, and because I have an awful lot of popcorn to munch while this and other fora burn in rage.

Even if they are, those are not the games we were expecting out of Rare Retro Studios based on the amount of HYPE generated from hiring news.

I think those people who hyped themselves up over something as nebulous as hiring news should only be angry at themselves.

At this point, I don't care if it's a Metroid game or not. Whatever Retro's game is, please don't let it be another 2D DKC game that just about any other Nintendo studio could have made (and could have made in less than 3 years).

When they were announcing that they were brining in people from the Uncharted (& Crysis?) games, and there were talks of a new secret project, the last thing we were expecting was another Donkey Kong Country the side scrolling sequel, regardless of good it turned out to be.

A big, expansive HD reimagining of The Legendary Starfy franchise.

A reboot of the Metroid series in the style of last year's Tomb Raider and a 2D sequel for the 3DS. They could reuse assets from the DKCR/TF to make the 3DS Metroid Game and build the Wii U Metroid from scratch. The rebooted Metroid would tell the tale of a young Samus as she is stranded on a planet and has to rise up to be  bounty hunter.

They can definitely reuse DKCR's assets in a 2D Metroid. Just replace Kraid with Cranky Kong.

Yeah... No.  While I liked the new Tomb Raider.  I also even said when I was reviewing it that it reminded of Other M at times.
