It has been a long time since we first learned that Retro is working on a project for the WiiU. The studio said they are working on a game that everyone wants them to make, but what exactly is this game? Let's look at the big clues we have so far.
Might be a star Fox game. Who knowns
Would be great if it was Star Fox, a proper follow up to the the classic N64 game is way overdue.
Way overdue, definitely agree
Looking at the clues I think it's either Star Fox or Donkey Kong Country Returns 2.
what RETRO STUDIO should revive is looong time wait games: Contra Alien war 3, Gradius,Einhander,G-darius,Ray crisis,Double Dragon,Battle Toad,Battle Arena Toshiden,Metal Slug,R-Type,Star fox,F-zero,JAX & DAXTER,GAUNTLET,CHAMPIONS OF NORRATH.....
Totally agree... but it could be a new retro game all together
That's true, but the clue about "something that everyone wants" makes me think that this will be an established ip. I know that new ips are exciting, and that nobody really hates them, but people have been asking for StarFox ever since the Wii was released.
Well, you could argue that everyone wants a completely new AAA IP from nintendo, with a new mascot. :P
I have to admit it, I'm a Retro Studios fanboy. I don't give a hot damn what they are making I'd bet whatever it is it is awesome.
totally. metroid prime: 10/10
Well said, sir.
Hopefully a new Star Fox game
I think that they may be working on more than one IP. It is possible that he Star Fox X Metroid rumor had some basis in reality- not 1 game but 2 separate games. In the beginning of its time with Nintendo, Retro had 4 or 5 projects going at once- until Nintendo took them over and taught them to focus on one project (Metroid Prime). Honestly, I would also like to see them realise "Raven Blade".
It's Metroid at least that's what I'm hoping for maybe :) and I really hope Retro makes a 3DS game perhaps a Donkey Kong Country 3D game similar to Super Mario 3D Land.
It wouldnt suprise me if Nintendo had them making the next Zelda for WII U.
I'm hoping for Banjo-Threeie
Day 1. I'll blindly pre-order whatever it is.
Super Mario U = Super Mario 64 2 That is my guess.
Retro is good at making reflective textures in a game. so its would either be R-zero, star-fox, metroid, or a new IP. Personally, I think Retro is working on a new IP, possibly a FPS like Halo or Gears.
Please god let it be Star Fox!
