Retro Studios adds talent from Naughty Dog (Uncharted 3) and Vigil Games (Darksiders).
Funny, cause I've always made the analogy that Retro is to Nintendo as Nuahgty Dog is to Sony. But good additions, Retro.
Yep I'm very curious what they'll crank out.
Eric Kozlowsky left naughty dog to work with Retro. Eric is a environment designer it looks like. He made alot of the uncharted 3 layout. check out his portfolio> http://www.landofkoz.com/po...
Bergoo, that really makes me think there's going to be a new kind of Metroid coming. They wouldn't make that investment if they weren't looking for some amazing atmospheric environments, and if this is from a Nintendo franchise... well, do *you* think it's a Donkey Kong game? ;)
And what Rare used to be, I wanna add. Retro is my main reason for wanting a Wii U, with Monolith Soft, GC VC and Zelda being the others at the moment. Seeing what these studios did with the humble Wii, I can't wait to see what they'd do with a next gen console.
Come on retro. Make an awesome metroid game for wiiu.
Well it's obviously a Wii U game, and it's probably a new Metroid game. But I would also put my money on it maybe being a new F-Zero, although I would have thought Sega would be on board for that. But seeing as Naughty Dog and Vigil games are known for third person action games, my money is on a Metroid game in the style of Uncharted, cinematic third person moving away from the prime first person games.
metroid wii u.nothing left to say really
Correct. Which means metroid will be as amazing as metroid other m on the wii. I've never had such apathy for a new console in history like I do the wii u. Nintendo is releasing the wii u this year and we've already seen the system and the controller but we haven't seen one game or anything technology-wise about the wii u. I predict mass amounts of now gen hi def system third party games on wii u on release and a while after.
Are you insecure becuse it's gonna be 2.5x faster then a ps3 based on the GPU alone?
I didn't think it was possible for retro to get anymore awesome
nah, just remake metroid prime 1 but in real HD (not those "HD" ports they do on ps3). I mean new textures, lightening, engine, everything!!! (...and make it for PC while you're at it XD).
And that actually doesn't seem so far away! from looking at Eric Kozlowsky art, it fits perfectly for a LoZ game. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
It's over already now....
lol, it is Gyromite Wiiu!!!
