What is Retro Studios working on? Here are the clues

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.

Would be great if it was Star Fox, a proper follow up to the the classic N64 game is way overdue.

Relientk774277d ago

Way overdue, definitely agree

Hisiru4276d ago

Looking at the clues I think it's either Star Fox or Donkey Kong Country Returns 2.

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.

deafdani4276d ago

Well, you could argue that everyone wants a completely new AAA IP from nintendo, with a new mascot.

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.

metroid prime: 10/10

Relientk774277d ago

Hopefully a new Star Fox game

CouldHaveYelledUiiW4277d ago

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".

Metroid Prime Dev "Let Down" As Original Credits Excluded From Remaster

Currently, the original developers are credited via a generic slate.

It's safe to say that it's the original developers who conceptualised and built these games in such a way that they're worthy of a remaster or remake today. Even if they had nothing to do with the new iteration, the dev team behind a remaster would be nowhere without the original vision – and so, the original dev team deserves a place in the credits of a remaster. That's exactly how former Retro studios engineer Zoid Kirsch feels.

Based on the work of the original development team.

That's pretty low..

Double_O_Revan490d ago

Depending on how long the credits are for the current team, I can see why it would be decided not to essentially double that.

Welshy489d ago (Edited 489d ago )

How long or short credits are is irrelevant. Every man or woman who put their time into the creation of anything (tv, movies, animation etc too) should have their names stamped on it, no excuses.

Noone realistically sits and reads every name and actually thanks them, but it's important to the people involved to have it there for what small validation or thanks it brings them. A little thing they can show their friends and family for years to come and feel proud to have contributed to. Kind of like seeing your face for 1 frame in the crowd on TV at a football match and having your own little stamp to show you were there.

Without those original devs, there is no beloved game to remaster and put new names on. Disappointing Nintendo, do the right thing and patch it in.
