More speculation on what's to come from Nintendo at this year's monumental E3 expo. Some of these are a bit more believable than others. What say you?
I might believe a little over half of what these rumors imply. That StarTropics rumor doesn't sound plausible. I don't even think Retro could get the rights to it, though I haven't even finished Zora's Revenge. Nintendo looks like it's going all in with as much software as they can possibly muster either way it goes, specially for the holidays. I sure would like to hear about a new StarFox or Metroid at some point.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... "IGN praised the creative gameplay of StarTropics, calling it 'the natural evolution of the original Legend of Zelda.'" >If true, maybe this is a Test to see if they can run Zelda. Miyamoto has joked that RETRO might do the Next Zelda.< But like YOU said: "I sure would like to hear about a new StarFox or Metroid at some point." I agree. "Well Said" or it could be "Raven Blade" Raven Blade was a Retro project that got cancelled by Nintendo- I heard it was because the game looked better than it could play. It was one of the reasons I bought a GC- But MPs made me forget.
Nintendo owns the rights. It's a Nintendo IP and the the games in the series were both published and developed by them.
Metroid Prime 4!!!!
Are you trying to give me a heart attack? haha An all new 3D Metroid. :p *ahhhhhhh heaven*
This all sounds awesome!!!!!!! But for Mario Kart U, I'm sure Nintendo has grand ideas for that!
This would be awesome. I've never heard of Star Tropics so I hope Retro's game isn't that, but the rest sounds great.
Even if it is, it probably wouldn't be bad, you know. Retro's games are pretty stellar. I've yet to see them produce any crap.
You need to do whatever you can to play one of those two Star Tropics games. They really are great. It's such an old IP without any mention in years that a lot of gamers probably never played it. It definitely needs a come back. It would definitely fill the Zelda gap between games.
No insult but how old are you?That game is a classic the story was great and it was a game that was rated up there with the old school Zelda games. I would recommend youtubing the game for footage. If Retro could get a hold of this game I could only imagine what could happen.
I'll be 17 in September.
there's not much to expect when it's behind closed doors...
If only MS had done that last week. I'd have rather stared at a closed door for 1 hour.
Behind closed doors.....with multiple Nintendo directs about everything that will be at e3 and all the demos going to a bunch of best buys around the country for the public to view and an open conference letting the media get to demo the games while they give the conference while every other major conference will be a staged and scripted event. Try hard next time. E3 is going to be great for all company's this year
Getting my Nintendo fixes on 3DS ATM, but will defo pick up a Wii U after price drop / console revision simply for Mario Galaxy and Wind Waker HD.
Awesome rumors but mario kart u as a suited up mario kart 7 just sounds lazy
I am just ready to be wowed.
new mario plz
If it was a star tropics game we would have already heard about VC releases of the first 2 titles. They need to get people up to speed if they're going to do another one. My bet is on something in the Earthbound series. Possibly the Earthbound that was being worked on for N64 resurrected?! They already announced that earthbound would finally be released on VC so that shows me they are trying to build hype for that series again. It just makes sense. Also, I really hope to see a program to make HD ports of some of these incredible 3ds games. Kid Icarus really should have just been a wii u title and Luigi's Mansion is pure gaming gold that would sell a few Wii u consoles.
They've already released the older StarTropics games on VC for Wii.
Most people do not know about Star Tropics, they would have had some virtual console releases to get everyone up to speed about the series. Retro and Reggie said that the game was Sci-fi and was a series everyone wanted them to do. The number 1 game series like that would be Metroid. The number 2 game series like that would be Star Fox. Also, Mario Kart is a series Nintendo has always been creative and original with, they wouldn't just make it a Mario Kart 7 clone. Both of these rumors would be the opposite of what Nintendo needs for the Wii U.
Plus that 3D mario game name is too long and ridiculous to be true.
Why is everyone quoting that gaf rumor like its fact?
What does "GAF" stand for?
NeoGAF refers to the Neo Gaming-Age Forums (GAF for short)
Its one of it not the biggest game industry forum on the next. Actually big name devs frequent there. That thread was made to call out a poster who pretty much everyone believed was full of crap. Now people are posting it like its verified fact. If you actually read the thread, everyone is in agreement that it is bogus. The guy who made it just wanted to put into focus so he could get the user that said it banned.
