Retro Games is heralded as the “Naughty Dog of Nintendo,” but if Nintendo were smart, they’d utilize their smaller western developers more efficiently to get the products most western fans are clamoring for.
We all know Retro is doing another Metroid. What we don't know is what type of Metroid game it will be. 2D? FPS? 3rd person over the shoulder? I personally would like a new 2D Metroid but that's just my opinion. Anything Metroid I will take though! As for next level games. I would guess its F-Zero. Seeing the pattern that is forming with them by bring back classics and giving them a fresh coat of paint. I would love to see these get shown off at this years E3. I also STRONGLY feel that Platinum Games is making a new Star Fox as well. Kamiya has gone very quit as of late about wanting to tackle that dormant franchise. In the end who knows really. E3 is real soon and I'm sure Nintendo has a full hand to play. Already know Zelda U will be shown. That's the cake now I can't wait to taste the Icing!
''We all know Retro is doing another Metroid.'' Please give me a source, because everybody said the same thing before DKC Tropical Freeze was announced. At this point, it could be anything: DK, Metroid, Star Fox, New IP, etc. Just don't get your hopes up, please. I don't want see whiny children complain like the E3 incident last year.
WHOA! I was completely content with what Nintendo showed at E3 last year. Like the article states. Nintendo, Reggie, and Retro have ALL been hinting at Retro doing another Metroid game. Just saying the cards are starting to fall into place. Its all pure speculation at this point. Not stating anything as a FACT!
@DryBoneKoopa85 I wasn't implying you were apart of the 'whiny fanbase who wanted metroid' and I am sorry if I made it seem that way. However, you did say in your first statement ''we all know Retro is making a new Metroid game.'' You were stating it as a fact. I would love to see another Metroid from them, but lets try not to jump the gun.
They've been alluding to it, the creative director recently said in an interview if you ask for it you may just get it, or something along those lines. It obviously takes years for full game developement meaning it is likely in developement and because he can't directly confirm he says "keep asking"...
I'm working on a time machine that will take me to E3.
Retro isn't working on a secret game. They've very clearly stated they aren't working on DK or Metroid now.Obviously every game in development is "secret" until revealed. Kinda of an illogical statement to drum up hits.
Obviously it's secret if they won't say what it is they're working on lol.
I want Next Level games to work on a Wario Land game
I actually think that could work out lol. I'm still crossing my fingers for StarTropics. I'm sure that won't ever happen though lol.
Are their any secrets at Nintendo. Their announcements are anything but secret as it's the same franchises some of us have played for 25 years.
Wow I don't know where I've been the last 25yrs since Bayonetta 2, X, SMTxFE, Hyrule Warriors, SmashBros and whatever new games they decide to announce on WiiU soon. I understand that people just think Nintendo should just be putting out new IP after new IP. But most Nintendo fans just want them to revisit the many they have sitting in a vault. Sony didn't get serious about having great first party studios until the middle of the PS2's life cycle. So of course they need new IP's, they're playing catch up still in the software department. They have some teams that make great games, but do they have lasting franchises is the question...
I'm dying to play 2D Metroid for 3DS >.<
LOL Sounds funny but ME TOOOO!
why "secret projects" and not just "projects"? Nintendo always was hiding games, its not new to me. However, i am not 100% sure that Retro is working on a Metroid title....
It would serve Nintendo well to have Platinum working on Starfox, Retro working on Metroid, and Level working on Lugi Mansion U and or the Strikers series... If they are going to double down on the GamePad I would hope all the games have online multiplayer with the gamepad serving as the main communication device.. voicechat / incoming voicecoms..
Oh, I love the Strikers Charged Football Series, on the Gamecube. The Wii Version was basically ruined by the possibility to make 6 goals with one super kick, it basically made the rest of the game meaningless, if you hit it once really good.
Well hopefully an awesome HD Metroid prime. Be kind of foolish to make anything else since Wii U desperately needs a more mature shooter type game with a huge fan base. If they make a 2D I'm gonna scream.
Retro E3 announcement. Donkey Kong Country Animal Rescue! Take off on a new adventure to save all your animal friends from the evil clutches of a new enemy! Even King K Rool's Kremling Krew and the new Snowmads are in trouble! DK and the Gang must band together with their old enemies to save their endangered animal buddies and stop these new invaders from destroying their lands. Coming in 2015 its Donkey Kong Country Animal Rescue!! ......
I hope they let retro do whatever they want, which from recent reports, seems to be the case. That being said, i hope they do a New IP, or a 2D Metroid that is badass. If retro does not do a new IP, i hope Next Level does. If Retro does, i hope Next Level tackles Metroid. I also hope Kamiya gets to do Star Fox, as well as id love to see a new Mario RPG for Wii U soon. Last but not least, i hope the team that does Mario Kart, does an F-Zero after mario kart 8. They have done F-Zero before, and specialize in racing games. (they make all mario karts)
