"We imagine Retro Studios is one company that needs absolutely no introduction on these pages, but we're about to provide one anyway as the developer is today celebrating 20 years in the world of gaming.
Yes, back in 1998, Retro Studios was born as a game development studio with Nintendo acting as a parent company. Its initial aim was to create games which would appeal to an older demographic for the GameCube (which, at the time, was still a few years away from release). Eventually, all efforts were focused on a new project called Metroid Prime - a new entry to the series which would use 3D graphics for the first time. The rest, as they say, is history."
