With the information that Wii U retail games will appear digitally on the console from launch, we can now talk about the rumors surrounding Nintendo’s mysterious white box of future-technology. Huzzah!
Anyway, the most recent rumour is that Retro Studios, the company responsible for the Metroid Prime series and Donkey Kong Country Returns, will be creating a new Star Fox game for the Wii U. The game is supposedly planned to be revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 for short) during Nintendo’s press conference. This rumors comes from Techtroid, a site that doesn’t necessarily have any positive or negative traits about it except that it’s a video game news site. So, is there any potential slivers of truth in this rumor?
The fact that Retro Studios made Donkey Kong Country Returns and helped oversee some of the track designs in Mario Kart 7 seem to suggest that Nintendo has put faith in Retro to be able to play around with some of Nintendo’s other franchises besides Metroid. Retro has also stated numerous times that their next project is, “a project everyone wants us to do.” I also can’t think of a series that hasn’t seen some love in a few years besides Star Fox. Well, there is always F-Zero…
