Retro Studios is sort of like the 'Rare' of modern Nintendo, a sort-of first party studio that consistently churns out amazing titles for the company. After successfully bringing Samus to the 3D plane with the Metroid Prime trilogy, they then went on to make two excellent new entries in the Donkey Kong Country series. Naturally, fans have been curious as to what the studio is busy working on now, but it seems that the inevitable next game will be something unexpected.
Emily Rogers – a source who managed to leak the upcoming Paper Mario: Color Splash ahead of its official announcement – recently took to Twitter to discuss the next project from Retro Studios. Evidently, her sources claim that the next game from the company won't be a new Metroid, Donkey Kong, or (oddly enough) Diddy Kong Racing 2, but something entirely original. Moreover, the project is supposedly in development for the NX.
Obviously this is something to be taken with a grain of salt, but there's been talk for quite some time now that Retro would be making an original game next. Only time will tell.
What do you think? What could Retro be working on? Would you rather they be working on Donkey Kong or Metroid? Drop us a comment in the section below.
