Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country Returns developer Retro Studios has moved to a larger premises, hinting that the company is expanding to handle significant support for Nintendo's Wii U console.

According to, the move was very hush-hush, and no press release was issued to mark the event. Instead, Retro has simply quietly updated its address details on various sites:

The old address of Retro Studios was 1835A Kramer Lane, Suite 100. Austin Texas. The new address of Retro Studios is 12345 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin, TX 78753. A quick search on Google Maps shows that the information is correct. Retro Studios has added this new address in addition to its Facebook page.

It's no secret that Retro is working on Wii U software, but could this move suggest a much more expanded role than people previously assumed? Time will no doubt tell.
