Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo EAD, and Retro Studios are working on “fantastic” new projects for Wii U. Depending on the progress of these projects, they will be shown either before, during E3 2013, or afterwards. Which titles would you like to see these development teams create?
Shigeru Miyamoto has told IGN Retro Studios is busy working on a project at this time yet it isn’t a title in the Legend of Zelda series. Even though this is the truth at the present time, Miyamoto didn’t rule out the possibility Retro could be given the chance in the future.
“Retro is very busy right now, but I’m afraid I can’t say exactly what it is that they’re very busy [working] on.”
“In terms of them working on a Zelda, it’s not out of the question, certainly, for them to work on an entire Zelda game amongst themselves. Traditionally I think that the Zelda team has always had a close contact with anyone who’s working on a Zelda game. If you were going to have that happen in the US at Retro, that would be kind of difficult for them to be able to coordinate. Certainly they’re too busy for that sort of thing right now. It would probably require me to be involved to a great extent as well, so I would have to get over quite a bit too. I’d probably have to live in Texas… [laughs]“
The amazing Retro Studios could be the talk of E3 if this piece of news turns out to be true. Apparently, the development company is working on a new Star Fox title for the Wii U and the company is planning to debut the game at E3 next month. The game is stated to not be a launch title for the Wii U but we will have to wait and see.
This is just a rumour for now but it could turn out be very true. Retro Studios did a great job for Mario Kart 7 and now Nintendo may be getting them to release a new Star Fox Wii U game. Official Nintendo Magazine have released an article about the history of the company and here is what it says at the end of it:
While some suggest this new project is likely to be a return to the Metroid franchise, we’d love to see another Nintendo hero get the retro stamp of excellence. After all, having rolled out the barrels for Donkey Kong, perhaps it’s time Retro pulled off a barrel roll of a different kind.
Would you like to this a reality for the Wii U? Hit the comments!
Well this could be one of the best collaborations if it works out. Retro Studios, well known now for helping with Mario Kart 7 on 3DS, may be helping to create a future Legend of Zelda game.
