E3 is less than two weeks away, and we still don’t know what Nintendo subsidiary Retro Studios is working on. In fact, we don’t even know if the developer’s new game will be at E3. But last month, Nintendo revealed its plans to introduce the studio’s new project in the “not too distant future,” so it’s possible that we will see the game in the company’s pre-E3 Nintendo Direct, which airs on June 11th.

While some are speculating that Retro Studios is working on a new Metroid title, IGN‘s Senior Vice President of Content & Publisher, Peer Schneider, said in a recently aired Nintendo-centric podcast that he’s heard rumors that the developer is working on a “new brand.” What do you think Retro Studios is working on?

Deadpool, an action-adventure game based on characters from the Deadpool comic book franchise, was previously thought to be coming to the Wii U, though rumors were quickly dismissed, and the game was only confirmed for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. But based on a recent listing made by Amazon Canada, the game is coming to Nintendo’s console. However, this can only be classified as a rumor until publisher Activision confirms whether the Wii U will be getting the game. Deadpool will be released on June 25th.
