What’s Retro Studios Working On?

Retro Studios, the developers behind Donkey Kong Country Returns, is working on something – that’s all Reggie Fils-Aime disclosed while in an interview with IGN. Rumors have surfaced about how Retro Studios may be developing a new Star Fox title, but we will not find out until a later date.

IGN: Switching gears, because I’m getting bombarded on Twitter to ask this… Everyone wants to know what Retro is up to. It’s been a couple of years since we really heard from them. When will we hear from them?

Fils-Aime: Rich, if I disclosed what Retro is doing, I would have the president of Retro literally calling me right now saying, “Reggie, what are you doing?” We love that people are interested. We love surprising people. I remember getting the questions before we announced Donkey Kong Country Returns. And I loved unveiling that. So… Rest assured, the team is hard at work. But I’m not gonna tell you what they’re working on.

          1. Everybody wants to be the first at least once here ahaha i think this is pretty fun ahaha never saw this kind of battle anywhere else! XD

            obs:All ready had the FIRST spot u.u


      Seriously, throw yourself a large street party in the middle of a motorway to celebrate.

    1. Rich Kohler of Epic Games have done an outstanding job creating the concept arts of Metroid. Epic and Retro should team up and create a new AAA Metroid title for the U. Thanks for sharing that link, Anonymous.

    1. Yeah you can watch it live. 6:00 PM PDT, 9:00 PM EST, but I don’t know where you live so that might not have helped you.

  1. I hope it’s Zelda. Unlikely though, since we just got Skyward Sword… I could see a HD remake happening though.

    1. Well by all means Retro could have been working on the Wii U title this whole time. However, I imagine they had a different project in store.

  2. And the next question was:

    IGN: Probably not something we’ll hear about any time soon? Or…

    Fils-Aime: Um… Likely not.

  3. I really could care less what they are working on. No matter what, they’re getting my money when they finally release.

  4. I bet it’s that legend of zelda game rumored. knowing retro it’s going to be an epic game, whatever it is.

  5. There is many possibilities:
    -Donkey Kong Country
    -Star Fox
    -ICE CLIMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Choose your favorite! :D

    1. that seems reasonable since they did help with Mario kart.. maybe that was to warm up for another racing game??

  7. Just be anything but Metroid. It’s tiring having to listen to “Please be Metroid Prime 4” over and over again everytime an article like this comes out. People really should let that series go. I doubt Retro wants to do the same thing over and over again.

  8. well nintendo still has their 3DS conference to do. my hopes are a portable sequel to DKCR, or (and this is a longshot) an Earthbound game….maybe? please?

  9. i hope something like the n64 classic 007 or perfect dark but if there gana hit us with something like killer instinct well im compleatly sold on nintendo and wii u fuck ps4 and xbox720 cause im still playing Killer instinct 1 and 2

  10. It will be the best game EVER than, Nintendo will not show at a press conference but only will describe the game via twitts, until a day before the release when they gonna release a 15 seconds trailer.

  11. I’m leaning towards Star Fox. That series needs a real reboot. We all know the excellent job Retro did on Metroid, I want to see what they can do for Star Fox. Leave luck to heaven.

  12. I personally just excited it a Retro title, it’ll be incredible no matter what. I’d like another Metroid game, not neccessarily a Prime, it would be intereting to see a 3rd person shooter Metroid.
    Donkey Kong, doubt it.
    Star Fox, very high probability, fans have been pinning for a true Star Fox since the Gamecube.

    As for Zelda, i think this would be the most exciting to see, Retro always come up with awesome fresh creative ideas, so would love to see a really hardcore Zelda game, plus Retro really push the boundries in terms of graphically hardware, so its going to put the past 8 years of gaming to shame

  13. Also, in relation to games fans have wanted for too long, Game Freak need to plus their head out the ground and make a full 3rd person Pokemon RPG on the WiiU!
