Nintendo’s Hiro Yamada has told the official Nintendo magazine that he hopes to share Retro Studio’s long-awaited Wii U project in the not so distant future. Presumably the project will be revealed during a special Nintendo Direct presentation, or at E3 in June. Details on the project are understandably scarce, but Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has already promised that the game will be fantastic.

 “I wonder what kind of game it is? I hope to introduce it to you in the not so distant future.”

  1. Can’t wait to see what they are working on. :) A lot of people say it will be Metroid so if it is then it would be really kick ass. :3

  2. This confirms we will see this within this year , and hopefully within the next few months in a Nintendo direct.

    here’s hoping for F-zero , Metroid or Starfox :)

    • It seems that they did Starfox just to check if there still is an audience for that franchise. So much that they didn´t work on some features, like online play.

    • blame nintendo on adventures, it was supposed to be a game called dinosaur planet for the 64, but nintendo saw it and said make it a star fox game, so it was changed and rushed out for the gamecube. half of them were against it, and i wish it would have stayed how it was supposed to, even if it wasnt a bad game. it would of been probably a great game if it stayed what it was supposed to be

  3. What would you be disappointed with? I’d be slightly disappointed if it was actually another Donkey Kong Country or 3d Donkey Kong platformer. I’d love a Metroid far more than a Star Fox or F-zero. I’d be heavily disappointed with a Kirby game. Would Nintendo outsource a new IP?

  4. It needs to be Starfox. Since the wii didnt have a Starfox game that needs to be it. It’d look amazing in HD and that would definitely help move a few consoles and finally bring a really great 1st party game to the Wii U. There has been enough Metroid in the last 10 years with the Prime Trilogy

    • although i wouldnt mind a new starofox to say there has been enough of metroid the last ten years is blasphemy! the prime games are a first person person games done right, an the wii-u an nintendo need a first person shooter with proper hd graphics to show all those doubters that the wii-u has power, an can deliver a true next gen hd experience! i love the prime games,they r some of the best games i have ever played,an i bought a wii-u on launch day for over £350 even though i didnt want to play any of the launch line up, because i own and play on all platforms including pc,i only bought it for retros secret project,hoping an praying its a prime game,the tablet controller was made for the visor, it would fit so well, an i hope they also use the wiimote plus, the prime trilogy on wii was like a religious experience!

  5. What is this- a broken record? “Starfox, Metroid, F Zero, New ip”…

    I think it would be cool and sort of make sense if they’re making a… Pokemon Snap game for the Wii U.
    -Pokemon sells well
    -Quite a few people have left Retro Studios; it’s not the same studio that it used to be.
    -it would be a simpler project that would help train the “new” Retro team with hd and Wii u.
    -Pokemon Snap could potentially use the gamepad in new and intresting ways. (A PanoramaView-type Pokemon game would be amazing)

    I haven’t really been hyping myself over Retro really so I’ll be fine with whatever they choose; I’m sure it’ll be great regardless of what they’re working on.

    • No no no. I almost always hate crossovers. Besides both being in space there’s no reason as to why they would do a crossover. May as well have a starwars and Metroid crossover lol.

  6. So have heard through various sources there’s few games in development ie F zero and eternal darkness.Am not to sure if nintendo doing these or other developers.

  7. I feel a lot of people will be disappointed because this game possibly can’t live up to this hype. Kind of like the new Daft Punk single.

  8. personally I would suggest nintento for a new IP that be able to appeal hard core (not nintendo core) gamers… they need one IP to feel gaps…

    • I wouldn’t be surprised I never thought it would be. Starfox all the way. Metroid will come in like 2015. Remember people gotta space out the big games throughout the Wii Us life span or we get a repeat of the Wii where the last 2 years had NOTHING lol.

  9. This supposed game has risen so much hype that I fear it will not live to the huge amount of expectation that the gamer have of it.

  10. HUGE BIT OF ADVICE FOR EVERYONE: DON’T EXPECT STAR FOX, METROID, OR F-ZERO.

    If you don’t expect them, then you won’t be disappointed if it isn’t true, and you’ll be even happier if it IS true.

    • I will continue to firmly believe its Starfox like I have been saying since last year before E3. Once again. My sixth sense for guessing Nintendos things will be true and people will have to once again say well fuck…you were right again. Don’t know how you do it but you were right.

  11. I would want a new Star Fox game only if they went back to the original timeline with the original Star Fox and Star Wolf teams/voices, forget about Panther, Crystal and all the stupid characters they created for Command, just make a sequel to Star Fox 64 in the same period of time just like they do with their other franchises, I don’t need to see an old Peppy staying on board the Great Fox or Fox passing trough puberty having love problems with Crystal, he had a very cool personality before…

    Like

    • They would practically have to reboot the whole story to do that, since Star Fox Adventures establishes that the team had no major jobs after 64.

      And how could you think of Krystal and Panther as stupid. I liked those characters. And don’t get your hopes up for old voices. The current ones are fine.

  12. Metroid for me! That would be awesome. Can’t get enough :) Another trilogy like Prime would be sweet. I wouldn’t mind a shooter in general. Just please no DK, I just can’t get hyped about that. :/
