Hey, remember that rumor about Retro Studios’ latest game? The one that said that they were working on a crossover between Star Fox and Metroid? Hate to burst your bubble, but this myth has been busted.
Funnily enough, the person claiming that this rumor is false is the same person who spread the rumor in the first place. The Paul Gale Network said that “This game is not what Retro Studios is working on and it will not make an appearance at E3 next week.” He did go on to say that the idea was one of several ideas that were at least proposed to Nintendo.
I suspect the reason why many people believed this rumor and spread it like wildfire is because the Paul Gale Network had previously leaked PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale six months before it was revealed. What people forget is that they also spread a rumor that the developers behind Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arhkam City were also planning to make a mature TMNT game (http://mynintendonews NULL.com/2012/01/23/batman-arkham-city-developer-making-mature-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-game-for-wii-u/), which has been flat-out busted (http://mynintendonews NULL.com/2012/02/10/batman-arkham-city-developer-isnt-developing-a-mature-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-for-wii-u/) by the developers themselves.
With E3 just around the corner, we’re probably going to see what Retro’s has really been working on. Personally, I hope they’ve been working on a new Star Fox game.
…a man can dream, can’t he?
