Metroid Prime Developer’s New Game Is Neither Metroid Nor Donkey Kong

And it apparently releases in 2017.

Retro Studios is the jewel in Nintendo’s crown- the studio is arguably among the most talented in the industry, and their grasp over game design is impeccable, as shown by the Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country games. So it shouldn’t come as more of a surprise that people are waiting to see what Retro Studios are up to on the upcoming Nintendo Switch.

The good news for many who felt let down that their talents were being expended on a 2D side scrolling platformer like Donkey Kong is that their new title is not a Donkey Kong game. The bad news, for those who hoped for or expected a new Metroid Prime game from them, is that it’s not apparently a new Metroid Prime game either.

This information comes to us courtesy of Emily Rogers (via NeoGAF)- Rogers, of course, has an excellent track record with Nintendo information, as she managed to leak just about everything there was to leak about the Nintendo Switch long before it was announced.

Rogers claims that Retro’s new game is something else entirely, and that it will launch some time in 2017. Whether or not that means that it is a new IP (or just Retro tackling some other Nintendo franchise) remains to be seen.

    Journalist who wrote this. Yes you. Did you even read the entire neogaf thread? This is months old news, which was not started by the parrot Emily Rogers, who by the way does not have an excellent track record, but Liam Robertson.

    How is it that a supposed gaming news website has to be corrected by a random individual on the internet? Do your job, or quit this website.

    “We love working with Donkey Kong. It’s a great character. It’s a lot of fun. We love working with Metroid Prime, with Mario Kart; those are fun, fun games to work on. So, you know, you can’t lose,” he said. “Every one of those IPs have been a lot of fun to play with and work on and [we’d] love to come back to them sometime.”
