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.
