Nintendo: Metroid Prime devs “hard at work” on a new Wii U game

Posted By | On 07th, Jun. 2012

One of the most disappointing disappearing acts at Nintendo’s horrible E3 presentation this year was Retro Studios and what new game they were working on. After rumours of a Star Fox-Metroid crossover in development at the studio that gave us the Metroid Prime trilogy and Donkey Kong Country Returns, everyone was pretty excited to see what they will reveal.

However, we haven’t seen anything yet, and fans seem to be loosing hope. However, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wants to reassure everyone that they are indeed working hard on a new project.

“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?”” Reggie said when he was asked by IGN in an interview what exactly the talented development studio was working on. “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.”

When he was asked if Nintendo will be revealing the game anytime soon, he said: “Um… Likely not.”

Oh well, at least we know they are working on something, Hurry up and reveal what it is already, Nintendo!

“We’re about to launch a tremendously powerful system,” Reggie went on to say whilst talking about the Wii U’s launch. “A system that pushes out great graphics, a system that has an opportunity to do a lot of things.

“What I’ve heard the fan community say is, I want my Mario, I want my Zelda, and I want the best of third-party. And that’s what we’re looking to bring to consumers.”

Well, the Wii U certainly didn’t impress us at Nintendo’s E3 showing this year. Will you be buying the system? Tell us in your comments below!
