Retro Studios’ Other Big Project May Have Run Into Development Troubles

Metroid Prime developer's other game may have run into trouble during development.

Posted By | On 14th, May. 2018

News broke today that Retro Studios’ next upcoming game may in fact be a Star Fox racer, which- okay, Retro has made an art form out of subverting expectations, out of giving players what they never realized they wanted. But is this actually what they were working on over the last five years? As a reminder, Tropical Freeze‘s development ended in 2013. What have they been doing since?

Apparently, there was a second project in the works at Retro, according to Kotaku– a project that ran into development trouble, and may even have been canceled. This, if true (the report seems to corroborate that Retro is getting Star Fox Grand Prix out), is not the first time Retro has faced development trouble- the studio has a famous history of mismanagement and development troubles on its games, with its first four games all being canceled as the studio was consolidated around the then upcoming Metroid Prime.

If this is the case- what was that other game that got canceled? Did it get canceled? It is important to note that Kotaku’s report never specifies if it was. Will we ever find out more about it?
