Nintendo’s Retro Studios might be working on a Star Fox racing game, if internet sources are to be trusted. The leaks originally appeared over the weekend, cropping up in the usual places: Reddit and 4chan. Gaming blogs jumped on the leaks earlier today. Eurogamer says that the leaks are similar to what they have heard from their own sources.
Claims that the game will be like a hybrid between Diddy Kong Racing and F-Zero, while featuring an adventure mode with boss fights and hub worlds, have a plausibility to them, according to Tom Phillips at Eurogamer.
It is speculated that the game will be called StarFox Grand Prix. Or, at least, that’s what the leaked images suggest. All that is left to do at this point is sit back and wait for a response from Nintendo or from Retro Studios. If this is true, though, I am excited. Retro Studios has a history of making decent games out of Nintendo products.
