Rumor: Retro Studios working on Star Fox racing game for Switch

Star Fox Grand Prix is cross between F Zero and Diddy Kong Racing claim rumours

Star Fox Grand Prix is cross between F Zero and Diddy Kong Racing claim rumours

It seems improbable that Nintendo Retro Studios would create such a game, yet there have been more than a dozen posts on Reddit that claim otherwise, as well as multiple gaming sites and blogs.

Though the tipster doesn't explicitly say it will be announced at E3, this is very likely.

The internet rumor mill is churning once more, and this time around it's revolving around Star Fox.

When it was revealed developer Retro Studios wasn't working on Metroid Prime 4 (it had, after all, made the previous three) we were left wondering what the Texas-based outfit would do next - apart from handling the Switch port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, that is.

The Diddy Kong Racing comparisons, on the other hand, could actually end up fitting fairly well. While the reporter can not confirm that Star Fox Grand Prix is the name of the new project of Retro, some details of the information presented above go with what he has heard about it.

Diddy Kong Racing, developed by Rare and released for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, was a fantastic title that is often glossed over in Nintendo history. Many scoff at the possible new take on the franchise. A Star Fox racer certainly isn't what I'd have chosen for Retro to work on next, but, that said, it sounds like this project is essentially a new F-Zero in disguise. However, it's useful to note that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was widely chastised when it leaked prior to its proper E3 unveiling. "It is called Star Fox Grand Prix". And if that's the case, Nintendo is nearly certain to pulled the curtain back on the project at E3 next month.
