Retro Studios is one of the houses in the first party development of Nintendo among the most admired. Without these guys we could never play some of the masterpieces such as Metroid Prime or Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, etc which is also their last game, released in 2014.

Many have wondered about what they have been working for the past two years. There is talk of a new intellectual property. Some would like a new Metroid Prime. However, for now the only certainty is the uncertainty.

Now, the announcement on Twitter about hiring staff suggests that the studio is actually working on a new project, almost certainly destined to Nintendo Switch. Will this be the long-awaited new episode of Metroid? Or maybe a new IP?

There are right now no clue to support these claims, the only certainty right now is that Retro Studios is the certainly hiring new professionals for a project that is not yet announced.

  • Technically they have been working on something for over 3 years. They finished development for a Nov. 2013 released of DKC:TR for Wii U. It got delayed to February 2014 not because it wasn’t ready, but because Nintendo wanted to fill in the gaps of there software releases. So Retro Studios has indeed been working on something else for over 3 years!
