Liam Robertson and Emily Rogers, both known for digging up news with inside sources at Nintendo, have each stated that Retro Studios is working on a new game coming to NX in 2017. Rogers said it’s neither a Metroid nor a Donkey Kong game and that it could be a new IP, while Robertson adds that he’s heard they’re working with Yoshio Sakamoto, an esteemed veteran of Nintendo’s development teams.

This was one of the talking points on
a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

We skipped the usual “True or Trubbish” decisions due to time constraints, but regardless of whether or not the information they’ve presented is true, we think now’s an excellent moment for Nintendo to start treating Retro Studios with a little more independence, like they did in the golden days of Rare. We also think a new IP would be an excellent move, as they’ve shown that they can make incredible games of many kinds, and we’d love to see them flex their creative muscles on their own.

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
