Do You Hope Star Fox Grand Prix is Real or Fake?

Earlier today the Nintendo community was shaken by a rather juicy rumor. According to a series of alleged leaks (partially corroborated by Eurogamer’s sources), Retro Studios is working on a Star Fox game. That by itself is intriguing, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The rumors go on to say that Retro’s take on Star Fox will be a racing game with a hub world, adventure mode, and boss battles, much like Diddy Kong Racing with a mix of F-Zero.

These claims have sent waves throughout Nintendo’s fandom. Could this
really be the secret game Retro has worked on all this time? All of this is, of course, unconfirmed by Nintendo at this time. Hopefully we’ll find out if it’s true or false by E3 (although that’s no guarantee), but a bigger question is whether or not the fans want it to be true.

Personally, I think the idea sounds pretty awesome. It seems a little odd that Nintendo would transform one futuristic series into a racer when they already have
F-Zero, but seeing as I’ve never been a huge fan of that franchise, I can’t really complain. If anyone can take an old Nintendo IP and turn it into something amazing, it’s Retro Studios. Nintendo doesn’t really seem like they have any clue about what they want to do with Star Fox, so why not pass it off to someone else with a proven track record?

If it ends up being true, there will definitely be a part of me that’s disappointed at Retro being assigned to another existing IP instead of getting to try something new. There’s also a part of me that just wants a
Star Fox game with traditional gameplay, a new story and setting, and no damn gimmicks. I never would have dreamed up a Retro-developed Star Fox racer if you had asked me, but now that I know it’s a possibility, consider me interested.

Rumor: Retro Studios is Making a Star Fox Racing Game

Retro Studios has been diligently working on a secret project for at least four and a half years, and they’ve revealed virtually no hints or clues in all that time. With E3 just a month away, fans are hoping for a big reveal, but the cat may be out of the bag a bit early.

A pretty wild and crazy rumor has been making the rounds lately, as they often do just before E3, but this one might actually have some substance to it. According to various alleged leaks around gaming forums, Retro Studios is working on a Star Fox racing game. What makes this rumor a little more credible is the fact that Eurogamer has stepped forward to state that they’ve heard similar things from their own sources in the past.

If the leaks are true, it sounds like a more ambitious project than just a standard racer. The game allegedly feels like a cross between F-Zero and Diddy Kong Racing. It’s rumored to include a hub world, an adventure mode, and even boss battles, and the title is apparently “Star Fox Grand Prix,” although Eurogamer could not corroborate the title. Someone on 4chan claims to have leaked the logo, but Eurogamer isn’t vouching for its validity.
