Rumor: Star Fox Racing Spin-Off Coming to Nintendo Switch

They have released a title since Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on the Wii U, and since then, and the announcement of the Switch, many wondered what their new game for the new system would be.

What are your thoughts on Star Fox Grand Prix, assuming the rumors turn out to be legit? Something like Diddy Kong Racing mixed with F-Zero essentially.

The Diddy Kong Racing comparisons, on the other hand, could actually end up fitting fairly well.

Retro Studios, the developer behind games like Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, is rumored to be working on a new Star Fox racing title.

He added: "The pressure and the passion that I have to win this championship are far greater than I've ever had it". It was the first one-two of the season for Mercedes , which had struggled to keep pace with the Ferraris.

These means that rather than being a space combat shooter, Star Fox Grand Prix is more likely to fall into the racing game genre.

It's also a little-known fact that Retro helped out extensively on Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS, and so do have quite a bit of experience making non-simulation-based racing games. While no specific details about the potentially scrapped project were revealed, it allegedly "went through a rocky development cycle".

The whole concept sounds strangely similar to The Curse of Pigma, one of several endings to Star Fox Command. An F-Zero game from Retro is something I can get behind. The arrival of a new form of Star Fox could signal some new popularity for the series though, and that's worth a celebratory barrel roll no matter what. The Ubisoft developed game has since earned critical and commercial acclaim.

A new rumor suggests that a new Star Fox game is in the works, but not in the way fans of the franchise would expect. But it would seem as though we'll be seeing Retro again in less than a month at E3 but this time with a different Nintendo IP.
