Bring back all the members of Retro who left after the original Metroid Prime and fuse them with these new people to make the ultimate studio.

Definitely hoping that they're working on a Zelda game for the Wii U, but hell at this point Nintendo could announce Ninja Theory working a Wii U Zelda and I'd be more excited than if the previous Zelda team handled it again.

An environment artist and a senior character artist, from 2 completely different game with 2 completely different styles. This is a wicked mix that could give something really interesting.

Well you usually hire people with certain experiences to work on certain games. For example the first team at Retro Studios was mostly former Turok, iD and some other guys. So Nintendo made Metroid Prime a first person game. The Darksiders guy, Uncharted guy and some other guys like the 'I can make big landscapes from data or something way too smart guy' indicate that their next title has a 'big environment' but also 'story based' and most likely third person as they hired animators who're experienced with that sort of thing.

Wow, this is the first piece of gaming news to really pique my interest in a long while.

I would love to see Retro create an amazing new Zelda title, SS just didn't quite do it for me.

I love what they did for Metroid, but part of me wants to see what else they can do, and forget about Metroid for now. Unless they're up to some kind of killer sequel to Fusion.

I'm hoping for a new IP rather than Retro's take on a Nintendo franchise, but I have a feeling it'll be just that.

If it is, I'd be cool to see Zelda or Star Fox. I wonder how a Retro RPG would work (I donno why, but I thought of Earthbound first).

I don't think Nintendo wants them back.

What happened to those guys anyway? They left Retro to get more freedom (or something like that) then they never produced anything.

They're owned 100% by Nintendo so NOA's site is basically their site. I'm surprised they still have a site actually.

The Armature boys had multiple deals that all went south. They wanted to be like Mistwalker but for EA, like thinking up new IP's, prototypes and ideas while someone else developed. But the studio they partnered with at EA got shuttered so they had to build up their own staff to develop games and they actually had a deal with Capcom for a title. For some reason Capcom pulled out so that was gone too so they made some assets for HALO: CEA I believe and if I'm not mistaken they're currently working on a Vita game to be published by Sony.

Well after the original Metroid Prime a bunch went to EA and a few to Sony Santa Monica. Then the three major leads of the studio left after Metroid Prime trilogy was finished. They are the ones who developed Armature.

Retro is like the impossible studio. I find it amazing that they managed to preserve fantastic gameplay and fantastic art design between two completely different genres and visual styles, plus losing major members of their staff. Didn't they lose a couple of people after DKCR as well?
