Rumor: Retro Studios' next game is a new "brand"

I said years ago I'd like to see them make a Metroid Prime-esque game without being tied down to Metroid, I wonder if this could be it? Or will it be something out of the blue entirely?

New brand is such a broad term. It could be a new I.P. or literally a new Nintendo owned brand that they have never worked on.

At minute 24, Peer Schneider says that he has heard rumors that the next Retro game will be a new "brand". Does that mean a gritty, bald space marine shooter? A star tropics spiritual sequel? Something that nobody has ever imagined? We will know for sure in two weeks!

Do people still see Retro as a graphical powerhouse like they were on the GC?

So a new IP perhaps?

If so, Nintendo must be giving Retro an uncanny amount of creative freedom.

This can be interpreted either way. The only thing we can infer from this is that it is now less likely that Retro is working on Metroid or Donkey Kong.

Could be a revival of a Nintendo IP that went MIA. Retro Studio seems to be the Nintendo studio that do IP revival from the retro gaming days.

Here, Now and maybe later
I cant wait to see what they have in a couple weeks.
I really hope its awesome cuz these guys are under a lot of pressure to deliver.

the idea that it may actually be a new IP gives me some faith they might do it.

If it is Star Tropics, I better be dipping instruction booklets in water for secret codes or I'm going to get violent.

As long as Sakamoto and spd is supervising I'm cool.
I do wish dkcr2 happened though. I need Dixie kong and the glory that was dkc2 to get the returns treatment. And my hope is that when/of it happens, wise is called to compose.

- They'll never make a new brand...

- But look!

- A new brand! *cries*

*Overly dramatic dramatization
