Rumour: Retro Studios Has Another Project In Development Alongside Star Fox

Star Fox Grand Prix is said to be a spin-off racing game which has been linked to Diddy Kong Racing and F-Zero.

It seems improbable that Nintendo Retro Studios would create such a game, yet there have been more than a dozen posts on Reddit that claim otherwise, as well as multiple gaming sites and blogs.

Hello. Add your message here.

This rumor originates, from a Reddit user DasVergeben, who writes;"What Retro Studios is working on is a spinoff based on an existing Nintendo IP that they haven't worked with before...." But if the latest rumours are true then the answer is to put them both together to make a new game. The tentative name of the rumored game is Star Fox Grand Prix.

Although according to some fan theories F-Zero and Star Fox are set in the same universe, and at the very least Star Fox games have shown the characters competing as race drivers in various epilogue sequences.

The whole concept sounds strangely similar to The Curse of Pigma, one of several endings to Star Fox Command.

Obviously we have to take all of these "leaks" with a grain of salt, but honestly I'm more apt to believe literal strangers on public forums over video game "insiders" who like to guess at things or parrot embargoed information. In fact, a "logo" was "leaked" to the outlets as well, check it out. And if that isn't enough to convince you, Eurogamer have stated that they too have heard of the Star Fox racing spin-off from their sources.

Retro most recently dropped Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch, a re-release of the original Wii U version of the game that dropped back in 2014.
