Certain rumors about a Star Fox racing game have found their way into the internet for the past few days. The Reddit user DasVergeben recently posted on his account that the secret project of Retro Studios that has been in development might a be a racing game featuring Star Fox.
“It will have an adventure mode of some kind (think Diddy Kong Racing) and there will be some boss fights and a hub world like it too.”
“It is called Star Fox Grand Prix.”
This suggests that the game will not only focus on shooting and eliminating other racers but will be more about crossing the lines first too. After the post of DasVergeben, a logo that seems to have been designed for something called Star Fox: Grand Prix seems to appear which made us even more suspicious about the leaks. Eurogamer also stated that some of the rumors that have made their way up to them also match these leaks. Since all of these have a good reputation for video game leaks, this might actually turn out to be true.
None of us have any confirmation about the project yet, but we do hope that Retro Studios does come up with such a game as the previous Star Fox did not get much appreciated with an average rating.
Retro Studios caught the attention of many when they released Metroid Prime and two of its sequels which were highly appreciated by the Wii fans. Although, the 4th game of the series will not have any involvement of Retro Studios and has been rumored to be in development by Bandai Namco instead.
Considering the record of Retro Studio’s previous racing game, Mario Kart series, we can hope this one to be an apple of the eye for the Nintendo fans. As the 8th game of the series has been a huge hit alongside with revival of the Donkey Kong series. We’ll keep you guys updated on the topic if further leaks or announcements are made.
