Star Fox Grand Prix Coming from Retro Studios

"These sources did not confirm whether the project being worked on was this Star Fox title". Well, it looks like they might be taking things in a different direction, with a new rumor suggesting that Star Fox: Grand Prix is in development.

According to a Eurogamer report, Retro Studios is now developing a Star Fox spinoff that will have players race instead of fight in space.

More details were revealed through Reddit user DasVergeben, a user who provided leaks previously about games such as Soul Calibur VI, that compared Retro's Star Fox project as a racing game "like Diddy Kong Racing mixed with F-Zero". The secretive Texas-based developer has been a favorite amongst hardcore Nintendo fans since bursting on the scene with Metroid Prime, but they've been even more quiet than usual since shipping Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in early 2014.

Diddy Kong Racing, developed by Rare and released for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, was a fantastic title that is often glossed over in Nintendo history. Which begs the question - why go with the Star Fox branding at all? A sequel, Donkey Kong Racing, was in development for the Gamecube but was eventually canceled due to Microsoft's acquisition of the studio. "It is called Star Fox Grand Prix". Many scoff at the possible new take on the franchise.

What the heck is Retro Studios working on? Boss fights would presumably get carried out as they already are in Star Fox games themselves with some tweaks to suit the new game, and it would be able to offer the trio of vehicle varieties that game was known for via the Arwing, Landmaster, and Blue Marine.
