Nintendo: Retro Studios May Develop New Miyamoto-Led Project

Posted on Monday, January 13 @ 04:10:02 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Metroid Prime
 developer Retro Studios could very well be tasked to develop the next brilliant project dreamed up by the legendary Mario mastermind, Shigeru Miyamoto. 

In an interview with ONM, Retro Studios president Michael Kelbaugh explained:

Tanabe-san and his team at SPD [Nintendo Software Planning & Development] are our primary contacts at Nintendo. Please let me be clear: games developed at Retro Studios are a collaboration between members from Retro Studios, SPD and other entities throughout the Nintendo family. It’s a symbiotic relationship that consists of members from all over the world; we are very honoured to be working with such a talented team.

Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe chimed in to add:

We consider Retro as part of the Nintendo family and a very capable game development studio. As a Nintendo development team, they will keep working not only with SPD, but also with the teams in Kyoto. They might even work on a title that Miyamoto-san leads directly in the future.

However, the SPD team assigned to Retro is working together with them as a single team and I hope that will continue this way – on Mario Kart 7, for example, SPD staff were involved as co-ordinators. I am saying this because a very interesting and stimulating chemical reaction occurs when the two parties from different languages and cultures are united under Nintendo’s game production philosophy, and that chemical reaction results in extraordinary ideas.

Retro Studios is currently working away on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is set to launch on February 21st for Wii U. What do you hope the team will tackle next? Let us know in the comments below.
