Less of a symphony, more of a cacophony.

Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Nintendo: Retro Studios May Develop New Miyamoto-Led Project

MetroidPrime
developer Retro Studios could very well be tasked to develop the next brilliant project dreamed up by the legendary Mariomastermind,Shigeru Miyamoto.

In an interview withONM,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.
