Well, we know Nintendo wouldn't have someone more qualified working on Metroid, so we can assume no one's working on it.

Where was Sin & Punishment?!?! I didn't expect that rumor to come true. Sales just aren't there for S&P. It seemed like a longshot that came out of nowhere.

I don't like to think of Retro doing another Donkey Kong at the cost of their own passions, but they are so good at it that it would be nice.  They seem to be good at making pretty much any sort of game and are being used for technical support in games like Mario Kart, so I guess what they are doing is making Nintendo games better.

I think the current rumor is that Retro is working on a Mario Party spin-off featuring Donkey Kong.

That could actually be pretty fun, especially if there was an emphasis on rhythm using two joy-con for drumming.

I'm thinking a sequel to DK's Bongo Blast would be a better fit for the Switch.

In regards to Retro, Tropical Freeze was 2014, DKCR was 4 years earlier, Prime 3 was 3 years before that. We know that they've also worked on Mario Kart 7 (and the 3DS port of DKCR?) between DKC titles... So if they've maybe done a lot of work helping out other projects, it's not rrrrreally that strange to go 3 years without a new game from them.

Was kinda hoping we would've found out by now, but if they've hit some development SNAFUs as well or maybe canned/reworked an entire project some way into development... Could see why. All speculation of course, maybe they've just been trying to open a bbq place.

The 3DS port of DKCR was handled by Monster Games.

Tropical Freeze was ready to go for November 2013, but they pushed it to February 2014 just to spread out releases. It's practically a 2013 game, since at least they wrapped up work on it in 2013.

Wii Sports 3. The switch from standard rumble to HD rumble has really increased the development time of games.

Promised that I would post the Monster Hunter rumor so here it is.


Gist is that Sony paid for exclusive MH5, contract explicitly forbids a Switch version, doesn't care about XBox and PC.


Detailed all of the things revealed in Monster Hunter World such as open worlds and more "western friendly" gameplay.


But allegedly Capcom is kicking themselves now due to Switch's success and so they are reviving the "Monster Hunter Portable" series with the primary MonHun dev team and that will be considered the true mainline MonHun sequel (MonHun5).


Seems a bit out there, but this "leak" did predict the name of Double Cross (XX) and the multiplat Monster Hunter World, so the rest doesn't seem as far-fetched anymore.


Interesting times for Monster Hunter fans. I'm confident we will see Double Cross in the west at some point, but they didn't want it to overshadow this MonHun World reveal at E3.

I hope this blows up in their face. Gonna cost them way more to produce this westernized MH game and its gonna sell way less than past 3DS games.


I not really interested in new westernized MH myself but it seems insane for them to not include Switch so Nintendo player can migrate to new game. Hopefully they decide 'world' is just a side game and make portable the true MH5.

If I don't hear anything about Double Cross coming the the US by the end of the year I plan on downloading the Japanese version off the Switch eShop. I already wanted to learn Japanese so this could be a fun way to do so.
