Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios may have something to show us at E3 2015.
Retro has hinted at an E3 2015 reveal with a mysterious little tweet.
Can you dig it? http://t.co/kvPfmQZwqC

Obviously one shouldn’t read too much into this, as the team may simply be showing support for colleagues at other Nintendo studios – but I personally am quite prepared to place money on this being our first reference to a new Retro reveal.
In addition to the Metroid Prime games, Retro is responsible for Donkey Kong Country Returns and its sequels. We know it’s been working on a new project in collaboration with a Nintendo team since Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze shipped in 2014 and it’d be great to find out what that might be. Cross your fingers.
I wonder if that choice of phrase – “can you dig it” – means something? Are there any digging related properties Retro might have turned its hand to – assuming it hasn’t fostered its own new IP?
