Nintendo fans who have been wondering just what the famed Retro Studios has been cooking up will be happy to know that it’s a Star Fox game.

According to a verified Reddit rumour (via Nintendo Insider), Retro Studios is working on a game called Star Fox: Grand Prix, which is said to be a racing game in the vein of Diddy Kong Racing, and F-Zero.

The Reddit user who leaked this information also believes the game will feature a hub world, boss fights, and an adventure mode. Gameplay will be more akin to F-Zero, according to them.

Make of that what you will, but a different user on 4Chan pitched in to verify the information, and even shared what looks like the game’s logo, or at least title treatment.

Once again, these are just rumours, which we’re going to see a lot of in the next couple of weeks leading up to Nintendo’s E3 2018 showcase.

It makes sense that Retro, which has been quiet since the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Wii U, would have something in the works that’s ready to be shown at E3.

Though the tipster doesn’t explicitly say it will be announced at E3, this is very likely.
