As a massive fan of Retro Studios, I was personally a bit disappointed there were no announcements at Nintendo's E3 conference regarding what the team is up to. IGN just asked Reggie Fils-Aime to spill the beans — but no dice!
"[I]f I disclosed what Retro is doing," claimed Reggie, "I would have the president of Retro literally calling me right now saying, "Reggie, what are you doing?" We love that people are interested. We love surprising people. I remember getting the questions before we announced Donkey Kong Country Returns. And I loved unveiling that. So... Rest assured, the team is hard at work. But I'm not gonna tell you what they're working on."
With Metroid Prime being one of my favourite games of all time, and Donkey Kong Country Returns featuring — in my opinion — some of the best level design I've ever seen in a 2D platformer, rest assured that I will throw massive amounts of money in the general direction of whatever Retro Studios is currently working on.
Reggie plz: more info!
