So, this rumor seems to pop up every other year, and honestly its usually wishful thinking. Everyone loves Retro Studios, and everyone loves Zelda. They seem like a perfect pair for a western audience (which is indeed Zelda’s biggest market at this point in it’s life span). This time around however, what gives it weight is they are looking to hire a translator to help communicate directly with Nintendo EAD out of Japan, which suggests that Retro is heading a major project that is normally handled by Nintendo EAD alone. Given Retro’s past, it’s likely to be a new Zelda title, or possibly a Starfox Reboot. Both work for me. Hop inside for all the details.
Hand painted style? That screams Skyward Sword sequel does it not? Who knows what they are working on right now, but we will be keeping a close eye on the project.
