Retro is probably one of most secretive team in industry, like that isnt enugh, team that works for Nintendo.
Star Fox Zero wasnt good game, that doent mean that next game want be good or that will perform same. F-Zero also was never strong IP.
Nothing tells us its cart game, and it sounds that game is quite big.
I'm talking on the fact that Star Fox Zero bombed hard for Wii U exclusive standards. I just cant comprehend why they would go right back to an IP that severely underperformed on a disappointing system where nearly every Nintendo exclusive sold well on. I think if they wanted to rework the Star Fox franchise this would be the exact way to do it (because let's be honest, Star Fox's system of a $60 game for a 3 hour on rail shooter is sorta outdated in today's modern gaming landscape). However, Star Fox (minus Star Fox 64) has performed relatively equal to F-Zero. I just think it would be better to revisit a franchise that hasn't seen the daylight for 15 years than to rework a franchise that is seemingly dying as compared to its peak.
Again, if this is real, I trust Retro to make it work, it's just not what I wanted and I don't think it's likely. Until this is shown off in the E3 Direct, I have no reason to believe this is real.
