At this point no one in this thread will be right or wrong about any of these statements. It's all conjecture. The date of release, Retro's current state of affairs, whether this game will be on Switch or Switch 2 or both. The only thing we know for certain is that Nintendo just gave the smackdown to some unknown (to us) developer and told them to stop messing with an IP they obviously value very much. I've been hoping Retro would be involved in this project since it was announced and whether by accident or design that's exactly where we are right now and I couldn't be happier...I mean, all things considered.
I can't get excited until we start to get updates on the game. I don't think Retro is something that I would be excited about, just because there's so many things about the studio we don't know. But yeah, I think it's understandable why people would either dislike or like this news. I can understand why people would be happy or worried.
