-Will we ever know who the mystery developer was who swung and missed on this?
Original rumours had it as Bandai-Namco, also working on Ridge Racer 8 iirc. I wonder how development on that is going too.
Oh snap! In my opinion, Nintendo really shouldn’t have announced the game so early, Switch was already selling great. 2017 me would slap me for asking this, but I wonder if Retro is still up to the task? It’s been like a decade since the last one. Still more faith than putting it in some brand new hands.
It is slightly odd. This announcement felt very much like Nintendo in 2013 Wii-U mode where they announced a load of stuff that was years away like Xenoblade and Zelda. Not sure why they felt the need to do that! But to be fair, Sony has done it plenty too despite leading the pack for years.
