It's Nintendo and they're a Western studio, so that probably isn't in the cards. Retro Studios needed like 15 years to get an original IP after being restructured and completely bought out by Nintendo and they apparently blew it as the project is canned. I wouldn't expect them to get that chance again any time soon either.

Retro's situation is different. Their mystery project was had been in development hell for a while, and they and Nintendo were growing dissatisfied with its progress. At least according to rumors. Next Level is more stable at the moment since they're not an official subsidary of Nintendo, and most of their games under them have gone pretty smoothly.

Plus, Nintendo's not afraid of producing New IP, they're releasing another one in just a few weeks (Astral Chain).
